We know when Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 3 is coming or more importantly, when it's not

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has a tentative release date, much to our chagrin.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has largely been positively received by the fandom. There are issues with the show, as there are with any form of entertainment, but for the most part it's a hit with fans new and old. Considering that's been hard to pull off with the modern slate of shows, that says something about the quality and reach of the content.

It's been a pleasure to watch and review the show, and the excitement for season three is at an all-time high, especially with how season two ended. Having the Enterprise forced to decide to let innocent people die or start a costly war with the Gorn is truly a harrowing moment in the show and one that will have huge repricussions.

Hopefully, they don't do a cop-out, like have the Klingons attack the Gorn or something that wasn't alluded to, but we'll see how that situation is resolved in season three of the show. Sadly, we now know when the show will debut, or more specifically when it won't; namely this year.

The writer's and actors strike really derailed the filming process for Star Trek and caused many properties to be delayed significantly. This includes Strange New Worlds, who despite seeing their season two finale come to a head in August of 2023, fans shouldn't expect the show anytime soon.

According to Variety, the third season of Strange New Worlds is tentatively set for 2025. Not quarter one, or quarter two of the year (Jan-March/April-June), just 2025. This is a strong sign that fans will be waiting for possibly two full years for the resolution to the cliffhanger of season two. It's always possible that the show gets a January or February 2025 release date, but considering the show won't end its shooting schedule until May, and then you have months of CGI to put into the show, it could be a full 24-months between the end of season two and the start of season three.
