On Monday, during the First Contact Day virtual event, Paramount+ revealed that Star Trek: Lower Decks will return for Season 2 on Thursday, August 12.
Developed and created by Emmy winner Mike McMahan, Star Trek: Lower Decks shines a light on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380.
