Where can I watch the new season of Star Trek Picard?
The season premiered on the streaming service CBS All Access on January 23, 2020, and ran for 10 episodes through March 26. It was released to new viewership records for the service and generally positive reviews from critics who highlighted Stewart’s performance and the focus on character over action. However, they criticized the season’s slow pace and complex story, and its darker tone than previous Star Trek series was controversial with critics and franchise fans alike.
