Star Trek: Discovery season 3 launch date confirmed as Burnham and crew head to the future

Star Trek: Discovery has finally been given a return date – and Commander Burnham and co are about to conquer a brave new world. 

The adored fantasy series dropped a brand new trailer revealing Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) planting a Federation flag down on an unknown planet. 

The teaser then confirmed the 13-episode season will be launching from 15 October, airing every Thursday on CBS All Access in the US. 

There’s a lot of exploring to do with the crew of the USS Discovery, seeing as the season two finale saw them sucked through a wormhole into the future. 

Recruiting some new friends in this mystery land, the team now need to restore faith to the Federation – which judging by the state of the battered flag Burnham is waving, will be a little harder than it sounds. 

Star Trek have been engaging their systems into overdrive of late, despite the lockdown putting restrictions on their ability to film. 

Thankfully, there’s a way around everything – and the Star Trek team have now announced a huge slate of Star Trek shows to expand the universe further than fans could have dreamed. 

On top of Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks will launch on 6 August, bringing more tales from the space travellers. 

A second season of Picard is on the way, but is yet to start filming. 

Another spin-off of the franchise, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, is also in development, and will see the return of actors Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck. 

Star Trek: Prodigy, an animated series for Nickelodeon, has also been confirmed to be in production. 

Star Trek: Discovery season 3 launches 15 October on CBS All Access and Netflix.
