Episode 8 of Season 4, titled "All In," will be available from Thursday, February 10 on Paramount+. Episodes are set to be aired at 3 a.m. ET.

The episode synopsis for this first episode reads: "Following a hunch, Captain Burnham [Sonequa Martin-Green] tracks Book [David Ajala] to an old haunt from their courier days and gets drawn into a high-stakes competition for a powerful weapon."

After that, the remaining episodes will air every Thursday at the same time. Per showrunner Michelle Paradise in a TV Guide interview, Season 4 will have 13 episodes, meaning viewers have six more episodes to look forward to. This means that the remaining episodes will air on the following dates:

  • Episode 9: February 17
  • Episode 10: February 24
  • Episode 11: March 3
  • Episode 12: March 10

For those final three weeks, the show will intersect with Picard Season 2, which kicks off March 3.

Does Paramount+ have a free trial?

The season finale set up many potential new plot points. One of the biggest came towards its end, when Tarka (Shawn Doyle) mentioned an alternate, more peaceful universe, which could be suggesting that Discovery is not done when it comes to exploring new worlds. And, with the Spore Drive that he presented in the episode, he can now travel anywhere in the galaxy in an instant, re-opening up the show's world.

After the mid-season finale, there was a trailer for the next six episodes that also featured plenty of clues as to what to expect. Among them was a glimpse of Nhan (Rachael Ancheril) in a Starfleet uniform, suggesting her time on board the seed vault ship is at an end. The promo also briefly featured a shot of Tilly (Mary Wiseman) at a damaged Federation HQ. Exactly what she's doing there is sure to be revealed in the coming episodes.
