Star Trek: Picard Filming Halted After 50+ Positive COVID-19 Results

In what's starting to feel a little too much like 2021, filming on Paramount+'s Sir Patrick Stewart-starring Star Trek: Picard has been shut down over what is being reported as "more than 50" positive COVID-19 test results. The results were reported on Monday and impacted several zones- including the cast in Zone A. Production was immediately shut down on Monday and isn't expected to resume until early next week (though that will be determined as time gets closer and based on COVID factors). The season of the popular "Star Trek" series is expected to premiere sometime in February 2022.
