After over a year, Star Trek: Discovery is back for its third season beginning Thursday, October 15, at 9 p.m. ET on CTV Sci-Fi Channel.
The second season ended with Commander Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and her grew going through a wormhole and the new season begins with them in an unknown future – over 900 years into the future!
“We [the characters]still are who we are – we do still come from 2256,” Martin-Green tells Bell Media. “But this future comes with so much discovery, so much revelation, so much challenge, because we are 930 years ahead. Technology has advanced in such a major way, language has advanced in such a major way, science, all of it. And we have to acclimate. We might as well be, you know, exhibits in a museum. We’re so old to everyone! So we have to find where we fit. Can we fit? This is a group of geniuses, so we can – but it’s hard.”
Returning for the third season alongside Martin-Green are Doug Jones (Commander Saru), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Commander Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Ensign Sylvia Tilly), and Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber). Michelle Yeoh (Philippa Georgiou) and Tig Notaro (Jett Reno) will be back as guests.
Joining Star Trek: Discovery this season are David Ajala as Cleveland “Book” Booker, while a Maine Coon named Leeu will portray Book’s cat, Grudge. Also joining this season are Blu del Barrio as the first non-binary character, Adira, and Ian Alexander as a transgender character named Gray.
The 13-episode third season of Star Trek: Discovery was filmed in Toronto and on location in Iceland from July 2019 through February 2020.
Star Trek: Discovery streams on CBS All Access in the U.S., and on Netflix in the U.K. In addition to airing on CTV Sci-Fi, the series will also stream on Crave in Canada each Friday.
