Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp shared heartfelt posts on social media.

Live long and prosper.

The LGBTQ-inclusive Paramount+ series Star Trek: Discovery is coming to an end with the series’ fifth and final season, which is scheduled to premiere in 2024. With out gay actors like Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp in the cast, this was a fan-favorite show among queer audiences and Star Trek fanatics alike.

Cruz reacted to the final season announcement of Star Trek: Discovery with a post on Twitter:

“All I feel, right now, is GRATITUDE, for this opportunity and for all of you who have stood with us. I love Hugh Culber. It’s been an honor, a privilege to be him and to have shared the stage with these incredible people. I am a better person, friend & actor. #StarTrekDiscovery.”

Rapp also tweeted a heartfelt message:

“It has been the privilege of a lifetime to join the #StarTrek universe. Thank you to all of you who’ve welcomed us into your hearts. To say that I will miss working with my incredible Disco family is a profound understatement. They’ve made my world better in every way.”

With Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: Picard is also coming to an end with its third and final season airing in 2023. However, producers have already expressed their desire to continue this story with a spinoff series. For Discovery, the jury is still out on whether Paramount+ will greenlight spinoffs.

We’ve always loved how inclusive the Star Trek universe has been for LGBTQ+ actors and characters, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this amazing franchise.

The first four seasons of Star Trek: Discovery are streaming on Paramount+.
