The final series has been filming since August 2021 and has suffered a few delays due to COVID-19 shutdowns over the past 12 months, but this past Monday it was a ‘wrap’ on Star Trek: Picard Season 3.
Star Trek Picard went Boldy Go Where No One Has Gone Before…
One of the show’s writers, Christopher Monfette was first to confirm the news via Twitter in a tweet stating:
And that’s a wrap on Season Three of #StarTrekOucard – As you watch and enjoy Season Two just know – the next and final chapter in Picard’s story is truly a remarkable thing…
And that’s a wrap on Season Three of #StarTrekPicard. As you watch and enjoy Season Two just know — the next and final chapter in Picard’s story is a truly remarkable thing. Beyond thankful to @TerryMatalas, the cast, crew and all our extraordinary writers who made it possible.

Then Jeri Ryan came along to further confirm beginning her tweet: “And just like that, it’s done, that’s a series wrap on #Star Trek Picard.”
The three-season arc is apparently the way it was ‘meant to be done’ and executive producer Terry Matalas in an interview with TrekMovie stated that the third season will be “incredibly different”.
He went on further to declare that it also features “possibly, one of the all-time great Star Trek villain performances we’ve seen to date”.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 to feature a great Star Trek villain!
That’s a lot of anticipation and expectation with big shoes to fill with such an empathic statement, but we can’t imagine Patrick Stewart returned to the character of Jean Luc Picard unless it was going to be something special.
Have you begun watching Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard yet?
Have you any ideas on what might happen in Star Trek: Picard Season 3?
