Netflix Users Only Have One Week Left To Watch These Star Trek Titles

Star Trek Into Darkness alien

According to  Whats-On-Netflix.com , 2009's "Star Trek" and 2012's "Star Trek Into Darkness" are going to be removed from Netflix in October of 2023. Their removal indicates that an era is over. 

The handlers of "Star Trek" have, ever since the late 1960s, been very good about letting the shows remain available. Even before home video, "Star Trek" was put into seemingly eternal syndication, able to be enjoyed pretty much in perpetuity. Older Trekkies may also recall the Columbia House VHS days, when eager Trekkies could subscribe to a mail-in service that would deliver cassettes — containing two episodes apiece — directly to their doors. Eventually, "Star Trek" would be released in season-by-season DVD box sets, followed by massive proliferation across many major streaming services. Ultra-crunchy Blu-rays also eventually crept into the marketplace.

A lot of Trek's widespread availability stems from Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. The scandal was broadcast on CBS, then overseen by Les Moonves, and the show was produced by MTV, then overseen by Tom Freston. The scandal prompted Viacom head Sumner Redstone to split up his company into two factions, one run by Moonves and the other run by Freston. The split, however, divided Paramount and CBS, which was a bugaboo for Trekkies. Paramount, you see, held the rights to "Star Trek" feature films, while CBS held the franchise's TV rights. That means if Paramount wanted to make a new "Star Trek" movie, it had to license the likeness rights from CBS, even though it was technically within the same company. Any new Trek movies would also have to be legally distinct from the original product so as not to infringe on any copyrights.

Hence, the creation of the Kelvin timeline.

Yes, it seems that the creation of a new timeline for the "Star Trek" feature film released in 2009 was wrought more from legal necessity than creative impulse. The makers of the 2009 "Star Trek" were allowed to use the names and the iconography of old-world "Star Trek," but — rumor had it — that it had to be at least 20% different. Recasting old characters, dressing them in altered uniforms, and changing the look of the U.S.S. Enterprise, then, were done to mark that percentage. Director J.J. Abrams, openly not a Trekkie , made a raucous and action-packed sci-fi adventure picture that was very, very far from the cerebral, diplomatic spirit of "Star Trek" at its height. 

Because "Star Trek" was so broadly appealing in a "space battle" sort of way — and because we hadn't had a "Star Wars" picture since 2005 — it became a massive hit, and Abrams returned in 2012 with "Star Trek Into Darkness," an updated, violent retread of "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." That, too, was a hit, although didn't quite rattle the zeitgeist in the same way. By the time "Star Trek Beyond" came out in 2016, "Star Wars" had returned, and audiences no longer needed "Star Trek" to serve as their light-beer substitute.

While Paramount was making their action-packed films, CBS took advantage of the Viacom schism to push old "Star Trek" reruns onto every streaming platform imaginable. There was a moment when streaming was just becoming "a thing" that no service was seemingly without every "Star Trek" series. Netflix had Trek. Everyone had Trek. Re-watch marathons became popular. Under this model, even the movies became nimble, and Abrams' films started to spread as well.


Paramount and CBS, however, reunited in 2019 . CBS had launched CBS All Access back in 2017, and began to produce new "Star Trek" shows for the first time since 2005. When Viacom re-merged, the service changed its name to Paramount+, and any notions of which TV shows counted as "canon" could be laid to rest. The merger was an organic excuse to put all Trek under one umbrella ... and to no longer share them with everyone. 

It seems that Paramount+, now wanting to be the only home for all things "Star Trek," is gathering everything back around itself. All the new shows, all the old shows, and all the movies will now live in the same house. This means the era of finding "Star Trek" just about anywhere is not comfortably drawing to a close. It's a pity, really. A big reason why "Star Trek" has persisted in the popular consciousness is because it's always been widely available. New generations are watching the shows all the time, and feisty Zoomers can be found, to this very day, giving social media play-by-plays of, say, "Star Trek: Voyager." 

While having every "Star Trek" series and movie on the same service seems cleaner, it feels like a contraction. As we have learned from capricious studio execs, not everything on a single streaming will remain there indefinitely. "Star Trek: Prodigy," for instance, has been removed from Paramount+, and there is no word yet as to where or when it will re-emerge. Perhaps it will behoove fans to check out the 2009 "Star Trek" and "Into Darkness" before they leave Netflix.

After a break, the Star Trek franchise is returning to Netflix . The global streamer has picked up the animated kids series Star Trek: Prodigy for the U.S. and most international territories in a deal with CBS Studios.

