It is being reported that Star Trek: Picard has been picked up by CBS All Access for a second season. The good news comes five weeks ahead of the sci-fi drama's debut on the streaming service, and comes in the wake of the series being selected to receive a tax credit towards a new season from the California Film Commission.

Star Trek: Picard is the second entry in the storied franchise to launch on CBS All Access, following 2017's Star Trek: Discovery, which will be heading into its third season next year.

Picard takes place 20 years after the events that occurred in 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis. With life in the galaxy vastly different since the dissolution of the Romulan Empire, retired admiral Jean-Luc Picard embarks on the next chapter of his life.

Star Trek: Picard premieres January 23 on CBS All Access, with new episodes set to release on a weekly basis. Look for Season 2 in late 2020 or early 2021.
