Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Resumes Filming After COVID Shutdown
Star Trek: Picard officially resumed filming after the production shutdown caused by COVID-19. After more than 50 people tested positive for the virus, filming was stopped earlier in the week. Filming was also disrupted on other shows like NCIS or Chicago Fire.
Patrick Stewart stars in the sci-fi series. Filming is mainly in Los Angeles, where Omicron variant cases are increasing rapidly. Picard has not been without delays. The show was originally scheduled to be filmed in 2020, but the virus forced the schedule into 2021. Picard season 3, which is scheduled to film in tandem with season 2, has also been approved. The co-showrunners Terry Matalas, Akiva Goldsman will be directing both seasons.

A recent tweet from Matalas confirmed that production has resumed on Picard. Despite the circumstances, the showrunner was empathetic about his return to the set. He wrote: ” Back to it this AM!” The tweet was accompanied by an image of a screen with the words “EPS Network” and what appears to be the layout for a Starfleet vessel. See the full post below.

It is unclear if further delays will prevent the release of Picard season 2. Although it is undoubtedly disappointing for both the studio and the fans, these delays will hopefully feed viewers’ thirst for Star Trek. This could provide potential ratings boost both for Picard or Star Trek Discovery. Season 2 has been delayed again, but fans can be optimistic that season 3 will be released in 2023. Production is expected to continue smoothly. Star Trek Picard season 2 is still on track to debut in February on Paramount+.