It follows Paramount+ ‘s decision in June to remove a number of originals , including Star Trek: Prodigy , from the platform in a cost-cutting content write-down and not to proceed with the previously commissioned second season of the animated show.

The series that launched the current Star Trek universe on Paramount+ (then CBS All Access), the 2017 Star Trek: Discovery, started with a lucrative Netflix deal, which took all international territories outside the U.S. and Canada for a hefty license fee that largely covered the budget for the sci-fi series. That arrangement came to an end in 2021 when Paramount+ took over as the exclusive global home of the series.

Prodigy’s departure notwithstanding, Paramount+ remains the main streaming destination for the Star Trek franchise with originals Discovery, Picard, Strange New Worlds, the animated Lower Decks and the upcoming Section 31 and Starfleet Academy — both slated to begin production soon — as well as the vast Star Trek library.

This marks the third home for Prodigy , which originated as a Nickelodeon series given its younger skew that does not match the rest of the franchise. The series then migrated to Paramount+.

The series was developed by Emmy winners Kevin and Dan Hageman ( Trollhunters ), along with Star Trek universe chief Alex Kurtzman and his team at Secret Hideout. Star Trek: Prodigy is from CBS Studios’ Eye Animation Productions; Nickelodeon Animation; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers, alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. Ben Hibon directs, executive produces and serves as the creative lead of the animated series. Aaron Waltke and Patrick Krebs also currently serve as co-executive producers.

“Thank you to our incredible Star Trek: Prodigy fans, who championed not just a show, but a community that’s always been connected by the belief that we build a better future together,” Kurtzman, Dan and Kevin Hageman said in a joint statement. “We set out to inspire you, but you inspired us. The team is still hard at work on the second season, and we can’t wait to share it with the amazing fans around the world.”

The Star Trek: Prodigy voice cast includes: Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, Angus Imrie, Jason Mantzoukas, Dee Bradley Baker, John Noble and Jimmi Simpson. Also featured in the series are recurring voice cast members Daveed Diggs, Jameela Jamil, Jason Alexander, Robert Beltran and Billy Campbell.

The series received a 2023 TCA Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Family Programming.

‘Deep Space Nine’ Leaving Netflix USA; Star Trek Now Streaming Exclusively On Paramount+

netflix removes star trek

| June 2, 2022 | By: TrekMovie.com Staff 55 comments so far

Star Trek’s transition away from being available on multiple streaming services will soon be complete with Deep Space Nine exiting Netflix at the end of June.

Trek’s Netflix decade ends

Netflix has revealed that all seven seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will be leaving the streaming service on July 1st. It was the last Star Trek series available on the streamer after TOS, Voyager and Enterprise left last September and TNG was removed in December . Subscribers can see the notification for the removal of DS9 when selecting the series.

This is an end of an era for Star Trek and Netflix. CBS (now Paramount Global) was an early adopter to licensing content to the streaming service, with all five live-action Star Trek shows joining Netflix in 2011. Late last year ViacomCBS also ended its co-production agreement for the original series Star Trek: Discovery , buying back the international distribution rights . However, as of now, the legacy Star Trek shows are still available internationally on Netflix.

netflix removes star trek

It’s all about Paramount+

Following the Netflix deal, CBS also licensed all legacy Star Trek shows to both Amazon Prime Video and Hulu in the USA. These licenses all remained even after the launch of CBS All Access (now Paramount+) in 2014, however, in January of this year, all Star Trek exited Hulu and Prime Video as well . So, as of July 1, Paramount+ will be the exclusive USA subscription streaming home for all the Star Trek television shows, both legacy shows, and the new original series. There is also a Star Trek channel on Pluto TV , the ad-supported live streaming service owned by Paramount.

This is all part of a stated goal for Paramount Global to move away from licensing to third parties and to keep their owned content on their own streaming services. This has become a trend among the big media companies in the USA. And while Star Trek content continues to be available internationally on Netflix and Prime Video in many markets, it is probable the global expansion of Paramount+ will follow the same pattern.

They are all still on H&I if you have Xfinity, from Sunday thru Friday.

Sad thing is that it is so edited down for commercials its barely watchable.

Ughhh I can hardly bear all the commercials on P+ but cannot afford to fish out more for the commercial-free service. It buffers a ton more than Netflix does, too, for some reason, so I can’t justify splurging $10 a month for it :(

It’s strange how in the streaming era people have just seemingly forgotten that you can purchase all these shows on disc or digital formats and not have to worry about buffering, ads or who has the rights to stream it at any give time. Personally I prefer the ownership model to the “lease the right to view” model.

