Trek fans have much to look forward to in 2022! We’ve just gotten release dates and renewal information for Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Prodigy, and Star Trek: Lower Decks. Which Trek are you most looking forward to? Get out your calendars, jot down these dates, and tune in to Paramount+!
Let’s Fly with Star Trek: Discovery
We’ve been waiting for Star Trek: Discovery to come back from their mid-season hiatus. We’ll get the return of the Disco crew on February 10, 2022. We’ve also got more good news for Disco fans–Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a fifth season! I can’t wait for more adventures with the Disco crew. Just please, hear me out on this one–more Tilly, please!
Engage with Star Trek: Picard
Potentially the most beloved captain in Star Trek canon returns to us this spring! Star Trek: Picard will return to Paramount+ on Thursday, March 3, 2022. Season 3 of Picard is currently in production as well. Tune your hailing frequencies here to Fangirlish, where yours truly will be covering Star Trek: Picard, along with all other Star Trek shows. My hope for this season? More absolute candor from Elnor.
Hit It with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
Perhaps the most hotly anticipated of the new Star Trek shows is the premiere of Strange New Worlds, starring fan-favorite Anson Mount as Captain Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Rebecca Romjin as Number One. This return to episodic Trek will make its debut on May 5, 2022, with new episodes dropping weekly. What do you want to see in Strange New Worlds? I am waiting for the return of Spock’s beard. (Don’t at me).
It’s Warp Time with Star Trek: Lower Decks
Star Trek: Lower Decks fans will have to wait for warmer weather before we find out what happens to Captain Freeman and the crew of the Cerritos. The third season of Lower Decks will premiere in the summer of 2022 on Paramount+. Good news for those who are #CerritosStrong: Lower Decks will return for a ten-episode fourth season. My biggest hope for Lower Decks? I want the Tendi/Rutherford ship to sail!
We’ve Got Phasers with Star Trek: Prodigy
We’ve been enjoying Star Trek: Prodigy here on Fangirlish. The series returned on January 6 of this year and will stream a new episode weekly until February 3, 2022. The remaining 10 episodes of season one will premiere later in 2022. While it’s tough to have to wait so long to find out what happens to the crew of the Protostar, I’m quite certain that it will be worth the wait.
No matter the show, it looks like we’ll have a new Trek episode practically every week in 2022. There’s arguably never been a better time to be a Star Trek fan. Which Star Trek show are you most looking forward to this year? Would you believe me if I said, “Yes”? I sincerely enjoy all Trek and I’m so glad we’ve got so much new Trek to explore.
