Star Trek: Discovery season 3 to hit Netflix in October
The first episode will debut on 16th October 2020.
Netflix has confirmed the premiere date for the upcoming third season of Star Trek: Discovery.
The first episode will be available to stream from 16th October, just 24 hours after its aired in the US. Subsequent episodes will then arrive every Friday for the next 12 weeks.
Star Trek: Discovery, which is the first TV series in the franchise after 2005’s poorly received Star Trek: Enterprise, follows Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) former Starfleet officer turned Captain of the titular ship.
The end of its last season saw the U.S.S Discovery travel 900 years into the future through a wormhole in a bid to stop an artificial intelligence from destroying the universe.
“Season 3 finds the U.S.S. Discovery crew landing into an unknown future far from the home they once knew” reads the plot synopsis.
“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.”
Along with Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz and Michelle Yeoh are all set to return.
Set to join the cast for season three is Supergirl’s David Ajala as well as Blu Del Barrio and Ian Alexander as the franchise’s first regular non-binary and transgender characters respectively.
You can stream both seasons of Star Trek: Discovery on Netflix now.
