The highly-anticipated Star Trek Spin-Off series, Picard, isn’t set to hit the CBS All-Access streaming network until the end of January, but that isn’t going to stop the network from giving the green light to season 2.

The new series rejoins Sir Patrick Stewart as Capt. Jean-luc Picard as he takes to the stars once again on a mission to help a girl with mysterious ties to his arch-nemesis, The Borg. Joining him is an excellent ensemble of talent that includes Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora. And, because fans would revolt if it didn’t happen, it looks like most of the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast, as well as Seven of Nine will all have their roles to play.

STAR TREK: PICARD features Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” The new series will follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life. Alongside Stewart, STAR TREK: PICARD will also star Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers and Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer as supervising producer. Hanelle Culpepper directed the first two episodes of the series.
