The announcement all Star Trek fans have been waiting for has arrived: the exact date that Star Trek Discovery Season 3 begins to stream on C.B.S. All Access, along with the official synopsis.
The third series of Discovery will begin streaming on the 15th October in the United States on the previously mentioned C.B.S. streaming service, and although there is yet to be any announcement of where and when UK viewers can watch the new instalments, it is worth remembering that during series two’s run, Netflix UK typically got the latest episode one day after it streamed in the States, so it is highly likely it will arrive there on the 16th of October.
Considering its premiere is still more than two months away, there is plenty of time for an announcement as to where UK members of the Federation can view this wonderful ongoing saga of Michael Burnham, Tilly, Saru, Hugh, and the rest of the Discovery crew.
Although it does not tell us anything that this blog did not cover in a previous article on Discovery‘s third series, the synopsis does confirm (or reinforce) some of what was previously suggested.
After making the jump in the second season finale, Star Trek Discovery Season 3 finds the USS 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 USS Discovery crew – along with the help of some new friends – must fight together to regain a hopeful future.
The 13 upcoming episodes will feature most of the regular U.S.S. Discovery crewmates you have come to know and love, as well as newcomers like Cleveland ‘Book’ Booker, played by actor David Ajala.
We will not be seeing Spock or Captain Christopher Pike returning, as they are stuck in the past and also have their own upcoming adventures to pursue when Star Trek Strange New Worlds goes into production. Like many television series and films, this has been delayed temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they will be back in their own series sooner rather than later.
Thankfully, all of the studio and location work for Star Trek Discovery Season 3 was in the can before the pandemic caused disruption, and the remaining post-production work was completed remotely, or with appropriate social distancing measures.
Meanwhile, we will have Star Trek Lower Decks to tide us over until Discovery makes it way back into our galaxy, which will begin streaming on the 6th August. As said above, this will most likely be available for UK Star Trek fans to enjoy one day later – the 7th August.
