Star Trek: Picard Renewed for Second Season

Star Trek: Picard

Star Trek: Picard will be arriving on CBS All Access in just a couple of weeks. When it arrives fans will get to see what happens in the most recent chapter of Jean-Luc Picard’s life. However, before the arrival of the first season has even been broadcast the second season has now been officially confirmed. The news came from CBS All Access’s Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President of Original Content for CBS All Access, during a Television Critics Association presentation. She said:

“The energy and excitement around the premiere of STAR TREK: PICARD has reached a magnitude greater than all of us at CBS All Access could have hoped for. We’re thrilled to announce plans for a second season before the series’ debut, and we are confident that ‘Star Trek’ fans and new viewers alike will be captured by the stellar cast and creative team’s meticulously crafted story when it premieres on Jan. 23.”

This series has been highly anticipated by Star Trek fans who eagerly await the return of Jean-Luc Picard. While he will be mostly surrounded by a new crew, some familiar faces from other Star Trek series will be returning as well. The cast is made up of Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Dahj), Evan Evagora (Elnor), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera(Cristobal Rios) and Harry Treadaway (Narek) along with special guest stars Brent Spiner (Data), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi).

For Season 2 of the series, Alex Kurtzman, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Patrick Stewart, Terry Matalas (12 Monkeys, MacGyver), Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers; Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) and Kirsten Beyer serve as co-executive producers. Terry Matalas will be the showrunner for the second season. He was a production assistant on Star Trek: Voyager and also Star Trek: Enterprise. More recently he was the creator/showrunner for the TV adaptation of 12 Monkeys.

The first season of Star Trek: Picard will be arriving on CBS All Access on January 23, 2020. New episodes will then be subsequently released on Thursdays on the streaming service. There will be ten episodes in total for the first season of the show.
