Prior to its season debut, Star Trek: Picard was already renewed for a second season by CBS All Access. While fans are already excited for what's to come in season two, the show's overall length has yet to be determined; with the number of seasons possibly depending on actor Patrick Stewart.


In a recent interview with Collider, Picard executive producer Akiva Goldsman opened up a bit about the future of the show. "I think we have discussed it as both a three-season show, a five-season show, [and] a ‘let's just keep going forever' show," said Goldsman. "But Star Trek: Picard in my view will go as long as Patrick Stewart wants to do it."

Goldsman pointed out that Stewart wasn't initially interested in coming back. "And we did a lot of really good collaborative story breaking and talking, and you know," he added. "And I think he's particularly delighted in a good way about having come back." The EP also mentioned that they would "rely" on that "goodwill" until Stewart feels "he's done."

As for production on season two, Goldsman said they are supposed to start shooting in June, "which I guarantee you we will not unless the world opens tomorrow." They were "about halfway through the writing" and will start once the "world opens."

While fans wait for Picard Season 2, they could also look forward to Discovery, which is expected to arrive later this year.
