Strange New Worlds’ Season 3 Has Wrapped(ish) –

After over five months back on board the USS Enterprise (via Toronto), filming for the third season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is wrapping up. The news of the milestone was confirmed today by Captain Pike himself.

That’s (almost) a wrap on S3

On Thursday afternoon Strange New Worlds star Anson Mount posted an Instagram story with a shot of his space boots and the message “Hanging these big boys up for the season. Thanks, y’all. Looking forward to you seeing what we’re cooked up for Season 3.

After a report about his post, Mount took to Twitter/X to clarify the show had “Wrapped-ish” and that he still had some work on Friday…

While Anson has some work left to do, it does appear today is the last day for others. Christine Chapel actress Jess Bush used her Instagram story to share a strange new image of a wig being aired out behind the scenes with the message “Last day vibes.”

While not specifically about completing shooting, just yesterday Erica Ortegas actress Melissa Navia posted a photo on her Instagram of a mug featuring the #Moretegas hashtag, another clue that season 3 will deliver an Ortegas-focused episode. Navia hinted at this during her panel at the ST-SF convention in March.

The finale of the ten-episode season was directed by Maja Vrvilo, a Paramount+ Trek veteran who has directed episodes of Discovery, Picard, and both the Strange New Worlds series premiere and season 2 finale. She began her prep for her episode over a month ago. It appears that work on the finale may been completed earlier this month and the production had moved on to do some pickup-up shots over the last week. In a new interview with Screenrant, Jonathan Frakes revealed he returned to Toronto last week “and shot a little more” of the episode he directed earlier this year.

Filming on season 3 started on December 11, 2023, about a month after the SAG-AFTRA strike ended. The season was set to start filming in early May of 2023, but the WGA strike put the production on a pause that lasted for seven months. Recently Paramount+ confirmed that season 3 will debut in 2025 and they also ordered a fourth season of the series.
