On Sunday evening, the network announced that it had renewed Star Trek: Picard for a second season. "We're thrilled to announce plans for a second season earlier than the collection' debut, and we're assured that Star Trek followers and new viewers alike can be captured by the stellar forged and artistic crew's meticulously crafted story when it premieres on January 23".
Seldom do series get greenlit for a second season before a studio is able to determine the success of the first season and whether spending more money on it is worth its while. But with Picard in the show's very title, you'd have to assume that, at the very least, Patrick Stewart would be returning.
The venerated actor, best known for his roles in Star Trek and the X-Men films, placed his hands and feet in cement outside the historic TCL Chinese Theatre, in a tradition dating back to 1927.
