‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 3 Release Date Revealed

 In State

 We didn’t get a new trail­er for Season 3 of “Star Trek: Discovery” at this year's Comic-Con@Home event — in fact, we’ve only seen the teaser trail­er that showed at last year’s New York Comic Con. It seems a trifle odd that CBS passed on the oppor­tu­ni­ty given it lit­er­al­ly had a cap­tive audi­ence for the Star Trek Universe panel, so fin­gers crossed we’ll get one soon and no doubt it will catch every­one by sur­prise and then short­ly after cause the inter­net to explode. 

However, just a day after Comic-Con@Home ended, CBS did give con­firm the 13-episode Season 3 pre­miere date, which will be Oct. 15, on CBS All Access.

And, sci-fi fans, from October onwards, we can expect a lot of qual­i­ty TV, as the second season of “The Mandalorian” also airs in October and while the exact date hasn’t been con­firmed by Disney Plus, one rumor sug­gests that it might be as soon as Oct. 7. It’s not yet known how many episodes will be in Season 2.
