Paramount+ has made an announcement. Season 3 of Star Trek: Lower Decks will premiere this summer, and Season 4 has already been ordered. The show takes place in the Star Trek world in the year 2380.
Lower Decks covers the USS Cerritos’ support crew (thus the title), following the lives of Becket Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Brad Boilmer (Jack Quaid), Tendi (Nol Wells), and Rutherford (Tawny Newsome) (Eugene Cordero).
Star Trek: Lower Decks has been renewed for Season 4 by Paramount+, ahead of the Season 3 release in May. Season 4 of Star Trek: Lower Decks will consist of ten episodes, similar to Season 3, which will premiere in May 2022.
Star Trek fans were treated to another exciting day when Paramount+ announced Season 4 of Star Trek: Discovery and Season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
How Star Trek: Lower Decks Started?
Production on an animated Star Trek series began in June 2018. In October of that year, McMahan was hired as the series producer and scriptwriter.
All Access had previously purchased two seasons of Lower Decks. Titmouse, an animation studio, began production in February of the following year, with the main cast being unveiled in July of that year.
Star Trek: Lower Decks debuted on CBS All Access on August 6, 2020, and lasted for ten episodes until October of that year. Season 2 premiered on Paramount+ in August 2021. It has received a largely positive response.
Season 3 is currently in development. The program has gained critical acclaim from its inception for bringing fresh ideas to the long-running Star Trek franchise.
The Plot of Season 3
In season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks,’ Boimler experiences troubles on the USS Titan and quickly departs for the USS Cerritos after duplicating himself, with another Boimler remaining on Titan. Captain Freeman, Mariner’s mother, has a close bond with her.
Tendi astounds T’Ana, and Rutherford learns the truth about Shaxs’ death. In the final season, the Cerritos crew assists Captain Sonya Gomez and her staff in making initial contact with an extraterrestrial culture known as the Lapeerians.
The operation is a success, but Freeman is imprisoned on false charges of collaborating with Klingons to destroy the Pakled Planet.
With Freeman’s departure, the Cerritos squad will most likely be led by a new captain in Season 3. The change in management is likely to cause some issues in the day-to-day job of the bottom deckers.
Mariner will almost definitely be at the forefront of the fight to clear her mother’s name, but the charges against Freeman are serious. As a result, she will not be convicted for some time.
Meanwhile, Boimler is expected to keep devising new techniques to keep up with the competition. According to McMahan, Mariner, Tendi, and Boimler, Rutherford will grow and thrive in Season 3 in surprising ways.
Release Date of Season 3
Admirers of the show will be delighted to hear that a third season is on the way! Before the start of season 2, on April 6, 2021, Paramount+ announced that the series had been renewed for a third season. Like the last one, the new season will include ten episodes and will be produced by inventor Mike McMahan.
By May 2021, McMahan had completed the scenario for the first half of the upcoming season, and episode scripting had begun. Filming for Season 3 will start in June 2021, and production is currently in full swing.
On the other hand, season 3’s premiere date is yet unknown. The previous seasons of the show premiered in August.
A similar release date appears to be in the works if the second part’s production goes according to plan. As a result, viewers may expect season 3 of ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ to premiere in August 2022.
Where and How to Watch Season 3
Season 3 of Star Trek Lower Decks will be accessible on Paramount Plus in the United States and Amazon Prime Video in many other countries, including the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
Other streaming providers such as Disney Plus, HBO Max, and Netflix have no plans to release the film at this time. This is comparable to how other Star Trek shows, such as Star Trek: Picard, have lately been published by Paramount.
There is presently no trailer or lesson for Season 3. However, it is necessary to mention the surprising Season 2 ending, which had USS Cerritos Captain Freeman as a participant in the events. Pakled’s homeworld is a fascinating place to visit.
The most exciting information is that Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) from Star Trek: The Next Generation will return as a guest voiceover. Fans will have to wait and see what happens next.
