‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 3 Will Be Delayed Due to Coronavirus

With Picard coming to an end this week, Star Trek fans have been clamoring for more information on when exactly Discovery season 3 would premiere. The as yet announced release date will be pushed back  as the heavy FX show was still in post production at outbreak of the pandemic.

Cinema Blend reports: An update on the progress of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 came during Wilson Cruz’s Instagram Live session earlier in the week. While Cruz didn’t have specifics on how far out the season was from being completed, Cruz’s co-star Anthony Rapp appeared in the comments to talk about where the season is so far.

They’re currently editing and doing visual effects for Season 3, but it’s shifting to work from home so it’ll be slower than usual. No word yet as to how long that will take or when it will be released…

From the sound of Cruz’s follow up tweet to Rapp’s comment during the livestream, it looks confirmed that Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 will be delayed. The good news is that it seems all the filming is completed, which means that a good chunk of the post-production work can continue, albeit at a slower pace as crews shift to work from home.
We’ll update you as more becomes known.
