Paramount+ revealed the first look teaser trailer (watch above) for the fifth season during the New York Comic-Con panel, while also confirming that it will premiere in 2023. Seeing the production schedule ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 5 is likely to release in March 2023 or later on Paramount+.
Showrunner Michelle Paradise confirmed the production wrap via a tweet thanking the cast and crew of the show. She wrote, "Every season I’m in awe of what our team is able to accomplish, and I dare say this was our most ambitious yet. Huge thanks to @CenterWillHold @SonequaMG and our entire, truly amazing, cast and crew."

Callum Keith Rennie, Eve Harlow, and Elias Toufexis are the new faces who will be seen in Star Trek: Discovery Season 5, which will be 10 episodes long, three less than the previous season. Rennie is playing self-described “gruff” Starfleet Captain Rayner, a man struggling to transition from a time of war to a time of peace. Eve Harlow is playing Moll and Elias Toufexis is L’ak - both are former couriers now on the other side of the law.
In Season 4, both Earth and Ni’Var rejoined the Federation. With warp travel restored and the Federation relatively intact, Starfleet is now focussing on exploring the galaxy rather than reacting to a constant stream of threats. Season 4 of the series embodies the human spirit that Star Trek is famed for. Olatunde Osunsanmi, who is a director and producer on Star Trek: Discovery, has confirmed that while season 5 will not involve time travel, it “will go back into the past to get farther into the future,” alluding to the show pulling influences from the exploration-driven nature of Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The returning cast for Discovery Season 5 includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones (Saru), Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly), Rapp (Paul Stamets), Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), David Ajala (Cleveland “Book” Booker), and Blu del Barrio (Adira).
The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michelle Paradise, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Frank Siracusa, Olatunde Osunsanmi, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers. Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise are the co-showrunners of the series.
