Star Trek fans get good news, but also bad news, as you’ll see below.
If you grew up with Star Trek, we have two pieces of news for you. On the one hand, Picard will be delighting you with a new season, season three, soon. On the other hand, this season will unfortunately be the last.
With a host of characters from the legendary Star Trek: The Next Generation series joining their captain, Trekkers have reason to look forward to next season.
Filmed in tandem with the recently concluded Season 2, the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard will be released on Paramount+ next year.
Which classic characters are returning in Star Trek: Picard
The third season will naturally include Patrick Stewart, but also Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn, LeVar Burton, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Jeri Ryan, plus a few other new characters we’ve already gotten used to in the first two seasons.
Star Trek: Picard is produced by CBS Studios, in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. For the third season, Stewart, Kurtzman, Roddenberry, Akiva Goldsman, Terry Matalas, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Trevor Roth, Doug Aarniokoski and Dylan Massin are executive producing.
All in all, as I mentioned in a previous article, Star Trek: Picard is the show meant to rekindle your nostalgia for yesteryear. You don’t have to look at this production as one meant to cash in, but strictly as a gift you deserve after so long a time when new Star Trek failed to capture the essentials.
What’s more, all next year, you’ll get to see a new season of Strange New Worlds, and what’s sure to catch your eye is that at least one episode is directed by the one and only Jonathan Frakes. Wherever the artist gets involved, it usually turns out very well.
