Star Trek: Picard Boldly Goes Back to the Cast of The Next Generation

Star Trek: Picard is in the middle of its second season, but the third (and final) season has already finished filming. Patrick Stewart has been dropping hints about how it’s all going to end—but now we know a little more about how it’s going to continue. Today, Paramount Plus released a teaser and cast announcement for the third season, which is getting the Next Generation gang (almost) all back together.

Happy First Contact Day, everybody!

Half of these actors have already appeared on Picard: Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis in the first season, and Brent Spiner continuing into the second (as a different character). But LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, and Gates McFadden are new additions to the season-three cast.

This little teaser video comes with bits of voice-over from all of them, hinting at what’s to come. “I am not a man who needs a legacy,” Picard says, before the other familiar voices chime in.

“I think back on those days on the Enterprise, all that danger we rushed into,” says Geordi LaForge.

“It is clear sacrifice is required again,” says Worf.

“Jean-Luc, when the galaxy comes calling, you love it,” says Beverly Crusher.

And Riker asks, “Aren’t we a little overdue for a good old-fashioned road trip?”

Given the events of season one, will Spiner somehow return as Data? Only time will tell…

Star Trek: Picard is currently airing its second season on Paramount Plus. No release date has been announced for the final season.
