Star Trek: Picard renewed for season 2
10 new episodes of the show will premiere in either late 2020 or early 2021.
Ahead of its premiere in January 2020, Star Trek: Picard has been greenlit for season 2.
The announcement came from the California Film Commission who included it on their list of the shows that'll be receiving tax credits next year.
It’ll once again consist of 10 episodes and will see the departure of current showrunner Michael Chabon as he’s set to oversee a TV adaptation of his comic novel Kavalier and Clay.
An official start date for production has yet to be confirmed but it could reportedly be as early as next spring.
Star Trek: Picard sees Patrick Stewart returning to the iconic role of USS Enterprise Captain 18 years after his last appearance in the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis.
It's an original from US-only streaming service CBS-All Access but will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video here in the UK starting on 24th January.
He’ll be joined by a mix of classic and brand-new characters including Commander Riker (Jonathon Frakes), android Data (Brent Spiner), Dr Jurati (Alison Pill) and Romulan agent Narek (Harry Treadaway).
Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard will premiere sometime in late 2020 or early 2021.
