The second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds comes after the conclusion of the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard, which is currently streaming on Paramount+. This season of Picard has gone new places with a new ship, the U.S.S. Titan-A. It also has had plenty of nods to past as well, including The Bounty from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and the Fleet Museum where there was plenty of ships from the past on display. While this is officially the finale season of the series, there has been plenty of fan enthusiasm for a spinoff potentially called Star Trek: Legacy. There is nothing official connected with Legacy. It is simply a dream at this point.
What is official is that Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will be returning to Paramount+ on June 15th for its second season and that character art was shared today ahead of its arrival.
