Michael Chabon will not be the showrunner for Season Two of Star Trek: Picard if it is renewed for a second season, as it is expected to be.
Instead, Chabon and wife Ayelet Waldman will write and executive produce The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, an adaption of the 2000 novel penned by Chabon. This will be their first project after signing a multi-year production deal with CBS TV Studios.
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is “an epic tale of love, war and the birth of America’s comic book superhero obsession in big-band-era New York.”
The Showtime adaptation will also be executive produced by two familiar names; Akiva Goldsman and Alex Kurtzman.
Chabon will still be involved with Star Trek: Picard in Season Two as an executive producer.
