Now that Comic-Con at Home is now over and the Star Trek Universe virtual panel was a success. CBS announced that the third season of Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on October 15, 2020 on CBS All-Access. The announcement was made with a 15 second video of Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) planting a tattered Federation flag on an unknown, barren planet. 

At the end of season two, Burnham and Discovery were hurled far into the future by way of a wormhole. At last year’s Star Trek Universe panel at SDCC, we learned how far ahead they went – 1000 years. We also learned that Discovery did not land on Terralysium and the other side of the wormhole is not what we think. It’s “complicated.” Now living in a time filled with uncertainty, the U.S.S. Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must together fight to regain a hopeful future and repair the Federation.

With Star Trek: Lower Decks premiering August 6th and Star Trek: Discovery in October, fans will have new Star Trek episodes for the rest of the year. We can only hope that production can pick soon for the new series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds with Spock, Pike and Number One  and the second season of Star Trek: Picard. Also in development is Michelle Yeoh’s Section 31 series and Nickelodean’s Star Trek: Prodigy. That’s a lot of Star Trek, folks and we are here for it. 

Catch up on all the latest Star Trek announcements made at last week’s SDCC with our Star Trek Universe panel coverage, here. Plus, check out last fall’s NYCC highlights which gave us great Star Trek: Discovery season three details including new cast members and a teaser, here. 

 

After making the jump in the second season finale, season three of “Star Trek: Discovery” finds the U.S.S. Discovery crew dropping out of the wormhole and into an unknown future far from the home they once knew. Now living in a time filled with uncertainty, the U.S.S. Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must together fight to regain a hopeful future.
