Sir Patrick Stewart’s return to the world of Star Trek may have concluded its first season, but never fear — Jean-Luc Picard remains lined up for more adventures in an already-confirmed period two.
“The energy and excitement across the premiere of Star Trek: Picard has reached a size greater than most of us at CBS All Access could have hoped,” CBS All Access’ Julie McNamara stated in a phone conference verifying the series’ early renewal.

When is Picard series two coming to CBS and Amazon Prime?
Currently unknown, though the series’ early renewal — that seemingly came before the first episode had even aired — would suggest that the gears are in motion to get a relatively quick turnaround, maybe for a 2021 airdate.
However, the ongoing disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic (which has shut down almost all TV production worldwide) could mean we are in for a long wait based on how long CBS has to hold off before they could film.
Who’ll be at the cast for Picard period two?
In reality, Whoopi Goldberg — who played with Guinan from the 1980s/90s show — has already been requested to return by Stewart himself, who invited her live on US TV show The View.
So who knows? There could be all sorts of familiar faces season two eventually beams down to us.
What’s going to happen in Picard period two?
While we do not want to give any spoilers from the show one finale, it will largely wrap up the majority of the synthetic human/Romulan spy narrative, which could suggest that season two will investigate other corners of the galaxy as Picard tries to bring Starfleet back to its better self.
Alternatively, it could be that Picard’s writers will choose to delve deeper into Romulan culture after introducing new elements of it in year one or follow Seven of Nine’s (Jeri Ryan) continued struggles to move on from her Borg past.
For our part, we hope we will get to see more of what Picard’s old Enterprise crew have been around, examples of that were the highlight of one.
