Energize! The third season of Star Trek: Discovery has set a date to beam down to CBS All Access. New episodes from the 13-episode third season will be available on the streamer weekly on Thursdays starting on October 15.
The premiere date for season 3 was unveiled with a video of Commander Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) planting a tattered Federation flag on a desolate planet — which seems to be picking up right where season 2 left off. If you remember from the season finale, Burnham traveled into a wormhole. Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery finds the U.S.S. Discovery crew landing 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 work together to restore hope to the Federation… that storyline is mirroring reality a little too much.
The news of the season 3 premiere date comes after Comic-Con@Home where the cast of Star Trek: Discovery treated fans to a table read of the first act of the season 2 finale.
With the news season of Star Trek: Discovery on the horizon and the upcoming August 6 premiere of Star Trek: Lower Decks, CBS All Access has no shortage of Star Trek content as they will have 23 weeks of new Star Trek for the fans to devour.
