Last month it was announced that Paramount+ is coming to the UK and Ireland on June 22nd. We now have more details including how the service will be rolling out the new series Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Paramount Plus UK debuts with Strange New Worlds
Paramount+ UK has announced highlights for their launch in June which includes Strange New Worlds. When the service arrives on Wednesday, June 22nd it will include the first three episodes. New episodes will be available weekly on Wednesdays for the 10-episode first season. This does mean that in the UK and Ireland fans will be running around 5 weeks behind Paramount+ in other regions, with episode 8 of Strange New Worlds set to arrive in the USA on Thursday, June 23rd.
TrekMovie has also confirmed that the UK service will include all four seasons of Star Trek: Discovery and all ten episodes of the first season of Star Trek: Prodigy. There is no word yet on how new episodes from these three original Star Trek series will arrive in the future in the UK, however recently global Paramount+ releases have been in the same week as the USA. Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Picard continue to be exclusive to Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
According to the original announcement, the UK release will include “access to the Star Trek universe.” And the new June update confirms this includes six Star Trek feature films (II, III, VI, Generations, Nemesis, and Star Trek 2009).
Other highlights for the June 22 launch include the first three episodes of Halo, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and Super Pumped along with full seasons for The First Lady, The Offer, Mayor of Kingstown, Yellowstone, 1883, American Rust, Yellowjackets, and iCarly.
