Star Trek: Lower Decks

Star Trek: Lower Decks is the animated comedy series created by Mike McMahan. Season 1 was scheduled for a 2020 release, but surprised me by queue-jumping Star Trek: Discovery! It ran from August to October 2020, and I reviewed each episode within a couple of days of their broadcast. Season 2 kicked off a year later and ran from August to October 2021.

A third season was confirmed in mid-2021 and – fingers crossed – will debut sometime in 2022. With Discovery, Picard, and Strange New Worlds also on the cards it’s at least possible that Lower Decks Season 3 will arrive later in the year… but watch this space!

Season 3 Buildup:

Lower Decks Season 3 has already entered production. All being well we’ll see it in the summer of 2022 – if it follows the pattern of Seasons 1 and 2 it’ll arrive on our screens in mid-August! If we get any significant announcements, news, images, or a teaser trailer I’ll do my best to break it down here.

Star Trek: Lower Decks review – Season 1, Episode 6: Terminal Provocations

“For the last three weeks at least, I’ve felt that the newest episode of Lower Decks was my favourite and the funniest yet, and this week is no exception. I think we’re at a point where I just have to say that the series as a whole is funny and enjoyable, so that I can try to avoid saying the same thing every time!”Read more Star Trek: Lower Decks review – Season 1, Episode 6: Terminal Provocations