But streaming is so much more convenient.

I dunno. To me, convenient is knowing just where I can go this week to find my favorite show(s)… and that they won’t disappear on me. Sometimes I like being old-fashioned.

Same here. I guess since I spent most of my life in an era where we collected physical copies of movies, music, etc. I don’t see it as an inconvenience. As Ambassador Sybok said; I know where it is at and I know it hasn’t been edited or altered by whomever may be in control of it at that moment in time.

I have the DVDs, but it’s still quicker to flip on the Roku.

I lean on physical media for when there are no other options, though

Exactly. And if I have to turn it off in the middle of an episode on one TV, I can put it back on another TV exactly where I left off.

Yea it’s hard to put a disc into the player 😉🤣 Life can’t always be simple my friend

A lot of my friends wait until the season is released on bluray or DVD. I do ok, financially, so I pay for the commercial free option of Par+. I also discovered that I could download eps on my tablet for offline play. This is very convenient as I travel a bit. I guess I could bring a DVD and play it on my laptop. I live in a smaller house. The space physical media takes up can be a bit annoying. I do like the Blu-Ray for a better picture and bonus features. Which are too sparse in my opinion.

I also prefer the blu rays (tng) . Also because the quality ist significantly better because of the higher bitrates

If only P+ would cough up the cash for a TNG level restoration…but apparently CBS digital sold off all their gear. I imagine the technology has advanced considerably to make the job more efficient since then though.

I just realized I only have seasons 4, 6 & 7 on DVD. My God, I can’t watch Eddington drive Sisko nuts whenever I want to anymore! (and I guess that has been the case for a few months, because we dropped Netflix early this year.)

The image quality so cuts into the show’s rewatchabiity. It’s like you have to watch the stream or the disc on the smallest possible monitor to not get distracted by how badly it is finished in SD.

Yea it’s about time for a HD restoration of DS9 & VOY

Only’ll cost a cool $25 Million or so.

What equipment did they sell? Who is handling the Voyager documentary clip restoration in that case?

I read in an interview awhile back that the CBS-Digital department dissolved and sold off their production equipment…computers, etc. Probably the film scanners too. No idea who was hired for the DS9 Doc. Maybe CBS Digital was rebranded. I’ll see if I can find the info.

The DS9 Doc folks did their own clean up/color correction with input from DS9 DP Jonathan West, and for their own purposes to match the rest of the documentary, they also chose to crop to 16:9.

Basically, what CBS did was pull the list of film reels the documentary crew wanted out of storage, scan the raw footage to hard drives and then check out those drives to the documentary crew. The documentary folks got the clips they wanted from the raw scans, and returned the assets to CBS.


I would assume the same process will happen for the VOY documentary. The only difference being CBS will outsource the scanning to whatever film scanning house they work with now.

Seems pretty shortsighted to me, given that there is a huge volume of properties remaining to be scanned.

Then again, CBS is kinda the extension of GulfWestern Paramount, which is the place that razed their Western St. set to make more parking spaces, essentially ensuring that anytime a Western (like, say, THE YOUNG RIDERS) came along it would have to take its business elsewhere, which I guess was probably a step in the direction of realism given Santa Clarita’s western set is really expansive. And of course they sold off pretty much all of Trumbull’s equipment after TMP — as if motion-control tech was going to be of not much use going forward, when it was bread-and-butter essentials for nearly two more decades in VFX.

CBS Digital (now called CBX VFX) had a number of different departments/specialties. In 2019 they renamed themselves to CBS VFX and they slimmed down their focus and got rid of their in-house film scanner, among other equipment. What that means is, like many other post-production companies, they would send out the film for scanning to a specialty house that does that. It’s quite common.

Something people may not know or may not remember is that CBS Digital’s focus was never restoration. They created a special group to do the remastering of TOS in 2006 and then kept the momentum going by doing TNG. Most of the people working on the Trek remastering were freelance and/or hired for a limited time based on the project. As soon as CBS chose not to continue remastering DS9 and VOY back in 2013 the special CBS Digital group was dissolved.

Thanks for this background!

What a weird ass cast photo. I’ve never seen that one before.

Based on the framing, lens choice and actor expressions, it looks like a shot of the Prophets speaking to somebody, but before they put that horrible colored filter (which I guess might be a post effect) over everything.

