From now, Star Trek: Discovery will no longer be available on the popular streaming website; Netflix. It’s been over four years when the series was first launched on the CBS All Access in North America and was available on Netflix for the rest of the world.
But now the Star Trek: Discovery will exit the streamer.
The series followed Michael Burnham and her companions in the USS Discovery, travel into the far reaches of space to meet new life forms and discover new planets.
As reported by Deadline, it was explained that this development took place because of a “just closed deal” between Netflix and ViacomCBS, which is the parent company of Paramount+ and ViacomCBS was successful in “ending the lucrative financial arrangement” which ended up launching Discover back in 2017.
The plan is that the Discovery series makes Paramount+ their new home globally from the start of the next year.
And it’s already in works as Germany, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland and the UK will become the first markets to stream the series on Paramount+. Meanwhile, in Canada, the Series will continue to stream on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and will also steam on Crave as per the deal with the broadcaster.
This new has caught the attention of the series fans considering it comes just before the new season 4 will kick off on November 18th on Paramount+ in the United States.
Star Trek on Paramount+’s official Twitter account confirmed this and even made it clear that Star Trek: Discover’s release plan is moving forward!

Further, even Kelly Day, who serves as ViacomCBS Networks International boss, told Deadline that, “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. 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.”
