STAR TREK: DISCOVERY SEASON THREE Everything We know So Far

It's our continually updating round-up of all the information we have so far about season three of Star Trek: Discovery.


Season three of Star Trek: Discovery is currently in production. This page is dedicated to everything we know so far. Anything that is fact will be presented in regular type, anything that's rumoured but looking likely will be written in italics. You'll find links throughout to original/external news stories and articles containing further information, where available.

You may want to bookmark this page and check back often as we'll keep updating it with all the new information for season three Star Trek: Discovery as and when we get it, right up to when the show airs.

Be warned there could be potential SPOILERS throughout.

So without further ado, let's get on with it.

Release Date
Airing on the CBS All Access web service in the USA, and around the world on Netflix, season two of Star Trek: Discovery finished in April 2019. Although it was announced on February 27th 2019 that the show had been renewed for a third season, CBS have not confirmed exactly when it will be broadcast, only that it will be "later next year". Presumably after the first season of Picard has aired.


Cast
  • Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham
  • Doug Jones as Saru
  • Mary Wiseman as Sylvia Tilly
  • Wilson Cruz as Dr Hugh Culber
  • Sara Milch as Nilsson
  • Patrick Kwok-Choon as Gen Rhys
  • Anthony Rapp as Paul Stamets
  • Rachael Ancheril as Nhan
  • Emily Coutts as Keyla Detmer
During the 2019 SDCC panel, Star Trek Discovery co-creator Alex Kurtzman revealed that David Ajala will play the role of a new character named Cleveland Booker, or Book.

It's unknown at this time if Michelle Yeoh will reprise her recurring role of Philippa Georgiou as she will be heading up her own Star Trek show titled Section 31, but as the spin-off will reportedly start filming after Discovery it's most likely she will be back, even if only for a handful of episodes to set-up the spin-off.

On March 18th 2019, it was announced that season two regular Anson Mount (Christopher Pike) and guest star Rebecca Romijn (Number One) would not be returning for season three.

Essentially, we expect to see everyone who was on-board Discovery as it made its leap into the future at the end of series two. So presumably no Shazad Latif as Ash Tyler, and no return for, series two regular, Ethan Peck as Spock.

Producers
Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise are now co-showrunners, the third change in three years.

Gretchen J Berg and Aaron Harberts were working under Bryan Fuller for the first season, before replacing him as showrunners. They then they made way for Kurtzman and Paradise.

Kurtzman explained,
Michelle [Paradise] joined us midway through season two and energised the room with her ferocious knowledge of Trek. Her grasp of character and story detail, her drive and her focus have already become essential in ensuring the Trek legacy, and her fresh perspective always keeps us looking forward. I'm proud to say Michelle and I are officially running Star Trek: Discovery together.
Writers
No individual writers have been confirmed as yet by showrunners Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise/

Directors
Peter Mihaichuk is behind the camera for episode one of season three of Star Trek Discovery.

Jonathan Frakes confirmed he will direct two episodes. Thought to be episode three and one other episode.

Filming
It was revealed at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con that Discovery season three began shooting in Iceland in early July.


Premise
Both seasons of Discovery have had an overarching theme spread across their episodes. The first being Lorca and the Mirror Universe, the second being the search for Spock (great name for a movie) and the red angel signs, so we should expect a series of semi-contained adventures connected by a larger storyline.

Discussing the plot, Alex Kurtzman teased that season three will be exploring new depths for a Trek series.
Obviously we made a pretty radical jump into the future at the end of season two – we're going almost 1,000 years into the future in season three, which is crazy, further than any Trek series has ever gone before.
However, Kurtzman clarified that although there will be changes, the show will stay true to its roots,
Every conversation about how we create Star Trek is filtered through [Gene] Roddenberry's essential vision of optimism, which can never really change because it is the spirit and soul of Trek for all of us. It's more important than ever.

So there will be lots and lots of huge changes in season three – there will be things you recognise, there will be things you don't recognise... part of the fun of it is that we get to honour canon but shake it up hugely.

There are no trailers for Discovery Season Three at this time.
