Picard ‘resume production after major COVID outbreak

Star Trek: Picard

Produced on Star Trek: Picard hit a big hurdle this week when a major COVID-19 outbreak went through the filming set, with a total of 50 crew members having tested positive. Paramount Plus was forced to pause filming, but it was note at the time that the producers are trying to get things back on track as soon as possible, with the hope that filming could begin as early as next week, if not before.

Turns out they were correct in this prediction as it has now been confirmed that Picard was back in front of the camera this weekend. Showrunner Terry Matalas made the announcement on Twitter recently, by sharing a fascinating set of photos of Starfleet ship displays.

Things are looking bad for the hit streaming series, which stars Sir Patrick Stewart as the fan-favorite Jean-Luc Picard, just a little bit there. The COVID outbreak happened on the first day back from the holiday season, no doubt because people traveled a lot during their Christmas break. With the top star at the age of 81, shutting down production immediately was the only option available to them, but luckily, things now seem to be back on track, just a few days behind schedule. .

And Picard fans need not worry that this will affect the release of season two. Second letter and the third day seasons are being filmed continuously, with the second year’s run actually ending filming last fall. That means it has to be done right by the date it is scheduled to start this February. Assuming work on season three goes smoothly from now on, that will likely be in February 2023. It’s currently unclear whether that will be the ending or whether a fourth is on the cards.

The 10-episode second season of Star Trek: Picard, which features the return of John de Lancie as Q, will premiere on Paramount Plus next month.
