Star Trek fans are always eager for more Star Trek, and as of April 20th, anyone with an internet connection will be able to view one of the franchise’s most acclaimed installments for free, even without a Paramount+ membership. Others who aren’t paying monthly will be pleased to learn that they can stream Mysterious New Worlds’ Season 1 for free before the June premiere of Season 2.
Pluto TV has been an excellent destination for Star Trek fans thanks to its franchise-centric channels, and soon, the ad-based streaming site will be a new home for Season 1 of Strange New Worlds. According to Deadline, Strange New Worlds will be among several different Paramount+ shows temporarily added to Pluto TV before their new seasons. For 30 days, viewers can watch the first season of Strange New Worlds and other performances in primetime via the Paramount+ Picks channel.
In addition, Pluto TV will also be streaming the Season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds for anyone still on the fence about subscribing even after seeing Season 1. However, the premiere will only be on the service for a week, so anyone who wants to watch Season 2 will need to download Paramount+ eventually to continue watching the much-anticipated season.
Paramount+ may be trying to draw more eyes to Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which earned near-universal acclaim from critics and audiences in its inaugural season. The cast hasn’t been quiet about how Season 2 will even outdo the high bar the series set in Season 1, which is quite a statement to make.
With that said, it’s not hard to believe the series will rise to the occasion in terms of quality, given what we know about the season so far. Paul Wesley will reprise his role of Captain Kirk for more Spock bonding and other adventures. The series will do a crossover episode with the animated comedy Lower Decks.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is already confirmed for Season 3, which is reportedly in the works, making it one of the best shows for Paramount+ execs to use as bait for potential subscribers via Pluto TV. Because anyone who makes a move to check the service out will no doubt find reasons to stick around, whether it’s for all the other ve a chance to check out all the other Trek shows on the platform or maybe even stick around for the upcoming Star Trek shows on the way.
And if Star Trek wasn’t enough, Strange New Worlds won’t be the only Paramount+ show airing on Pluto TV beginning on April 20th, as others listed below will also have their initial streaming seasons available for viewing.
Those who tune in can expect Paramount+ episodes of Mike Judge’s Beavis & Butt-Head, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, iCarly, Queen of the Universe, and Joe Pickett. In short, the next month should be a great time to tune into Pluto TV if you’re looking for some great shows for free.
- Mike Judge’s Beavis & Butt-Head

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 will premiere on Paramount+ on Thursday, June 15th. We don’t have any trailers for the upcoming season yet, but with this exciting news from Pluto TV, one must imagine the first footage will arrive in the coming weeks.
