Fans of the “Star Trek” franchise will be thrilled to know that “Star Trek: Picard” will make its debut on January 23, 2020. However, even before it premieres, the new series was slated for season 2 and allegedly a 3rd season too.

According to sources, the show received early instructions to begin working on season 3. Despite the rumors, CBS All Access and CBS TV Studios declined to confirm any news of a third season.
