The first season finale of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds only arrives next week, but they have already wrapped up shooting for the next one.
That’s a wrap
Confirmation that the Toronto-based production had finished work on season two of Strange New Worlds first came from producer/director Chris Fisher. He sent out a tweet Friday morning announcing it and thanking the cast and crew and the city of Toronto.
That’s a wrap on Season 2 of #StarTrek #StrangeNewWorlds ! Thanks to the very best cast, crew, writers, directors, city of Toronto, and Canada for all your love and support! And most of all thanks to the amazing fans and all those who share our collective goal #toboldlygo

Writer/Producer Bill Wolkoff showed how the AR wall got turned into a (virtual) party in the engineering set to celebrate the completion of filming.
Production on s2 has wrapped! The @Pixomondo artists made virtual fireworks for our last day at the AR wall. Probably smart, less chance of burning down the sets. #StrangeNewWorlds pic.twitter.com/xnxoThd6s3

This announcement is likely for the main production unit. It is common for additional second unit and/or pick-up shots to still be required, along with additional dialog recording.
Filming began on February 1st for the 10-episode season. And it was in mid-March that Paramount officially confirmed filming, along with announcing the season would include Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley playing James T. Kirk.
There has been no official announcement on a release timeframe for season two of Strange New Worlds, but a good guess would be around a year after the May 2022 debut of season one. While it is expected, there is no official word on if the show will continue into a third season.
