Star Trek: Picard has already been renewed for a season 2
Star Trek: Picardhasn't even premiered yet, but CBS All Access must be certain that audiences are going to love the upcoming sci-fi show as it's already been renewed for a second season.
As excited Trekkies will already know, Sir Patrick Stewart is reprising the titular role of Jean-Luc Picard, the former captain of the USS Stargazer and both models of the USS Enterprise, for the first time since 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis.
Picard actor Stewart teased back in February that he's committed to the spin-off for "possibly three years", hinting at more episodes of the series.
Star Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes has confirmed that he will be directing part of the upcoming Picard spin-off series, while Next Generation's Brent Spiner and Voyager's Jeri Ryan confirmed they'd be appearing in the series as their respective characters Data and Seven of Nine.
As the streaming platform did with Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard is set to premiere new episodes weekly. The second season is estimated to launch somewhere between late 2020 and early 2021.
