Everything you need to know ASAP!
By delving back into the past reframing the story of Patrick Stewart Starfleet Captain in his twilight years, Startrek: Picard is rewriting the history of Tv shows and is clearly a class apart. CBS has renewed for a second season and the Blockbuster hit of Season 1 is quite a thrill. According to Jeri Ryan shooting is set to begin on February 1 with 10 episodes already confirmed.
Star Trek: Picard season 2: When will it air?

Unfortunately, Season 2 is not arriving anytime soon and fingers crossed hopefully by end of 2021 or early 2022.
Who’s coming back?
Steward is definitely on the cards as the lead as he’s expected to spin-off “possibly three years”. So it’s a closure that the lead is up for the next-generation brand new season.
While speaking on a virtual panel at Comic-Con back in July 2020, he discussed what he found most challenging about the show.
“For me, it was a case of, ‘I’m sorry, what’s your name? You are, who? And you’re playing what?'” he said. “We had a brand new team. For me, a lot of the first half of the first season was literally about getting to know the people I was working with.”
Hopefully, joining the lead in the new season would be Isa Briones as Soji Asha, Alison Pill as Agnes Jurati, Santiago Cabrera as Cristobal “Chris” Rios, Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, Harry Treadaway as Narek, and Evan Evagora as Elnor.
Even though the cast is not yet confirmed, WG is a constant as Patrick Stewart officially invited a super fan-favorite Whoopi Goldberg in the role of Guinan to join Season 2. He exclaimed: “It was wonderful having you, and we cannot wait to have you with us again one more time.”
Stewart’s suggested as much: “It was a very desirable and a very emotional experience, to be reunited with Jonathan Frakes, with Marina Sirtis. And with Brent Spiner too, although he doesn’t appear that often, he has a very significant role in season one, and maybe he might again in season two. But I can say no more than that. Sorry to be so coy.”
When to expect it?
Unfortunately, not anytime soon. New footage is unlikely to arrive until the latter half of 2021 at least, if not even later.
Star Trek: Picard airs on CBS in the US and Amazon Prime internationally, including the UK.
