Star Trek: Discovery, Section 31 and Strange New Worlds
Star Trek: Discovery is the first of many new Star Trek series. Discovery has aired two seasons, with the third one being close to finishing production. It is set to premiere on the 15th of October. Currently, the plan is to produce both seasons 4 and 5 back-to-back. According to the ITASE, season 4 is set to start production on the 26th of October, with season 5 set to start filming right after season 4 wraps up production. Star Trek: Discovery has spawned two spin-offs which are both still in development.
The first spin-off is the Star Trek: Section 31 series starring Michelle Yeoh in her role as Empress Georgiou. This series will be focusing on the secret Section 31 Starfleet agency. It will be centered around the version we saw in Star Trek: Discovery. Just like Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Section 31 will be filming two seasons back-to-back, meaning it has already been renewed for a second season. Section 31 will begin production in April 2021.
The second spin-off is Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which centers around Discovery season 2 characters Pike, Spock, and Number One. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, like Star Trek: Section 31, will also be filming its first two seasons back-to-back. Production starts in January of 2021.
Short Treks, Ceti Alpha V and the Untitled Star Trek Series
We will also be getting 12 new Short Treks, though Short Treks are generally filmed during the production of Star Trek: Discovery and Picard, so there aren’t any production dates I can share. Seeing as how Discovery seasons 4 and 5 are the first Star Trek seasons to begin production soon, it’s safe to assume that Star Trek: Short Treks will begin production in October alongside the upcoming seasons of Discovery.
As previously revealed by The Vulcan Reporter, the Star Trek: Ceti Alpha V series is being reworked. Ceti Alpha V is a prequel series to the Wrath of Khan movie and consists of three episodes. The reworked version will be produced by the crew behind the upcoming Vikings: Valhalla Netflix series. While the production start date of the Ceti Alpha V series is still being kept under wraps, we have learned that production on Ceti Alpha V is currently set to start in mid-to-late 2021.
There is an untitled Star Trek series in the works which will be shooting in the summer of 2021. I will be publishing an article soon where I speculate about what this series could be.
