The third season of “Star Trek: Discovery” takes place in the distant future, but is no longer in it. The U.S. launch has been officially announced. The first teaser trailers, plans and everything else worth knowing about “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 3, we summarize here on GIGA for you.
Star Trek: Discovery: Season 3 has a launch date
As the US broadcaster CBS announced, it will be from October 15, 2020 in the U.S. to continue with the third season of “Star Trek: Discovery”. In Germany, Netflix has broadcast the first two seasons. The consequences were always to be seen here one day after the US premiere.
Netflix has not yet commented on the launch of “Star Trek: Discovery” season 3. If the previous rhythm is kept, we should in this country from October 16, 2020 enjoy the new episodes. The total of 13 episodes of the third season are to be broadcast weekly (as before).
Season 3 is set in an unknown future
As you can see in the first teaser trailer, the time jump of the second season finale remains. The crew escapes through the wormhole with the U.S.S. Discovery and is now 930 years in the future – in the 32nd century. A time that “Star Trek” has not yet addressed more strongly and thus offers freedom for new developments, techniques and species. Judging by the trailer, it is also a future in which Starfleet no longer exists or is only viewed as a myth, fairy tale or legend.
“Star Trek: Discovery” Season 3 starts in 2020 – in this country, the new episodes should be seen again shortly after the US premiere on Netflix.
“Star Trek: Discovery”: Season 3 officially announced
In the middle of the second season, CBS announced that there will be a third season. Screenwriter Michelle Paradise (The Originals, Rogue), who has already been involved in several episodes of the current season, is to co-showrunner alongside Alex Kurtzman.

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 plans have been around for a while
At the end of January 2019, showrunner Alex Kurtzman already admitted at the Television Critics Association’s CBS presentation that he had been making plans for season 3 for a long time. As the colleagues from Den of Geek report, the showrunner says about the future of the series:
“We have already started thinking about season three […] We’re currently editing season two finale. I can’t wait for you to see it. We are really proud of it. We have many great ideas that we have been working on for a long time. You have to start thinking about season three while you’re still in the middle of season two. That’s how I do it at least for television productions. “
