Star Trek: Lower Decks returns in just two weeks, with season three debuting on Paramount+ on August 25th in the USA. And fans who have been watching the animated series around the world on Amazon Prime Video can also rest assured they are also on board for a return to the Cerritos.
Lower Decks on Amazon Prime Video on August 26th
Star Trek: Lower Decks debuted on Amazon Prime Video in a number of international markets in January of 2021, with the second season arriving in August 2021. This includes Prime Video in the U.K., Ireland, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and India. And Amazon Prime Video has confirmed with TrekMovie that season three will be no different, with the first episode arriving exclusively on the service in those same territories on Friday, August 26, the day after the USA premiere. Subsequent episodes of the 10-episode season will arrive each Friday on Prime Video.
In addition to the USA, the third season streams exclusively on Paramount+ in Latin America. In Canada, it debuts on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams exclusively on Crave.

Definitely good to know that Lower Decks will get a wide international release concurrently with the U.S. International fans really got the short end of the stick with Discovery (season 4), Prodigy and Strange New Worlds.
I’m wondering: Will Lower Decks be on both Paramount+ and Amazon Prime in the U.K.? Or only Amazon Prime? If it’s the latter that would reduce the attractiveness of Paramount+ in the U.K.
I suspect it will stay exclusive to Amazon Prime unless Paramount eventually reaches a deal like they did with Netflix. They might hold off until Picard season 3 airs though so they only have to negotiate for one show. Then again Amazon would probably be able to demand a lot more money than Netflix did.
This article is already 2 days old and only two comments? Perhaps overseas Trek fans aren’t that excited about this show?
We Japanese are very much looking forward to it.
However, I am a little concerned that there seems to be no official announcement or publicity even a week before the release.
