Well, it seems like we aren’t the only ones who are excited because the network has now announced that they’ll be picking the show up for at least one more season. Here’s the announcement from CBS.
“The energy and excitement around the premiere of STAR TREK: PICARD has reached a magnitude greater than all of us at CBS All Access could have hoped for.
