In February 2019, during the development of the series Star Trek: Picard, star Patrick Stewart said we are set up for perhaps three years of this show. Showrunner Michael Chabon and the writers were informed in January 2020 to have begun results on a second and third season, with Terry Matalas merging them to fill the gap that would be developed by Chabon’s planned departure after that year. CBS officially announced the second season then but did not confirm an everyday third season green light. The latter permitted the second and third seasons to be filmed back-to-back, which helped save prices and simplify scheduling. Stewart officially revealed the season in September 2021, shortly after filming had started. By February 2022, the producers had arranged to end the series with the third season. Matalas acted as the only showrunner for the season.
The season is anticipated to premiere on Paramount+ in the United States on February 16, 2023, and run for 10 episodes until April 20. Each episode of Picard is revealed in Canada by Bell Media on the exact day as the Paramount+ release, on the thing channels CTV Sci-Fi Channel (English) and Z (French) before pouring on Crave. Amazon Prime Video courses the episodes within 24 hours of their U.S. release in over 200 other nations and territories around the world. Matalas said in August 2022 that the season would be prepared for release later that year and he had pushed to move the launch to Christmas 2022, but Paramount+ wanted it to be released in 2023.
Filming for the second season started on February 16, 2021, with some third-season locations being filmed at the same time. The exposition was taking place in California where the sequel received tax incentives to resume filming there after the first season. The second and third seasons had one of the biggest television series crews at the time with more additional than 450 crewmembers. Due to the Coronavirus disease pandemic, strict procedures were followed on set, and cast and crew associates were regularly tested. Principal photography for the second season concluded on September 2, and the show then segued fully into filming the third.
