People have already returned to work on Star Trek: Picard.
A few days ago it was reported that the set of Star Trek: Picard was shut down momentarily due to the fact that 50+ cast and crew members tested positive for the virus. Due to the series star being in his 80s (Patrick Stewart), that was probably the right move. Yet, it appears as though it wasn’t a long as a layoff as expected.
It was expected to take a few more days for everyone to get back to work for Picard, but now the word is that work has commenced once again. It’s unknown if it’s a skeleton crew or what, but Picard showrunner Terry Matalas tweeted out that he was already back at it just days after 50+ members of the crew tested positive for COVID-19.
More than likely the crew is working without a bunch of key members as they wait at home, though that’s just speculation on our part.
Star Trek: Picard showrunner hints at a new ship
Matalas’ tweet about returning to work carried a very unique image that had a very familiar interface design. In the above tweet, you can see what looks like a starship interface of some sort, that has something to do with an EPS Network.
The layout, button design, and overall feel of the interface seem to suggest that season two of Picard will in fact be aboard a new ship for the season.
One of the biggest complaints that fans had for season one, besides the abysmal tone, was that the show did everything it could to not be a Startrek show by placing it as far away from Starfleet as humanly possible.
There are quite rumors and rumblings that claim season two will have Picard back with Starfleet in some capacity and this image may be proof of that rumor.
