'Star Trek Discovery' Season 3: New Trailer Reveals Release Date

Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 is coming soon to CBS All Access, 18 months after the last season aired.

A trailer was released for the new series in July, which sees Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) plating the Federation flag on a new planet–the planet that the crew has ended up on after going through a wormhole in the previous season.

CBS All Access will air episodes of Star Trek: Discovery first, with Netflix expected to release them the following day internationally.

Season 3 of the series was previously teased in a trailer released in 2019, which saw Burnham and the rest of the crew flung 930 years into the future, into a world where Starfleet and the Federation may no longer exist.
