They’re Never Without Hope: The next-generation cast has returned in the first teaser for Star Trek: Picard Season 3.
Star Trek: Picard first debuted in 2020, following Paramount’s expansion of the franchise with Discovery and Short Treks, ahead of Lower Decks, Prodigy, and Strange New Worlds.
As the title suggests, the series sees Patrick Stewart reprising his beloved role as Jean-Luc Picard, the retired Starfleet general who previously commanded the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Unfortunately, Star Trek: Picard is coming to an end in its third season next year. However, fans can look forward to seeing some familiar faces in the final chapter.
The next generation cast returns in the Star Trek: Picard Season 3 teaser
The Star Trek: Picard Season 3 teaser was revealed during the franchise panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
“As long as you and your crew stand firm, you’re never without hope,” Stewart says in the teaser, while the cast of The Next Generation makes a brief appearance.
In Season 3, Gates McFadden will play Dr. Beverly Crusher, Jonathan Frakes as William River, LeVar Burton as Geordi La Forge, Michael Dorn as Worf, Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi, and Brent Spiner in an undisclosed role instead of playing Data again.
In terms of what to expect, executive producer Alex Kurtzman said Season 3 will “slowly” show the old cast [coming] together…we wanted to take the time to see where they are now.”
“We didn’t want to have cameos, we wanted to have serious roles,” he added, with Stewart saying, “I want to do this show, I don’t want to repeat old things.”
However, Stewart said he’s open to making a feature film starring his Next Generation co-stars, which Kurtzman says is possible “if you like it.”
Kurtzman also called Wrath of Khan the season’s biggest influence and teased Picard’s final opponent. “She’s amazing,” he said.
Star Trek: Picard is slated for release in 2023.
