The Vulcan Reporter exclusively revealed back in August of last year that Star Trek: Lower Decks was renewed for a third and fourth season.
Star Trek: Lower Decks is an adult animated television series created by Mike McMahan for the streaming service CBS All Access (later rebranded as Paramount+). It is the ninth Star Trek series and was launched in 2020 as part of executive producer Alex Kurtzman’s expanded Star Trek Universe. Lower Decks is the first animated Star Trek series since the 1970s series Star Trek: The Animated Series. It follows the low-ranking support crew of the starship U.S.S. Cerritos in the year 2380.
Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, and Eugene Cordero voice “lower decks” crew members of the Cerritos, with Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Fred Tatasciore, and Gillian Vigman also providing voices for the series. Work on an animated Star Trek series began in June 2018, with McMahan joining as creator and showrunner by that October when Lower Decks was ordered for two seasons by All Access.
Star Trek: Lower Decks premiered on CBS All Access on August 6, 2020, and its first season ran for 10 episodes until October. A second season is in production and is expected to premiere on Paramount+ on August 12th, 2021.
