In the Romulans and the Borg, the first season of the show that bears his name pitted Jean-Luc Picard against two of the most enduring adversaries of his Starfleet career. In Star Trek: Picard season 2, he’ll encounter another – the omnipotent, god-like Q.
With most of the main story arcs of the show’s first year now wrapped up, the Star Trek: The Next Generation legend, and his new crew onboard La Sirena, are free to boldly go in exciting new directions – and who knows, maybe seek out new life and new civilizations…
Star Trek: Picard season 2 release date: 2022
The Star Trek: Picard season 2 shoot was originally supposed to get underway in June 2020, until Covid-19 put everything on hiatus. Production on season 2’s 10-episode run eventually got underway in California in February 2021.
That delay means we’ll see Star Trek: Picard season 2 after Star Trek: Discovery season 4 has left Spacedock in late 2021. The First Contact Day virtual event on April 5, 2021, confirmed that Jean-Luc’s second solo voyage will debut in 2022 on Paramount Plus in the US and on Amazon Prime Video in other territories. The streaming service is yet to narrow the time period down further, but we’d expect to see it in the first half of the year.

Star Trek: Picard season 2 cast: Q, Guinan, and other returning characters
This is the crew manifest for Star Trek: Picard season 2 as it stands:
- Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard
- Alison Pill as Dr. Agnes Jurati
- Isa Briones as Soji Asha
- Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker
- Santiago Cabrera as Cris Rios
- Evan Evagora as Elnor
- Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine
- John de Lancie as Q

The show was always built around the star power of Sir Patrick Stewart, and he’ll be joined in the Star Trek: Picard season 2 cast by his regular La Sirena crew: Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera (Cris Rios), Evan Evagora (Elnor), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), and Isa Briones (Soji Asha). Star Trek: Voyager veteran Jeri Ryan will also be back as former Borg Seven of Nine – presumably she’ll be looking to do something to help the Borg Cube (and its residents) stranded on Coppelius.
In addition to the returning John de Lancie as Q, there’s another veteran of The Next Generation returning to the Final Frontier – Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan.
