Paramount+ has launched the official trailer for Season 3 of its hit original animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks. The trailer was introduced by series creator Mike McMahan during the Star Trek universe panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. All-new character portraits featuring the Lower Decks crew — Mariner, Boimler, Tendi and Rutherford — also made their debut during the panel.
Created by Emmy Award winner McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), Season 3 of Star Trek: Lower Decks challenges the U.S.S. Cerritos ensigns in (hilarious) ways they could never imagine, starting with a shocking resolution for Season 2s epic cliffhanger finale.
The Starfleet crew residing in the “lower decks” of the U.S.S. Cerritos includes Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome; Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid; Ensign Tendi, voiced by Noël Wells; and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by Eugene Cordero. The Starfleet characters that comprise the U.S.S. Cerritos’ bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis; Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O’Connell; and Doctor T’Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.
The series is produced by CBS’ Eye Animation Productions (CBS Studios’ animation arm), Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Secret Hideout’s Alex Kurtzman, Roddenberry Ent.’s Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth, Katie Krentz (219 Productions) and Heather Kadin serve as executive producers alongside creator and showrunner Mike McMahan. Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout), who brought McMahan to the project, also serves as an executive producer.
Titmouse (Big Mouth), the Emmy Award-winning independent animation production company, serves as the animation studio for the series.
