This shouldn’t surprise anyone that’s seen the outpouring of interest in the return of Jean-Luc Picard, Deadline is reporting that CBS has secured the California film tax credits for a second season of Star Trek: Picard. This makes it all but official that there will be a second season, which also isn’t surprising considering the producers said a second season was “already in the works” back in October, and that they have a three season plan for Picard.
As with season one, the way the Hollywood press found out about season two being locked in is thanks to the filings of California tax credits. From the filing, the second season will also be 10-episodes. The production was able to secure $20.45 million, the most any television project has ever been awarded by the California Film Commission.
CBS has not officially commented on the filing, so any other details such as returning supporting cast, or the person who will showrun the second season, have yet to be confirmed.
Star Trek: Picard season 1 will be released in January 2020. It will be available on CBS All Access in the USA. CTV Sci-Fi Channel (formerly called Space) and CraveTV in Canada, and on Amazon Prime Video for the rest of the world.
