It’s First Contact Day, and Paramount+ has begun the celebration with the release of new character posters for the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Things are looking up for season 2 and the SNW crew
Last week, Paramount+ announced the 10-episode second season of Strange New Worlds will debut on June 15. Today’s release includes 8 new posters for the returning cast, with the only noteworthy change being Uhura, who is no longer wearing a cadet badge, indicating she has been promoted to ensign. Season 2 will also feature the return of guest star Paul Wesley as James T. Kirk and Carol Kane in a recurring role as Pelia, although neither got their own poster.
Season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will debut on Thursday, June 15 in the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria (and in South Korea at a later date to be announced). The rest of the 10-episode season will roll out each following Thursday. Strange New Worlds airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave in Canada. It is also available on SkyShowtime in the Nordics, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, and Central and Eastern Europe.
Strange New Worlds has also been officially renewed for a 10-episode third season.
UPDATE: Dancing on the set
Celia Rose Gooding posted a fun video with a bit of behind-the-scenes dancing on the season 2 set.

No trailer… yet
Fans may have been hoping for a season 2 trailer, but it looks like we will still have to wait for the first teaser. On Star Trek Day last September Paramount+ did release a clip from season 2.
And even though she didn’t get a poster, Paramount+ previously released an image of Carol Kane as Pela.
Stay tuned to TrekMovie on First Contact Day for any more possible updates or announcements.
