“Make it so!” More than a month ahead of its series premiere, Star Trek: Picard has reportedly been renewed for a second season on CBS All Access. The first season is scheduled to launch on January 23, 2020.
The renewal news comes as the California Film Commission announces that the second season of Star Trek: Picard would be one of 16 TV shows to receive tax credits for filming in California. A total of $152 million in tax credits is being reserved for all of the shows and Picard will receive an estimated $20.45 million, more than any of the other projects.
A sequel to Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Picard marks the return of Patrick Stewart as former Enterprise Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The new series will also star Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones. Actors from TNG and other Trek series will also reprise their roles, including Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, Jeri Ryan, and Jonathan Del Arco.
