Star Trek: Discovery moving to Paramount+
A new frontier for sci-fi series in 2022 means a delay for Aussie fans.
Star Trek: Discovery is flying to a new home in 2022 at Paramount+.
Media reports cite a deal signed between ViacomCBS and Netflix will see the title move homes next year, after three seasons on Netflix.
The sci-fi screened on CBS All Access stateside and Netflix across most of the rest of the world, but that deal has now been superseded.
It will also follow to Paramount+ in Australia.
“As we rapidly expand our global streaming footprint, we are bringing more of our top titles home to ViacomCBS for Paramount+ markets around the world,” ViacomCBS Networks International streaming boss Kelly Day said. “We have a strong global and local content pipeline that positions us for success across our regions, and repatriating beloved series like Star Trek: Discovery for Paramount+ is another step forward as we bring fans more must-watch series worldwide.”
The news also means S4, which premieres in the US this week, is delayed in Australia.
