Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2 Blu-ray Release Announced

Star Trek: Lower Decks‘ second season is headed to Blu-ray. Paramount announced that the Star Trek: Lower Decks – Season Two Blu-ray and DVD collections will arrive in July. The two-disc home media collection includes every episode of the show’s second season, plus more than an hour of bonus content, including two exclusive featurettes (“A Sound Foundation” and “Lower Decktionary: Season Two,”), Easter eggs, animatics, and more. It’s the prime opportunity to revisit Star Trek: Lower Decks‘ sophomore season before the third season debuts on Paramount+ this year, hopefully resolving the cliffhanger that the animated series left us with last year.

Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least significant ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, including Ensigns Beckett Mariner (Tawny Newsome, Space Force), Brad Boimler (Jack Quaid, The Boys), Samanthan Rutherford (Eugene Cordero, Kong: Skull Island), and D’Vana Tendi (No?l Wells, Master of None). They have to keep up with their duties and their social lives while a multitude of sci-fi anomalies occur on the ship. Season Two follows their adventures as they deal with changes in group dynamics, chasing promotions, and other sci-fi missions. The ship’s bridge crew includes Captain Carol Freeman voiced by Dawnn Lewis (The Rich & the Ruthless), Commander Jack Ransom voiced by Jerry O’Connell (Billions), Lieutenant Shaxs voiced by Fred Tatasciore (American Dad!), Doctor T’Ana voiced by Gillian Vigman (New Girl), Lieutenant Billups voiced by Paul Scheer (The League), and Lieutenant Kayshon voiced by Carl Tart (Jimmy Kimmel Live!).
