A season ticket you mean? No they don't (though if it's a disabled persons railcard you've got I'd check, the terms for that one are a bit different to the others).

There are no railcard discounts on season tickets. Railcard discounts are available on Off-peak one day travelcards, the off-peak price cap of Oyster PAYG, single and return tickets.

Depending on the journey it can be cheaper to get daily railcard discounted tickets than a normal rate weekly, etc, season.

We haven't yet established that the OP is talking about Season Tickets.

Some seven day Rover tickets are available with a Railcard discount.
E.g. The All Line Rail Rover seven day ticket

Of course there is no discount on season passes. These are for commuters, an easy source of money so why would the train companies attack their profits in such a way?

(me being sarcastic because train prices are out of control!)
