Background information[]

  • It was revealed on 23 July 2022 at San Diego Comic Con 2022 that Strange New Worlds Season 2 will have a crossover episode that will feature characters from Star Trek: Lower Decks. [1]
  • On 19 April 2023, Paramount+ launched a season two teaser trailer, which featured the 2003 song "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service. [2] A second season two trailer without the song was released on 24 May 2023, but did feature the two Lower Decks crossover characters, Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler. [3]
  • In 2023, it was announced that as of 1 August 2023, the streaming rights for Star Trek were to be rescinded for CraveTV with the temporary exception of Strange New worlds, still streaming its second season at the time of the announcement. A little over a month later however, on 9 September 2023, it was removed from the service as well after all. It left Crave entirely devoid of Star Trek on top of making the series truly a Paramount+ exclusive, as the Canadian platform had been the only one anywhere in the world, besides Paramount+/SkyShowtime, to stream the series. [4][5].

Reception[]

In 2023 the rating agency Nielsen started recording ratings for original streaming programming, with resulted in that both Star Trek: Picard and Strange New Worlds have made the Top-10 (Original Programs) Streaming Chart since then. After season two debuted, Strange New Worlds has managed to occupy Nielsens original streaming top-ten listing for nine straight weeks in a row, with a seventh spot as it highest ranking. during its inaugural streaming run. [6] It must be understood that the Nielsen streaming rating are not based on (individual) season two (episode) views alone as is commonly, but mistakenly, believed by a substantial part of the US populace, reviewers included, but on those of the show in question in its entirety, thus in this particular case including episodes from the first season as well – an understandable misconception though, as traditional broadcast Nielsen ratings are based on individual television production viewings.
