Star Trek Picard wrapped its second on Paramount+ earlier this month. In the second season, we saw the emergence of a detrimental anomaly that could potentially harm the entire galaxy. Jean-Luc Picard was the Starfleet’s last hope to save the fate of the galaxy. Since then, fans can’t wait for the return of the legendary Starfleet commander in Star Trek Picard Season 3.
Paramount’s Star Trek Picard is a sci-fi space adventure series set in the Star Trek universe. The show follows Jean-Luc Picard living peacefully in his vineyard several years after his retirement. But soon, things change when a young lady named Dahj comes requesting his help.
When Is Star Trek Season 3 Coming?
The second season of the show Star Trek Picard premiered on Paramount+ on March 3, 2022, to May 5, 2022. However, Paramout+ did not wait for the second season’s end to announce the renewal of the third season. Long before the second season premiere, Paramount announced Star Trek Picard Season 3 on September 8, 2021. The production for the third season began in late 2021.
Meanwhile, on March 8, 2022, showrunner Christopher Monfette Tweeted, “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.”
His tweet confirms that the third season will be the final outing of the series. Although the release date of the show is not yet announced, we expect it to release around early 2023.
Star Trek Picard Season 3: Expected Storyline?
The creators of Star Trek Picard have said that each season is a standalone story. However, Picard season 2 left important narrative strands that would surely be explored in season 3. Dr. Adam Soong presented a top-secret folder called “Project Khan” in 2024 Los Angeles, hinting at the evil eugenicist perhaps becoming a genetically produced supervillain in Star Trek Picard season 3.
Soong might also be the mystery menace responsible for the creation of a ‘transwarp’ conduit, which the compassionate Borg Queen has agreed to protect. Season 3 might be an epic end to Jean-Luc Picard and TNG, given that there must be a worthy antagonist that the united characters of Star Trek The Next Generation and Star Trek Picard must face.
The cast of the Star Trek spin off series stars sir Patrick Stewart in the titular role of Jean-Luc Picard and Jeri Ryan playing Seven of Nine. The show also stars Brent Spiner as Adam Soong, Michelle Hurd playing Raffi Musiker, and Santiago Cabrera appearing as Cristóbal Rios. The show also features Evan Evagora in the role of Elnor, Isa Briones in the role of Soji, and Orla Brady playing Tallinn.
In addition, John de Lancie as Q, Jonathan Frakes playing William Riker, and Marina Sirtis playing Deanna Troi. Furthermore, in the show, LeVar Burton enacts Geordi La Forge, Michael Dorn plays Worf, and Gates McFadden appears as Beverly Crusher.
When the space adventure series returns with Star Trek Picard Season 3, we expect the majority of the show’s cast to reprise their respective roles. There is no shortage of intriguing characters in the Star Trek universe. So, we can also expect a few new characters to make their way in the third season.
