Star Trek Discovery Season 3’s premiere date has been announced and it’s coming in just a few months.
CBS announced Monday that the third season of the CBS All Access-exclusive Star Trek show will premiere on Thursday, October 15. The season will consist of 13 episodes released weekly on the streaming service in the United States. As for what to expect, the Discovery crew is heading, “into an unknown future far from the home they once knew,” as stated in a press release.
If you’ve seen the Season 2 finale, you likely know what is being alluded to there. The cast sees the return of show mainstays like Sonequa Martin-Green in the role of Commander Michael Burnham, Doug Jones as Commander Saru, Anthony App as Lt. Commander Paul Stamets, Mary Wiseman as Ensign Sylvia Tilly, Wilson Cruz as Dr. Hugh Culber, David Ajala as Cleveland ‘Book’ Booker, and Michelle Yeoh as Phillipa Georgiou.
With Season 3 not starting for a few months, there’s plenty of time to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2. Both are available to stream in full on CBS All Access and it’s also available on Netflix in nearly 200 countries. There’s also Star Trek: Picard to check out on the service in the meantime as well.

Lower Decks will be more of a comedy than its fellow Star Trek series’ and Prodigy will be a CG-animated show aimed at younger audiences.
