It’s official, CBS All Access has renewed its big-budget sci-fi series “Star Trek: Discovery” for a third season.
In addition, the series is getting a new showrunner in the form of Michelle Paradise who will now work alongside Alex Kurtzman to run the series set a decade before the original show.
Of the hire, Kurtzman says: “Michelle joined us midway through season two and energized 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.”
The renewal comes halfway through the airing of the show’s second season which is expected to air its finale in April, and the third season is expected to go to air sometime in 2020.
The first season ran 15 episodes, the second is running 14 episodes. An episode count for the third hasn’t been revealed.
Like the previous seasons, episodes will be released in 4K Dolby Vision HDR on Netflix for all territories outside North America within hours of their release on CBS All Access in the United States.
