Star Trek: Picard is a television series made by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access and is the eighth Star Trek series. The series was launched in 2020 as a part of Kurtzman’s expanded Star Trek Universe. The series has been produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout, Weed Road Pictures, Escapist Fare and Roddenberry Entertainment. The show has been designed to be slow and more character-focused in comparison to the previous series in the franchise.
The filming of the series has been done mainly in California and Michael Chabon has been the showrunner in the first season and Terry Matalas took over in the second season when Michael Chabon moved to other commitments. The series has been well-received by the audience as well as critics. It has an approval rating of 87% on Rotten Tomatoes and has scored 76 out of 100 on Metacritic. The series has won various accolades and nominations at Primetime Emmy Awards 2020, Costume Designers Guild Awards 2021 and Critics’ Choice Super Awards 2021.
The release date of Star Trek: Picard Season 2 has not been announced yet by the makers since production of the show is in early stages. Still for now, we can expect the second season of Star Trek: Picard sometime in 2022. Let me tell you that the first season premiered on 23rd January 2020 and it had 10 episodes with a running time of 45 to 60 minutes. The series was renewed for a second and third season before the debut of Season 1. The second season will also have 10 episodes.
Except the release date, the makers have confirmed the details of a few lead cast members for the second season. The lead cast of Star Trek: Picard Season 2 includes Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Alison Pill as Agnes Jurati, Isa Briones as Soji Asha, Evan Evagora as Elnor, Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, Santiago Cabrera as Cristobal “Chris” Rios, Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan and Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine.
We cannot predict anything for now regarding the plot of Star Trek: Picard Season 2 but Patrick Stewart has assured the fans of the show that they won’t be disappointed. Nothing has been mentioned yet about the plot of the second season by the makers of the show.
