The second season of Star Trek: Picard has finally started filming. Or has it? Production on Season 2 is being kept under wraps and Trekkies are getting more curious because of all the secrecy.
Terry Matalas in the new showrunner for Star Trek: Picard Season 2 and he's understandably hyped up for the production start. On Tuesday, February 16, Matalas tweeted about "Day One of many ..." which was a clear reference to him starting work on the second season. However, he later deleted the post and shared an explanation.
We're not sure why "Section 31" had wanted Matalas to delete the tweet considering that it didn't even include any spoilers about Star Trek: Picard Season 2. Why is the studio trying to keep the production start a huge secret? Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next few days.
Fans believe that CBS All Access is planning something big for the Star Trek franchise and are keeping the updates to a minimum. Perhaps the truth will be revealed soon.
Star Trek: Picard Season 2 was originally set to begin production in June 2020. However, filming was delayed due to COVID-19 and moved to January 2021. Jeri Ryan would later confirm that shooting has been delayed again and would start in February.
The second season of Star Trek: Picard will bring back Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, who was saved in the previous season after his consciousness was transferred to a golem body. The new season has not yet been given an official release date but is expected to premiere sometime in 2022.
