Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 release date has been announced, plus Paramount+ has officially renewed the series for a third season.
It was revealed last week that Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 3 had already begun production, but we hadn’t heard anything about the release of season 2… until now. Paramount+ has announced that Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 will debut on June 15th.
In addition to revealing the release date for Strange New Worlds season 2, the streaming service has officially renewed the series for a ten-episode third season. The adventures of the crew of the USS Enterprise will continue. The series stars Anson Mount as Christoper Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, Ethan Peck as Spock, Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’an Noonien Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Cadet Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Lt. Erica Ortegas, and Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga.
The second season of Strange New Worlds started shooting months before the first season premiere and wrapped in July 2022. As someone who immensely enjoyed the series, I can’t wait to see what the next two seasons have in store for us. While I consider myself a fan of Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard, I was hungry for a return to the more episodic stories that Strange New Worlds has offered. While we’re on the subject of Star Trek, Paramount+ also revealed that the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks has been renewed for a fifth season. The fourth season will premiere on the streaming service late this summer. The second season of Star Trek: Prodigy will follow, with a premiere slated for this winter.
Last week, I guessed that Paramount+ might be saving the official announcement of the season 3 renewal and season 2 release date of Strange New Worlds for First Contact Day (April 5th). But with those reveals out of the way… who knows what might happen. Franchise producer Alex Kurtzman recently teased that we should hear about new Star Trek projects soon. “[We] have plans for new things… there’s quite a few plans, and you’ll hear about them soon,” Alex Kurtzman said. “We will continue to expand the Star Trek universe, absolutely.“
The first season of Strange New Worlds is now available on Blu-ray, and will be released on 4K Ultra HD on May 16th, which will mark the first 4K release of any Star Trek TV series.
