We are still a couple of months away from the debut of the second season of Star Trek: Lower Decks, but production is already underway for the third.
Newsome back in the booth for season three
In May Lower Decks creator and showrunner Mike McMahan revealed they were well into the writing for season three of Lower Decks. And now it appears the show is ready for voice acting production as well. On Sunday Tawny Newsome posted a selfie on Instagram with the message “SEASON THREE” along with a hashtag for Star Trek Lower Decks. The image shows the actress in a recording booth, wearing a shirt from the Lower Decks T-shirt subscription club, referencing Tulgana IV from the episode “Envoys.”

Newsome is in a recording booth, which is another sign of a return to normal. Season two was recorded remotely due to the pandemic. It does appear that Newsome is alone in the booth recording as Ensign Beckett Mariner, without her co-star Jack Quaid voicing Brad Boimler. Quaid recently said he missed being able to record live with Newsome as they had for season one. It’s possible Quaid wasn’t available to record with Newsome as he is currently in Toronto for production on The Boys. He did quickly reply to her post on Instagram with a series of party popper emojis, celebrating the event.
Season two of Lower Decks arrives on August 12th on Paramount+ (and CTV Sci-Fi in Canada and Amazon Prime internationally). Season one debuted in the first week of August 2020 so with production moving along at pace, the third season is expected to arrive in 2022.
Quaid and Frakes… and Urban
Speaking of Jack, last Thursday he shared an image of himself with Star Trek legend Jonathan Frakes, from that time they first met and Frakes spoiled the end of season one of Lower Decks for him.

And speaking of Quaid being busy shooting The Boys, today Jack shared a fun happy birthday post with his The Boys co-star (and Star Trek’s Dr. McCoy) Karl Urban.
