Up until very recently, the Star Trek Discovery season 4 release schedule was looking nice and straightforward. That’s all changed with the news that Netflix won’t be streaming new episodes outside of the US.

What does that mean for you? And what time is the premiere airing on Paramount Plus in the US, anyway? Two very good questions – and ones we’re just about to answer. Join us on the bridge as we bring you everything you need to know about the who, what, and why surrounding the Star Trek Discovery season 4 premiere release date, and its surprise delay in some regions.

Expect that to be the same time for the remaining episodes, too.

Ordinarily, Trekkies in the UK (and in other regions) could rely on Netflix to show new Discovery episodes on the week of release. However, that’s no longer the case. Fans will have to wait until "early 2022" for Paramount Plus to launch in their region before they can watch Star Trek Discovery season 4.

In Canada, you can watch the Star Trek Discovery season 4 premiere on November 18 on the CTV Sci-Fi Channel. It’s streaming on Crave from November 19.

An episode count hasn’t yet been confirmed. The previous three seasons all had differing numbers (15, 14, then 13 respectively) and producing a season under COVID conditions may have hit that number even further. Still, one thing is for sure – we’re getting a new episode every Thursday for at least the next four weeks.

  • Star Trek Discovery season 4, episode 1 – November 18
  • Star Trek Discovery season 4, episode 2 – November 25
  • Star Trek Discovery season 4, episode 3 – December 2
  • Star Trek Discovery season 4, episode 4 – December 9