While typing that, I got a weird idea: what if Quark got to experience one of these Prophet visions? I’m imagining a story where he becomes entranced by ‘The Profits” rather than the profits.

I think it was from TV Guide.

Quark did have one of those Prophet visions. It was the one where the Prophets took away Zek’s greed, and Quark had to convince them to give it back.

It should have been used for SCI FI UNIVERSE’s DEEP AND CONFUSED issue!

‘The Visitor’ came up on DS9’s broadcast tonight. A reminder that this show had it’s moments of beauty, as well.

Too bad Paramount+ has the worst digital transfers of the lo for DS9. Interlaced and the closed captions info is visible up at the top of most of their files as a little black and white line.

All the classic shows also air on regular TV stations in my state.

Really? I haven’t seen ANY Trek listed on traditional TV stations in at least 15 years, though TOS does still turn up on one of those weird ‘300’ stations every week, the one that runs VOYAGE and TIME TUNNEL at weird hours of the morning.

Yep! I don’t recall what channel it is, but I frequently pass reruns of TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT. They do marathons of different shows on different days, and they have Trek running about 10 hours a day. I have the Blu-rays and DVDs of all the shows, but I still end up watching the reruns. :)

Classic Trek is shown on over the air digital sub-channel networks. These are available in most major markets. And are often carried on cable as well, since they’re sub-channels of a major network affiliate like the local CBS or Fox station. MeTV shows TOS on Saturday nights. H&I (MeTV’s cousin channel) has a block of TOS-ENT every weeknight starting at 8PM.

We get the best of both worlds here in Canada. All the Star Trek shows are on a television channel and a streaming service owned by the same company. And you don’t have to subscribe to both. Eventually I do see a long-term possibility of everything being transferred to Paramount plus Canada. But from what I can tell ,there’s a strong relationship between Bell media and Paramount.

Plus, with some of the current shows being shot in Canada, I would imagine that Paramount may want to continue that synergy that exists from working in Canada and maintaining a relationship with a Canadian media Outlet.

I’m curious about how long Paramount will renew exclusive licences to BellMedia for Canada.

Beyond using Pinewood Studios for Discovery making the relationship complex, I’m wondering if Paramount is keeping an eye in the regulatory situation in Canada.

While Paramount+ exists, much of CBS streaming content (and HBO’s) streams on BellMedia’s Crave which also produces Canadian content to meet regulatory requirements in line with cable licensing (e.g. Letterkenny).

BellMedia has been advocating in regulatory and Parliamentary hearings for Netflix and Amazon Prime to have to meet requirements for Canadian Content. Paramount may wish to see bow that falls out before pressing hard on moving everything to P+ as their Canadian distribution.

“Gold standard”

To each his/her own, of course, but I didn’t like DS9. Too much Klingon politics, too many Bajoran nuns and Ferengi popes.

Then why are you taking part in a DS9 discussion?

There’s no reason someone can’t take part in a DS9 discussion just because they don’t like it. Personally, I think DS9 was the best of the classic shows, but other opinions are welcome. There’s nothing wrong with disliking a show and commenting on it.

At a high level, true, but a lot of folks who decide to take a s**t on a particular show are doing it only to demonstrate their sphincter still works.

Sphincter or maw? Telling somebody to stop their jawing when they are dissing your fave is maybe slightly less rude, and just as accurate when it comes to gatekeeping.

Phil, this was mild statement from namanske.

While I get frustrated when this board seems to spin out into looping cycles if negativity, it seems reasonable to be able to point out that the narrative saying “DS9 was the best Trek ever!” doesn’t represent a universal view. The adamant position of the fans who love DS9 as the underdog series in the franchise can get a bit much.

I very much liked DS9, but can’t say it’s unequivocally the best ever. On its own, I don’t think that DS9 would have made me a fan of the franchise even if I think that there should be a similar series (Vanguard!!!) in this generation of new productions.

Our kids still can’t get into DS9 even if they still rewatch Voyager on their own.

My spouse is reluctant to invest the time in a rewatch of so many episodes, especially when it’s virtually unbearable to look at together on our OLED television.

So, I can take it that, while DS9 was a great product of its era, it’s not for everyone and the lack of remastering will continue to be a problem.

Oh, sorry, didn’t realize that TrekMovie was writing articles just for you. I’m so glad that you took the time to iterate to us why you, specifically , didn’t like a series.

I can sleep better tonight knowing a guy named “Navamske” doesn’t like DS9, it’s truly the panacea I need to rest soundly.

