As we reported earlier this week, filming on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 3 began on Monday. And today we got a little glimpse onto the set.
Hello season 3
Paramount+ shared a shot from the USS Enterprise bridge set on Instagram. It was taken on Tuesday, as can be seen on the clapperboard for episode 301.

You can see the back of Celia Rose Gooding’s Uhura at her communications console with the message on Instagram is “Hailing frequencies are open. Hello from the set of #StarTrek #StrangeNewWorlds Season 3” The clapperboard also confirms our earlier reporting that producing director Chris Fisher is directing the season 3 premiere.
Our report earlier in the week included confirmation from Fisher that production had started via his own Instagram post on Monday from the set with the message “Day 1, Episode 031… shenanigans in space!”
After that report, actress Jess Bush posted an Instagram story showing off her new season 3 cap (which we shared via our Twitter).

Season 3 was originally set to start filming at the beginning of May, but the double strikes put that on hold. Filming for the 10-episode season is scheduled for just over 5 months, and is scheduled to wrap on May 21, 2024. Strange New Worlds is produced at CBS Stages Canada in Mississauga, Ontario just outside of Toronto.
Section 31 is next
In case you missed our earlier report, Paramount+ is also getting ready to go into production on the Star Trek: Section 31 movie starring Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh. The streaming movie event is scheduled to start filming on Monday, January 29th with a shoot planned for six weeks, wrapping up on March 13.
Paramount has not set release dates for either project, but it’s possible one or both could arrive on Paramount+ by the end of 2024. Currently, the only confirmed live-action Star Trek coming to Paramount+ is the fifth and final season of Discovery, set to debut in April.
Stay tuned for more production updates.
