It’s been revealed that we’re going to get to see more of Sir Patrick Steward as Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Picard Season 3 as it’s just been renewed for another season.
On September 28th 1987 the world was introduced to Star Trek: The Next Generation and the infamous character of Captain Picard played by Patrick Stewart and ran until 1994.
4 motion pictures followed up to 2002, and that was the last we saw of Picard. Or so we thought.
In 2020 Patrick Stewart returned in the role in a series Picard which saw a return to much-loved characters Data, William Riker and Deanna Troi played by Brent Spiner, Johnathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis.
A surprise addition to the cast was Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine known for Star Trek: Voyager to the cast in the first season.
The new trailer (of which we’ll discuss below) was released last week for Season 2, but now it seems we’ve already received confirmation that Season 3 is also coming.
Season two will see another 10 episodes and the return of antagonist Q played by John De Lancie whom was a thorn in the crew of the Enterprise and Picard for many years.
What about Star Trek: Picard Season Two?
The trailer shows us the action straight away, in a similar tone to Q and Picard from the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation sees an encounter in which Q hurtles Picard in time.
With an alternative dystopian timeline in place, Picard seems to look to repair the past to get back to his future.
And with the confirmation of the ‘Borg Queen’ played by Alice Wersching being a major presence and tying into the past of Picard from the main series this could be fantastic.
Former Star Trek: The Next Generation cast member and Hollywood legend Whoopi Goldberg is heavily rumoured to return as Guinan in the series.
A huge fan of the original Star Trek, who called her experience in the Next Generation “one of the great experiences” of her career, Patrick Stewart reportedly invited her back in January 2021.
And in perhaps the biggest confirmation to date, in a recent interview with SFX Magazine she stated “hopefully I will be joining their cast for a little while”.
The series won’t return until February 2022 but we’ll keep you updated with further news as it comes.
