CBS showing faith in Star Trek: Lower Decks…

Back in 2018, CBS originally ordered two seasons of the animated series, demonstrating that the network had faith in the show from the start.

In April 2021, it was then announced that the series had already been renewed for a third season.

This is excellent news for fans of Lower Decks who may have been slightly concerned that the show may not have been popular enough to warrant a renewal from CBS.

Season 1 received mixed feedback from both viewers and critics alike, scoring a 59% on Metacritic, 67% on Rotten Tomatoes and 7/10 on IMDB.

However, work on season 2 had already begun by May 2020, with creator Mike McMahan responding on Twitter to a fans Lower Decks cosplay with: “An awesome thing to see while we write season 2!”

He would then reply to a tweet for voice actor Paul Tompkins in June and comment how the team are working on a season 2 episode “right now.”
