### Description

After the successful conclusion of the PICO 60 experiment, the new "right-side-up", or inverted bubble chamber, PICO 40L, will start operation later in 2018. We will present the current status and the experimental plans for PICO 40L.

The PICO collaboration is also in the design and early procurement phase for the PICO 500 experiment, a tonne scale dark matter bubble chamber that aims to cover the remaining phase space above the neutrino floor with C$_3$F$_8$ as active liquid. We will report the latest detector design and the plans for installation and operation at SNOLAB.
