Star Trek Day continued with the first details on season five of Star Trek: Discovery, which is currently being shot in Toronto. We have a behind-the-scenes video and a new image, along with a synopsis for the season.
BTS on Disco S5
With the cast busy shooting season 5, there was no panel on Star Trek Day for Discovery. However, Paramount+ showed off a behind-the-scenes set tour, guided by Wilson Cruz (Dr. Culber). The video offered the first impressions of season 5, including a visit with Mary Wiseman, who is returning as Tilly. In addition to some casual chatting with Wiseman outside the set, she can be seen back in uniform on the bridge of the USS Discovery.

Season 5 details
According to the official announcement from Paramount+ the season five cast members include: Sonequa Martin-Green (Captain Michael Burnham), Doug Jones (Saru), Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), David Ajala (Cleveland “Book” Booker) and Blu del Barrio (Adira).
Here is the latest official synopsis for season three:
In season five, Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncover a mystery that sends them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well… dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.
Paramount+ also revealed a first-look image from the new season, featuring Martin-Green, during the celebration.
There was no announced date for the release of Discovery season 5. The BTS video was shot while they were shooting the fourth episode of the 10-episode season. A good guess would be for season 5 to arrive in late 2023.
Discovery currently streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. Internationally, the series is available on Paramount+ in Australia, Latin America, the UK, and South Korea, as well as on Pluto TV in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland on the Pluto TV Sci-Fi channel. It will also stream exclusively on Paramount+ in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria later this year. In Canada, it airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave.
