Fans have been looking forward to the second season of Star Trek: Picard after the shocking ending of the first season and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds as it would follow Capt. Christopher Pike's next adventure in the final frontier after the events of the second season of Discovery. Now, after years of waiting, we finally know when they are going to premiere.
Paramount+ has announced that the second season of Star Trek: Picard will premiere on Thursday, March 3 with new episodes dropping weekly afterward while Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will premiere on Thursday, May 5 with new episodes also dropping weekly. Per TrekCore.com, the second season premiere episode of Picard will air at the same time as the eleventh episode of Discovery season 3 while the premiere episode of Strange New Worlds will air at the same time as the second season finale of Picard. You can check the schedule here:
It's been two years since the first season of Picard aired so it's great that we finally have the release date for the second season. Of course, we had a longer wait than usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was also around two years ago when Strange New Worlds was officially announced and it's also great that it finally has a release date which will come around three years after Pike, Spock, and Number One made their appearances in the second season of Discovery.
If you also look at the schedule, it looks like we will be getting new Star Trek content every week from now until July 7 at the latest. There's also the third season of Lower Decks and the second half of the first season of Prodigy which is coming later this year.
You can watch all the new Star Trek shows on Paramount+ with new episodes of Prodigy currently airing every Thursday.
