So how about some good news for fans of Paramount+'s Star Trek: Discovery? It's only fair considering how patient they've been since that preview for the fifth season hit their senses back in October, along with a trio of new additions to the cast (more on that below). But this time around, EP & C0-Showrunner Michelle Paradise has some news that should be music to everyone's pointy ears. Yup, that's right… it's wrap time! As in, filming has officially wrapped on the fifth season, and Paradise posted to honor the very special & important occasion.
Oct. 8, 2022 – Paramount+ today debuted a teaser trailer for season five of its hit original series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY at today's "Star Trek" universe panel at New York Comic Con. The new teaser, which was introduced by series star Sonequa Martin-Green, who joined the panel virtually from set in Michael Burnham's captain's chair, unveils a first look at Rayner, played Callum Keith Rennie ("The Umbrella Academy," "Jessica Jones"), along with Moll and L'ak, played by Eve Harlow ("The 100," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") and Elias Toufexis ("Shadowhunters," "Blood of Zeus").
"Aaaand that's a wrap on #StarTrekDiscovery season 5! 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], [Sonequa Martin-Green], and our entire, truly amazing cast and crew. #onedepartment #discofamily," Paradise wrote as the caption for the Instagram post confirming that filming on the fifth season had wrapped:
