Star Trek: Picard Renewed for Season 2 One Month Before Premiere

While Star Trek: Picard is still over a month away from its premiere on CBS All Access, the premium streaming service has already renewed the upcoming series for a second season.

According to Deadline, CBS has ordered a 10-episode second season, with the network receiving $20.4 million in tax incentives from the state of California to help finance the production. While no start date has officially been announced, principal photography may begin as early as this spring.

Season 1 showrunner Michael Chabon is currently focusing on writing and executive producing a television adaptation of his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay for Showtime. He is expected to remain attached as an executive producer, but a new showrunner will likely succeed him for Season 2.
