The plan at the time during the two-season pickup for the series was for season 2 and season 3 to film back-to-back. This was to be done to control costs and accommodate production schedules. This filming plan is said to still be in place despite some COVID delays and after the second season begins in February of next year, season 3 of Picard is expected to hit Paramount+ in early 2023. The writers’ room for season 3 has been up and running for more than a year.
Not much more was revealed about the third season but Seven of Nine herself Jeri Ryan took the stage to unveil more info about the upcoming second season. Season 2 will consist of 10-episodes that see Picard and his crewmates view a totalitarian future and leap back to a 21st century City of Angels to make things right.
