The release of Star Trek: Discovery season 5 was postponed to early 2024 despite wrapping up filming in November 2022, as Paramount wants to end the show "in style." Last year, a first-look trailer for the film revealed that the team is searching for an "old power" whose presence has been kept secret for millennia.

Director of Content Licensing for Amazon Video India, said in a prepared statement that a selected selection of Paramount Worldwide material is now available for streaming to Prime subscribers in India at no additional cost. The lineup features a diverse range of genres, from drama and sci-fi to fantasy and adventure, all with top-notch casts.
