I haven't started a new thread in a while. But here's one. How many seasons do you think Discovery will ultimately end up with? I think it'll run seven seasons and have 90-something episodes. My rationale is that they want to fill up the year first. By the time this happens, Picard will be in its third season. If PIC ends after three seasons, another show will take its place. More specifically, a spin-off series set in the 25th Century. Which means Discovery will still have its slot at least through its sixth season because the sixth season of DSC would be the same year as the first season of Picard's spin-off. And if you go six, you might as well go seven. Then CBS All Access can say Discovery, their first Star Trek series, ran the distance and went the "full" seven seasons. I think anything less than seven, because DSC was the first, would be perceived negatively and they don't want to do that.
