The first season of Star Trek: Picard explored Jean-Luc Picard's past as well as his involvement with the Romulans. In the season finale, the character's consciousness has been transferred into an android body, with the second season likely to touch upon how Picard and the rest will adjust to this. While plot details about Season 2 are mostly kept under wraps, it looks like Patrick Stewart is excited to move forward.

In a recent interview with LA Times' The Envelope, Stewart was asked about what he has learned in Season 1 that he'll bring into the upcoming season. "There was no socializing [between the actors] for the first five months — we were shooting," he said. "When we came to the end of the series, we had promotional activities to engage with and we were traveling together on airplanes and got to know one another so much better."

"This is going to be a new element in Season 2, that there is a lot of mutual respect everywhere," the actor added. "If you know you can take risks, and there is a network around you that if you crash land, they will catch you, it's a wonderful feeling." Stewart pointed out that that's the way he feels now; he feels like he's "safe."

It's uncertain as to where season two is headed, but Stewart previously teased that there'll be some "startling events" coming. He also revealed that they won't be "covering the same ground," teasing an "extraordinary" season.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 is expected to arrive sometime in 2020 followed by Picard Season 2.
