Last week, we learned that Star Trek: Discovery is leaving immediately on Netflix, which has been the series' international home ever since its debut in 2017. A lot of international fans were upset about the news as it means that they wouldn't be able to watch the fourth season the same day as its release in the US. Now, we have some good news as Trekkies abroad will now be able to watch the fourth season again on the same day again.
StarTrek.com has announced that the fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery will be available again to the international audience. In countries such as Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Sweden, Venezuela, and many more where Paramount+ is available, the first two episodes will be available this coming Friday, November 26 with new episodes being released weekly.
Meanwhile, in countries such as Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, Pluto TV will be the home of the fourth season where they will drop new episodes at 9pm local time on the Pluto TV Sci-Fi channel each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with a simulcast running on the Star Trek channel in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. The first two episodes will also premiere this Friday, November 26.
The fourth season will also be available for purchase on participating digital platforms starting this Friday, November 26 in countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Russia, South Korea, and additional select countries.
This is definitely good news for Star Trek: Discovery fans abroad as they can now watch the fourth season just around the same time as each episode debuts in the US. This may not be all countries that Netflix covered back when they were streaming the series internationally, at least it closes the gap between all the viewers of the series around the world and everyone can celebrate the new episodes just around the same time.
New episodes of Star Trek: Discovery season four streams every Thursday on Paramount+ in the US.
