There is only one episode left on the first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and fans are looking forward to seeing how its inaugural run will conclude. Fortunately, the series has been renewed for a second season and now it looks like they already finished production ahead of time.
According to TrekMovie.com, the second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has wrapped filming. The status was revealed by the social media posts of producer/director Chris Fisher and writer/producer Bill Wolkoff, who both celebrated the end of production with the latter sharing a photo from the set.

The report did note that there is a possibility that the announcement was only for the main production and they might do more additional second-unit filming or pick-up shots as well as ADR during the post-production stage. Production for the season reportedly began in February. It was also announced that Paul Wesley joined the cast to play James T. Kirk.
It is exciting to hear that the season has wrapped filming as it indicates that it is very likely that it will air around this time next year. It is also an assurance that there is indeed going to be a second season which is something that we can keep in mind when we watch the first season finale later this week.
It remains to be seen if the series will be renewed for a third season. Considering the performance of the first season so far, it is all but guaranteed at this point that they will be doing a third season and we might hear updates regarding it later this year or sometime during the second season.
The first season finale of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is set to release on Paramount+ this Thursday.
