After a long hiatus due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds began production Monday, December 11th.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds ended season two on a high, and fans have been more than ready for news of the third season and when they can expect to see it. While we don’t have an air date yet, we do, according to Trekmovie, know that the series resumed production this Monday.
Both co-executive producer/writer Davy Perez and directing producer Chris Fisher relayed the production news on their respective Instagram pages with Perez sharing a picture of his chair with his name on it, along with the message “Strange New Worlds Season 3 Day 1 of Shooting….Time to get back in the chair.”
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds production is expected to take a little over five months.
Strange New Worlds is a special effects heavy production so it shouldn’t come as any surprise that the ten episode season is scheduled to take a little over five months to film. It has an intended wrap date of May 21, 2024 at CBS Stages in Canada.
We already know that this season is going to be bigger and better than season two, according to co-showrunner Akiva Goldsman, and bigger takes more time. We can expect the Gorn to return as villains, especially with season two ending on a cliffhanger that had Captain Batel carrying the Gorn’s eggs which could end up killing the entire crew of the Enterprise.
Scottish actor Martin Quinn will return as Scotty, as co-showrunner Henry Alonso Meyers told TVLine back in August that they’d been talking about Scotty for a while. Meyers added that it was inevitable that they would start to “pull in more folks that are sort of TOS-based.” Of course, that opens up a plethora of opportunities, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what season three will bring us!
