CBS has huge plans for the Star Trek show and it will come out very soon as fans are waiting for it since the last October. Here is everything you need to know about “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 3 release date delay, trailer, plot spoilers, cast and more updates.
Star Trek Discovery Season 3 Release Date Delay due to COVID-19
Star Trek Discovery Season 3 release date was set as April 2020 but it looks that has been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While the first few episodes are complete and CBS could air them, it would create a lot of trouble after a few weeks. The makers are not sure whether they should release an unfinished season or postpone the premiere date of “Star Trek” Season 3 entirely.
While another CBS show such as “The Flash” has decided to end the current season without the last episode, Star Trek is much more complicated. Coronavirus outbreak will be controlled over the next few months and hopefully the third season of Star Trek: Discovery can release without further delay. The earliest possible release date for Star Trek Discovery Season 3 is speculated around October 2020 at the moment.
