J.J. Abrams successfully breathed new life into the then-stagnating sci-fi franchise following several disappointing outings.
Unfortunately, things hit a bit of a snag since then, sending Abrams' films into a tailspin.
But, as it turns out, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek series will continue to live on with a fourth film slated to kick off production in late 2022.
In a recent investor call, Paramount confirmed that J.J. Abrams is back at the helm as the producer with Matt Shakman directing.
The studio is also talking to the original cast, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Simon Pegg, to see if they would like to return.
It will be interesting to see how fans will respond to a fourth Star Trek film featuring Pine and the rest of the crew.
Star Trek 4 could start production in late 2022, but it also couldn't and it might not even premiere until 2024 if not 2025.
Here's to hoping that we'll hear more about Star Trek 4 soon and it will be good news.
