Watch Larry David Lose It (Again) in this Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Teaser

  Watch Larry David Lose It (Again) in this Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Teaser HBO has announced when the show will returnOK, OK, it's obvious enough that this moment is meant to be a metaphor for what fans have been through while waiting for this season to come through -- it has been almost two years since the show was renewed, after all -- but there's still some truth to the exact irritation at hand here. Who doesn't get a nagging case of side-eye once in a while over how long that toaster takes to finish the job? Doesn't it feel like the robot powers that be are just toying with us sometimes? Larry gets it. Classic Curb.

In what will bring great joy to fans of the once Next Generation captain and surprise to almost no one in Hollywood, Star Trek: Picard has been given the green light for a second season before its series debut next month.

Like the first season that will premiere on CBS All Access on January 23, Season 2 of the Patrick Stewart-led Picard looks to be a 10-episode order for the streamer. As a part of that second season, the latest venture in the Alex Kurtzman marshaled Trekverse has been allocated over $20.4 million in California tax incentives.

CBS declined to comment on a Season 2 for the Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora co-starring series. However, with plans already publicly in place for current showrunner Michael Chabon to shift roles in a second season, the Next Gen alum Jonathan Frakes and Brent Spiner and Jeri Ryan featuring Picard was clearly going for that next final frontier with seems sure to be a big draw and a flagship show for the relatively new and bulking up subscription-based streamer.

Robert Walker Jr., 'Star Trek' Actor, Dead at 79

  Robert Walker Jr., 'Star Trek' Actor, Dead at 79 Actor Robert Walker Jr. has died. Walker was the son of late Hollywood stars, actor Robert Walker and Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Jones. He was 79 years old.StarTrek.com reported the sad news on Friday, citing his family. Star Trek's official Twitter account also tweeted about his death."We are saddened to report the passing of Robert Walker Jr., the actor who played the titular role in Star Trek: The Original Series episode 'Charlie X.' #StarTrek #StarTrekFamily," the tweet reads.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walker died on Thursday in Malibu, California. The cause of death is unknown.

Certainly, the huge reaction that Picard received when the resurrection of the philosopher-captain was first announced in Las Vegas last year and the tax credits made public today were a cold hard cash indication that the CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment produced series was going to engage further, to paraphrase Jean-Luc himself.

That $20.45 million Season 2 of Picard snagged is the most any small screen project has ever been awarded in the California Film Commission run program since then Governor Jerry Brown officially expanded the credits to $330 million a year overall and ditched the much-criticized lottery system in September 2014.

In comparison, the much-anticipated Michael Chabon showrun first season of Picard was awarded $15.6 million this time last year. While a not insignificant chunk of change, that $15.6 million wasn’t even the most awarded series of that November 2018 allocation period, with top dollars of $15.8 million going to the third season of Fox’s Star Trek homage of sorts, The Orville.

  ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Renewed For Season 4 By Amazon Amazon has renewed the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for a fourth season. The renewal, following the Dec. 6 Season 3 premiere, also comes just days after the series received two Golden Globe nominations, for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and best actress for star Rachel Brosnahan. “We were thrilled“We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we do not have to pack up and vacate the premises,” said Creator and Executive Producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and Executive Producer Daniel Palladino.

Similar to Star Trek: Discovery,Star Trek: Picard will drop new episodes weekly for Season 1 on CBS All Access and is expected to do the same for the late 2020 or early 2021 penciled in Season 2. With Star Trek: Picard having recently wrapped up its first season, sources tell me that a Season 2 could be making the jump to production warp speed as early as next spring.

First having given fans a real taste of the series at San Diego Comic-Con last summer, the cast and producers of Picard stepped around the issue of a Season 2 at the Brazilian Comic-Con in Sao Paulo last week.

Now they don’t have to be so light footed.

Star Trek: Picard debuts in North America on the same day that the 2020 Sundance Film Festival launches on CBS All Access. The very next day, on January 24, the series will hit more than 200 countries and territories on Amazon Prime Video.
