Among the highlights in the weeks ahead are the special Art Happens Here with John Lithgow, the third season of Guilt, the series premiere of Mr. Bates vs. the Post Office, and new specials for Frontline and Nova throughout the month.

What’s new on Paramount+ in April 2024
The cast of Star Trek: Discovery.

Back when Paramount+ was still known as CBS All Access, the streaming service debuted Star Trek: Discovery and kicked off a new era for the franchise which led to multiple Star Trek series running simultaneously. That's why it's significant that the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery is coming to Paramount+ in April. The season premiere of Discovery will beam down on April 4, with new episodes following weekly until the series finale.

Sonic the Hedgehog fans will likely want to follow Idris Elba's Knuckles in his own series on Paramount+ on April 26. Meanwhile, younger viewers can enjoy the return of Dora the Explorer in a new series, Dora on April 12. Classic rock lovers are also in for a treat on April 14, as Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden will stream the iconic singer's 100th concert at the venue.
