This is the first time the Next Generation (TNG) crew has appeared together onscreen since 2002. Yes, Brent Spiner is set to return as “an old-new character.” Intriguing.
Season three will debut on Paramount+ in 2023. There are rumors it has already finished filming.

Stewart also teased that he will indeed set foot on the Enterprise-D at least once in Season 3.
