Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Delayed as Coronavirus Slows Post-Production

While principal photography on Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 may have wrapped, the production is running into unforeseen delays due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In an Instagram story, series star Wilson Cruz noted that post-production had run into delays due to the global health crisis. He later clarified through Twitter that, while delayed, Season 3 will still be released on CBS All Access at a currently unannounced date.

Season 2 ended with the U.S.S. Discovery and its crew transported 930 years into the future -- further ahead in the timeline than any previous Star Trek film or television series -- as the characters found themselves in a universe beyond the existence of the United Federation and Starfleet.
