Background information

  • With rumors of a third season already floating around, the second season of Picard was officially announced by CBS All Access on 10 January 2020 before the debut of season one, [2] in spite of it having been previously confirmed that lead Patrick Stewart had been signed for at least two seasons. [3]
  • Filming for season 2 began on 16 February 2021. [4]
  • Season 2 was filmed back-to-back with season 3 in order to control costs and accommodate production schedules. This became viable when season 3 was confirmed in September 2021. [5]
  • The first season 2 teaser was revealed on 5 April 2021 during "First Contact Day", after which during a panel almost all season one cast members were reaffirmed whereas John de Lancie's return as Q was officially announced, [6] following rumors to that effect that had been floating around since December the year previously. [7]
  • Similarly, the "quasi-formal" confirmation by performer Michelle Hurd on 23 November 2021 that Whoopi Goldberg was to reprise her role as Guinan (the franchise itself had not issued an official announcement to that effect), [8] was not much of a surprise either ever since Stewart had in person formally invited Goldberg to join the series' second season on the ABC talkshow The View on 22 January 2020, purportedly with the blessing of franchise head Alex Kurtzman. [9]
  • Filmed in Los Angeles, the production crew numbered around 450 staffers, reportedly one of the largest television crews by 2021. [10]
  • On 3 January 2022 production was halted for an indeterminate period of time after more than fifty production crew members tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. [11] The production disruption only affected the production of season 3, as the principal photography for season 2 had already wrapped on 29 August 2021. [12]
