New Star Trek: Discovery Trailer Arrives, And The Future Looks Bleak

Get a look at what's coming up for the Discovery crew for Season 3 on CBS All Access.


The next season of CBS All Access's Star Trek: Discovery is right around the corner. Season 3 will hit the streaming service on Thursday, October 15. Today, during a Star Trek Day panel, a new trailer was revealed for the show.

If you've been keeping up with the series, you're well-aware that Season 3 is going to bring the crew of the USS Discovery somewhere completely new: the future. However, the galaxy isn't a happy-go-lucky place where everyone is friends. It's a bit of a dystopia from the looks of the new trailer, which you can check out below.

"After following Commander Burnham into the wormhole in the second season finale, Season 3 of Star Trek: Discover finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery landing in an unknown future far from the home they once knew," reads the official synopsis. "Now living in a time filled with uncertainty, the U.S.S. Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must work together to restore hope to the Federation."

Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 cast:

  • Sonequa Martin-Green as Commander Michael Burnham
  • Doug Jones as Commander Saru
  • Anthony Rapp as Lt. Commander Paul Stamets
  • Mary Wiseman as Ensign Sylvia Tilly
  • Wilson Cruz as Dr. Hugh Culber
  • David Ajala as Cleveland “Book” Booker
  • Blu del Barrio as Adira
  • Ian Alexander as Gray
  • Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou

When new episodes of Season 3 arrives, it won't be all at once. The first episode premieres on October 15, and new episodes will air weekly, on Thursdays. Season 3 will consist of 13 episodes.
