The second season of Star Trek: Lower Decks is coming in August. That detail and more, including a first look trailer, was revealed during today’s First Contact Day virtual events.
First look at Lower Decks season 2
Lower Decks season two will arrive on Thursday, August 12, roughly a year after the debut of the series in 2020. The premiere date was revealed in an all-new teaser trailer for season two, which was introduced by series creator Mike McMahan following the “Second Contact” panel during today’s virtual global First Contact Day celebration.
The trailer confirms the return of Jonathan Frakes as Captain Riker of the USS Titan in season two. TrekMovie will do our usual screencap and analysis of the trailer following all the First Contact Day festivities.
Renewed for a third season
Today’s official announcement also revealed that Paramount+ has renewed Lower Decks for a third season. Season 3 will be 10 episodes long, like season one (and presumably like season two).
