Star Trek Discovery season 3 release schedule and episode guide

When do new episodes of Star Trek Discovery season 3 come out in the UK?

Michael Burnham

After a very long wait for the new season, Sonequa Martin-Green’s Commander Burnham and the rest of the Star Trek Discovery cast are blasting back onto our screens for a new series of episodes – but as with previous years, the release of the sci-fi drama will be slightly different in the USA and the UK.


While in America Star Trek Discovery is a CBS All Access (soon to be Paramount+) streaming original, in the UK and other territories Discovery is released on rival streaming platform Netflix. US viewers also get the episodes a day earlier than UK fans, so watch out for spoilers online…

Unlike many streaming shows (particularly on Netflix) which release all their episodes at once, Star Trek Discovery will be sticking to a weekly release schedule. In the US this means episodes will be released on CBS All Access every Thursday from the 15th October 2020 until the season finale on Thursday 7th January 2021.

In the UK, new episodes will appear on Netflix every Friday morning from the 16th October until the season finale is released on January 8th – at which point, anyone who hasn’t watched yet can binge the entire season at once, if they’re so inclined.

For clarity, both US and UK initial release dates have been included below.

Episode 1: That Hope is You – US Thursday 15th October, UK Friday 16th October

Episode 2: Far From Home – US Thursday 22nd October, UK Friday 23rd October

Episode 3: People of Earth – US Thursday 29th October, UK Friday 30th October
