This is possibly the best news for Star Trek fans in years: the stars of Star Trek: The Next Generation are being reunited for one last mission together on Star Trek: Picard for its third and final season.
It hit Twitter just hours ago. Joining Patrick Stewart, John De Lancie, and Brent Spiner from Star Trek: The Next Generation are nearly the entire original main cast of the show. It’s just been announced that Levar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, and Marina Sirtis are joining the cast of the popular Paramount Plus streaming series.
We are beside ourselves. They’re getting the whole band back together for one last hurrah, and we are here for it.
Incoming transmission from #StarTrekPicard season 3! ?
Star Trek: Picard streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and is distributed concurrently by Paramount Global Content Distribution on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories. In Canada, it airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave.
The upcoming third season of Star Trek: Picard will be the last one, but a new trailer reveals that they’re going out in spectacular fashion by bringing back the entire Star Trek: Next Generation crew for their first adventure since 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis.
The trailer shows Jean-Luc Picard taking his old Starfleet uniform and communicator out of storage as we hear the voices of old comrades like Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton), Worf (Michael Dorn), Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), and Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis). Frakes and Sirtis appeared briefly in the first season of Star Trek: Picard, but bringing all these other characters back is the icing on the cake.
This may well be the last time we see Sir Patrick as Jean-Luc. He’s not getting any younger, and because of the pandemic, they had to shoot Season 2 and Seaon 3 back to back. It’s a challenge for a man his age (he’s 81). He has said in an interview with Rolling Stone that he’s ready for some down time.
