Star Trek: Lower Decks will have a fast turnaround time.
Star Trek: Lower Decks season two debuts on Aug. 12, 2021, for everyone with access to Paramount+. Yet, a problem has arisen; What happens if you’re out of the United States, don’t have a VPN, and therefore, don’t have access to the service? Then you have to watch it through your international distributor. In the case of Star Trek, that means Amazon Prime Video.
So if you’re in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, India, or the rest of Europe, you’re stuck with Amazon. Now, how long will it take the series to get over to your streaming service? Sometimes it can be a week, other times a month, and for a lucky few, within few days. Yet, for international Amazon Prime Video subscribers, you only have to wait a single day. Lower Decks’ second season will premiere on Aug. 13, 2021, for the entire world to see….as long as they’re signed up to Amazon Prime Video.
Lower Decks second season looks to rectify all of its issues from the first season

The first season of Lower Decks was critically panned and had one of, if not still actively holds, the lowest approval rating of any Star Trek series in history. It was far from what a lot of critics and fans expected, resulting in many absolutely hating the show. It felt like a giant middle finger to the idea of what Star Trek was supposed to be.
Not only that, but the international fans had to wait five months to watch it. Coupled with an unspectacular trailer, poor audience and critics scores, and the fact it felt more like it was trying to be Ricky & Morty instead of being its own thing and you can tell why it had a rough first season.
Yet, the season two trailer managed to excite more than most, and while comedy is subjective, it did seem actually funny, unlike the first season’s trailer. Sure, the show has to air still so we have no idea if it’s going to be good or not, but it’s hard to imagine it being worse than the first season.
