The NA61/SHINE detector, at the CERN SPS, is undergoing a major upgrade during the LHC Long Shutdown 2 period (2019-2021). The upgrade is essential to fulfil the requirements of new open charm measurement program. It is necessary to stress that this new physics goal can be achieve only when the readout rate will be increase by a factor 10 and the resolution of the secondary vertex in the high multiplicity tracks environment of Pb-Pb events will be improved. The following elements of the experiment are parts of the upgrade: Time Projection Chambers (TPC), Vertex Detector (VD), Beam Position Detectors (BPD), Particle Spectator Detector (PSD) and Time of Flight detectors (TOF). On top of the detectors, new Trigger and Data Acquisition (TDAQ) system is being developed. In the proposed talk the progress on design and development of new detectors and TDAQ system for NA61/SHINE experiment will be presented.
