Paramount+ announced this evening that Star Trek: Picard has been picked up for a third season. The early renewal comes on Star Trek Day, which also confirmed that the sci-fi drama will return for its sophomore run in early 2022.

The series is one of three entries in the storied franchise currently airing on the streaming service; the other two being 'Star Trek: Discovery' and the animated 'Star Trek: Lower Decks'.

Picard takes place 20 years after the events that occurred in 2002's 'Star Trek: Nemesis' film. 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 is slated to return for Season 2 in February 2022. Look for Season 3 sometime in 2023.
