Star Trek Discovery’s third season expected to be delayed due to remote post-production issues says one of the show’s editors.
If you were hoping for Star Trek Discovery‘s third season in a timely manner, don’t hold your breath. Scott Gamzon, an editor on Star Trek: Discovery confirmed on Twitter that the show is going to face some delays as the crew works on the series from their respective homes.
The revelation came when series actor Wilson Cruz responded to a fan on Twitter who was inquiring about a series premiere date. Cruz went on to say that “everyone is working as hard as they can”, and to have patience while also noting that the crew will post a premiere date when there’s one to announce.
Gamzon would then chime in, echoing and expanding on Wilson’s comments. The series editor said flat out that the editing work was going to ” It’s going to take longer” to get it done. While he didn’t say “than average/normal”, that is what’s implied, that the crew will take longer than average to get the third season finished. This is no doubt not an optimal situation to be in, but considering the risks, this is the right call by all those involved.
Unlike many other shows who are debating ending their series or seasons early due to the fact they were in the middle of filming, Discovery didn’t have to face that dilemma. The show is completely done filming and it just needs to be properly edited before it can be uploaded to CBS All Access.
Fans could be looking at a long wait, much like Amazon’s The Boys. The series was supposed to come out early in 2020 but was quietly moved back due to issues with post-production. Another series, YouTube’s Cobra Kai still has yet to put out a release date for their third season as well. While neither The Boys or Cobra Kai have anyone saying too prominently that it’s due to production at-home issues that could very well be the case.
It currently remains unknown when the series will finally be released.
