Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1
A prequel-sequel series—a prequel to the original Star Trek, a sequel to the second season of Star Trek: Discovery—Strange New Worlds follows the crew of the original USS Enterprise as they boldly go seeking all of those titular new worlds. Returning Discovery season two guests Anson Mount, Ethan Peck, and Rebecca Romijn portray Captain Pike, Mr. Spock, and Number One respectively, joined by a new cast playing familiar and fresh faces alike,
Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3
The third season of the delightful animated series following the misfit crew of the USS Cerritos—and in particular its cadre of ensigns, Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Boimler (Jack Quaid), Tendi (Noël Wells), and Rutherford (Eugene Cordero)—doesn’t have a release date yet, beyond a window of summer 2022. Expected to start airing around the time Strange New Worlds starts wrapping up in July, season three sees our heroic ensigns and the remaining bridge officers aboard the Cerritos band together to free Captain Freeman (Dawnn Lewis) from Starfleet Security, after she was wrongly accused of destroying the Pakled homeworld in the climax of season two.
