With season one Star Trek: Picard ending earlier this year and the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks yet to premiere, we’ve been in a bit of a Star Trek drought the past few months. Until now the premiere date for the next season Star Trek: Discovery has only been a vague “2020,” but we finally have a release date for season three.
Beyond the crew of the Discovery being stranded in the far future (a huge plot twist that we were the first to report last season) and being tasked with rebuilding the United Federation of Planets, not much is known about season three of Star Trek: Discovery. Most viewers agree that Season 2 was a vast improvement over Season 1, many will feel the absence of the Enterprise crew – namely Ethan Peck’s Spock, Anson Mount’s Captain Pike, and Rebecca Romijn’s Number One – who brought a lot to the proceedings and have now been spun off into their own series, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Series regulars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, and Wilson Cruz return for season three and are joined by newcomer David Ajala. Guest stars Tig Notaro and Michelle Yeoh will also reportedly appear. Take a look at the trailer below for a glimpse of what’s in store for the crew in Star Trek: Discovery season 3.
