The first chapter of Star Trek: Discovery ended last night, with the second half of Season One continuing in January, but the team behind the series is already gearing up to start early work on the second season of the show.
Series executive producer and co-showrunner Aaron Harberts thanked his cast and crew on Twitter, signing off last evening noting that his work on Season 2 of Discovery begins today.
Thanks for watching @startrekcbs @StarTrekNetflix fans. Writers, cast, and crew killed it with this finale. Given that I'm old, jet-lagged, and starting work on S2 tomorrow, I'm off to bed. See you all in January! #StarTrekDiscovery

Now this most certainly does not refer to filming or active production on the next season, but more likely points to story development and early pre-production planning. Full production is not expected to resume in Toronto for some time.
There’s still a lot more to come from Star Trek: Discovery in the coming months, with the back half of the first season returning January 7.