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion in this conversation, I’ll make sure that it’s notated in the minutes.

I agree with those who advocate purchasing the actual physical media – I have all my favorite Trek shows and certain seasons of others, select box sets, and all the films on DVD. That said, I do subscribe to P+ for the new stuff and some other shows like Twilight Zone, 1883 and their selection of movies isn’t bad, with some first-run titles. The TMP Directors Edition was a highlight. I subscribe to it as an Amazon Prime add-on, so the signal is pretty stable, but the service itself leaves much to be desired. Especially since I pay the $10/month for ‘Premium.” and they still show me ads…for their OWN shows?? The interface is clunky and remedial, and it’s a shame our favorite franchise is stuck behind this particular paywall.

Amazon and Apple plug their other shows with ads in front of their original programming. Are you seeing ads on anything besides originals though? That’s the only time I see them with the no ad version of P+.

Nope, just ads on their own originals, Ian. Which I find kind of silly because…I already have the service – I can see what they’re offering myself. Just annoying.

It should be skippable like the others do, then it wouldn’t be so big a deal. But the other fundamental ways the service is lacking compared to its competition are more egregious to me.

Sadly the quality of the picture and the subtitles is really bad on Paramount+. I recently cancelled Netflix but subscribe to Paramount+. With DS9, colors are muddier, there are strange video artifacts across the top, and the subtitles are often formatted wrong or even spelled wrong. Also, audio always seems lousy to me on Paramount through my Apple TV, even on new shows like Discovery and SNW.

why aren’t they calling the pilot “Emissary”?

Our family missed PICARD (no CBS access). Our family will miss DS9 (no Paramount +). We don’t care. There’s lots of other stuff to view.

The stories might be contemporary but the ancient video masters are not. I swear some of the season one episodes look like VHS. Where is the HD remaster?

I guess I’m in this case, lucky to live in The Netherlands where all the “classic” series (TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT) are still on Netflix these days… DSC was on Netflix but it was pulled off by CBS/Paramount+… PIC and LOW are still on Amazon Plus in Europe, but there is no change to watch DSC, Prodigy and SNW legally.. and that is sad!

Does anyone here knows, if all of the Star Trek series are coming to the P+ alternative, SkyShowTime?

looking back on these 90s promo photos of DS9 (and TNG, VOY, etc) the looks and staging of the actors is so strange….Kira and Sisko just look odd

Going to really miss watching it on Netflix. End of an era.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Picture: CBS / Paramount

As of April 1st, 2022 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was the last remaining Star Trek property on Netflix in the United States. That won’t be the case for long, though, as we now know the series is officially scheduled to leave the service in July 2022. 

Winner of four primetime Emmys, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is perhaps one of the most beloved Star Treks over the older generations. It ran between 1993 and 1999 across 7 seasons and a whopping 176 episodes.

ViacomCBS has been slowly reclaiming back the rights to its library of Star Trek titles which have been streaming on Netflix for close to a decade.

A quick timeline of the Star Trek dispersal from Netflix so far.

  • Star Trek: The Animated Series was removed from Netflix in December 2019
  • Star Trek was removed from Netflix in October 2021
  • Star Trek: Voyager was removed from Netflix in October 2021
  • Star Trek: Enterprise was removed from Netflix in October 2021
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation leaving Netflix in April 2022 .

Almost all of these series were all licensed to Netflix in the US first in July 2011. This means that you’ve had well over a decade to stream most of these shows. For most of these shows, it was the first time these titles had ever appeared on a streaming service.

Will Star Trek: Deep Space Nine leave Netflix?

Now predicting a removal date for Deep Space Nine isn’t easy as we don’t know exactly when the shows were renewed.

Unogs seemed to suggest it was last renewed in the middle of July while another provider seems to suggest it was renewed on January 1st, 2017. The second provider seemed to have lined up with The Next Generation removal so our best guess at the moment is that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine gets removed on January 1st, 2023 but it could easily be removed sooner.

Now, however, we know that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will be departing Netflix on July 2nd, 2022.

All of these removals of classic Trek have all affected Netflix US with international regions of Netflix managing to keep all of the above series (with the exception of The Animated Series) so far. With that said, with Paramount+ rolling out across the globe, those rights will inevitably expire. The most notable signal of that happening was with Paramount buying back the rights to Star Trek: Discovery resulting in season 4 not coming to Netflix and seasons 1-3 removed .

You can catch all the July 2022 removals here.

