The U.S.S. Discovery has found itself in a future far beyond anything we’ve seen in Star Trek coming out of its second season. And now, we know just when we’ll get to see them navigate that future.

Having said nothing at all about the upcoming season at its Comic-Con panel for Star Trek last week, CBS has just announced that Star Trek: Discovery will return to the U.S. on October 16 — the week after Star Trek: Lower Decks first season will conclude, so you’ve got pretty much non stop Trek every week starting in early August.

The season, briefly teased approximately seven billion years ago at New York Comic-Con in 2019, will see the time-strewn Discovery crew find the Federation of 930 years in their future a pretty dire place to be and take it upon themselves to help restore it to the ideals that have lead to Starfleet’s endurance across the centuries.

Discovery’s third season will run for 13 episodes and will run continuously with no breaks (as there was in the show’s first season) when it lands later this year. In Australia, you’ll be able to catch it on Netflix — but a exact local release date is yet to be confirmed.
