If you’re a fan of the Star Trek franchise, you may be wondering if there’s a new movie in the works. After all, the last Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, was released back in 2016, and it’s been quite some time since we’ve heard any news about a new installment.
So, are they coming out with a new Star Trek movie? Let’s take a look.
Rumors and Speculation
Over the past few years, there have been plenty of rumors and speculation surrounding the next Star Trek film. At one point, it was reported that Quentin Tarantino would be directing a new Star Trek movie, but that project seems to have been put on hold indefinitely.
There have also been rumors that Noah Hawley (known for his work on Fargo and Legion) would be taking over the reins for the next Star Trek film. However, as of now, there has been no official confirmation from Paramount Pictures (the studio behind the franchise) about who will be directing or when we can expect to see a new movie.
The State of the Franchise
So where does that leave us? While it’s true that there hasn’t been any official word on a new Star Trek movie, that doesn’t mean that the franchise is dead. In fact, there are plenty of other projects in the works that should keep fans of the series excited.
For example, CBS All Access (the streaming service behind Star Trek: Discovery) has announced several other Star Trek shows in development. These include:
- Star Trek: Picard – A spinoff series featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard
- Star Trek: Lower Decks – An animated comedy series set on a less important starship within the Federation
- Section 31 – A spinoff series featuring Michelle Yeoh’s character from Star Trek: Discovery
What We Can Expect
While we don’t know when the next Star Trek movie will be released, it’s safe to say that there are still plenty of stories to be told within the franchise. With multiple TV shows in development, it’s clear that CBS and Paramount are committed to keeping Star Trek alive for years to come.
So, are they coming out with a new Star Trek movie? The answer is still unclear, but that doesn’t mean fans should lose hope. In the meantime, there’s plenty of other content to look forward to within the Star Trek universe.