Will you be rewatching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine before it expires? Let us know in the comments.

'Star Trek: Discovery' leaves Netflix just ahead of its new season

International fans will have to wait for paramount+ to be available in their countries next year..

The fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery was supposed to be available on Netflix a day after it premieres on Paramount+ in the US on November 18th, but that will no longer happen. In fact, fans outside the US and Canada will have to wait months to be able to see the new episodes — legally, that is — if they ever get the chance at all. According to Deadline , ViacomCBS has ended its deal with Netflix that had been in place since the series launched in 2017.

The publication says the money Netflix paid for the show's overseas rights paid for most of Discovery's hefty budget. Now that ViacomCBS has paid off the deal, it also pulled the entire show from Netflix. Apparently, it plans make the series available again to international fans in 2022 when Paramount+ goes global. The UK, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Switzerland will be among the first regions to get access to the streaming service next year. By the end of 2022, the service will be out in 45 countries, but as Gizmodo points out, that's still a tiny fraction of the 190 regions where Netflix is available.

Kelly Day, ViacomCBS Networks International streaming boss, told Deadline :

"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."

In a tweet, the show's official account said that the fourth season will still premiere on Paramount+ on November 18th in the US. Meanwhile, it will arrive on CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada on the same day and will be available for streaming in the country on Crave the day after.

Star Trek fans rage as Netflix removes Discovery two days before season 4 begins

The hit sci-fi show has been removed from Netflix around the world and will now only air via Paramount plus – a streaming service that only exists inside the USA

netflix removes star trek

Star Trek fans have been left raging after Netflix removed Discovery from their streaming service around the world two days before the hotly anticipated fourth season was about to air.

For weeks, Star Trek fans have been getting hyped about the upcoming fourth season – which will see the crew of the USS Discovery investigating a galaxy-wide phenomenon that disrupts gravity and causes destruction.

And while the makers of the show have been gleefully teasing fans with a countdown to the new season, disaster has struck for millions of fans as bosses have forced Netflix to remove the show from their service.

The brains behind Star Trek are making the show only available via Paramount Plus – a streaming service that currently only exists inside the USA.

While Discovery normally airs in the USA via Paramount + and then streams elsewhere in the world via Netflix the following day, fans will now have to wait until an unspecified date in 2022 for the show to be available when the Paramount Plus service becomes available outside the USA.

Deadline reported details of the move, writing: “In a just-closed deal between ViacomCBS and Netflix, the Shari Redstone-controlled company has ended the lucrative financial arrangement that launched Discovery back in 2017.

“In broad strokes, the bargain that then-CBS head honcho Les Moonves made with Netflix saw the latter paying the vast majority of Discovery‘s hefty budget for the overseas rights.

“With the top-tier IP fully back in the fold, the plan is for Discovery to take flight on Paramount+ around the globe starting next year.”

Seasons one to three of Discovery have also been removed from Netflix – with the bombshell being announced only yesterday and coming into effect today.

Fans of the series have taken to social media to blast the decision and collectively shake their bat'leth’s, sounding more enraged than a dinner deprived Klingon targ.

One fan raged via Twitter : “Well. This is stupid. Instead of doing the logical thing of removing Star Trek Discovery after Paramount Plus launches overseas, they remove it while it is unavailable overseas from a streaming platform almost everyone has. Guess there is a first for Trek then.”

Another blasted: “Why couldn’t this of been announced with a little more notice? Absolutely gutted!!”

Others feared this is the beginning of all versions of Star Trek being removed from streaming services – as The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise and The Original Series all also air on Netflix, while Picard and Lower Decks stream via Amazon.

One fan tweeted: “Didn’t they say they were pulling all Star Trek series from Netflix? Without having an alternative in place to watch these series outside the US, the is a very silly move for the health of the franchise @paramountplus @StarTrek Fans have long memories.”

While others have vowed to illegally stream Discovery season four and refuse to sign up to “yer another streaming service” when Paramount + expands beyond the USA next year.

One incensed fan wrote on Instagram : “This is ridiculous – literally pushing people to stream it illegally.”

The cast of Discovery seem equally gutted – with show star Emily Coutts, who plays Keyla Detmer, taking to Twitter in the aftermath of the show’s news to write: “to all of our international fans, we love you,” alongside a red heart emoji.

Viewers in Canada will also still be able to watch the show via on CTV Sci Fi / Crave.

Star Trek Discovery season four airs in the USA and Canada only from November 18.
