In the third and final season of the American TV show Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc Picard gets back together with the crew of the USS Enterprise. The season is made by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout, Weed Road Pictures, and Roddenberry Entertainment, and Terry Matalas is in charge of the show.
Patrick Stewart plays Picard, which is the same role he played in Star Trek: The Next Generation and other Star Trek shows and movies. Also in the cast are Jeri Ryan and Michelle Hurd. Informally, a third season of the show was given the go-ahead by January 2020 so that it could be filmed right after the second season.
Some scenes for the third season were shot during the second season’s filming, which began in California in February 2021 and continued until September, when the third season’s filming began in full. Soon after, Stewart made the season official and said that filming would end in March 2022. The producers plan for this season to be the last one, and they want it to be a good way to end Picard’s story. In April 2022, it was confirmed that LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Brent Spiner would also be back.
The season is likely to start streaming on the Paramount+ service in early 2023.
When Will the Third Season of Star Trek: Picard Come Out?
Star Trek: Picard, Season 2, Episode 6: Patrick Stewart as Picard
As was already said, filming for season three started right after season two, which wasn’t easy for anyone, especially Patrick Stewart.
After the end of season two, everyone’s favorite captain told Variety that filming for season three would be done in March 2022. Five weeks later, Sir Patrick said he was “still getting over it,” which makes us very excited about what’s going to happen next.
Sir Patrick said, “It was very tense.” “We shot the 10 episodes of season two and finished around 7 p.m. The next morning, we started shooting season three at 7 a.m. I think it went on like that for about 13 months. I know it’s been longer than a year.”
Keeping this in mind, we think the show should come out in early 2023, after post-production and previous release dates have been taken into account.As of May 2022, no official announcement has been made. As soon as we know for sure, we’ll let you know
Who’s Coming Back for Star Trek: Picard Season 3?
After what happened in season two, we expect that Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Michelle Hurd as Rafaella “Raffi” Musiker, Evan Evagora as Elnor, and Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine will all be back for season three.Alison Pill will be a big exception to this, since she recently confirmed that Agnes Jurati won’t be back for the last season:
Pill told MovieWeb, “I know that season three will be the last.” “I didn’t take part in season three, so I can’t give away much about what happened. Everyone will be able to watch with me.”
Santiago Cabrera’s role is also uncertain now that Cristobal “Chris” Rios has decided to stay in the past and live out the rest of his life there.
Luckily, some very special cast members have been lined up to take their places. Picard had already said that many of the original characters from Next Generation will play important roles in season three before season two was even over.
“I feel like it was just yesterday when my dad and I saw the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. That was almost 34 years ago. It was the first thing that got me interested in science fiction. So, it’s only right that Jean-Luc Picard’s story ends with his closest and most loyal friends from the USS Enterprise, just as it began. It wouldn’t be enough to say that it’s an honor to give these characters a proper send-off.
“The rest of the Star Trek: Picard cast and crew and I can’t wait for fans to see this final, high-stakes adventure on a starship in season three!”
What Will Happen in Star Trek: Picard Season 3?
Patrick Stewart told EW after the end of season two how the Next Generation crew might come back in season three:
“We will see them, but it won’t be at all like getting back together. It’s not just a reunion. Everyone has a job to do, and that’s about all I can say because I think season three is going to be very exciting. A lot of it will be about how the characters we’ve known for a long time have changed.”
For now, we don’t know much about the plot, but Stewart hinted that season three might be the most interesting of all:
“When I first read the end of season two, one of the things I remember saying was, “Where the hell are we going from here?” Because it seemed like there was almost an end
“I thought, “Oh no, are we going to finish early and the show will end?” for a moment. But we did not. And in many ways, I thought that season three had some of the most interesting episodes and scenes of the whole show.”
But what else will happen after that?
Well, Sir Patrick’s words seem to put an end to the world after the last batch of episodes.
“I think Picard has said his last word and looked at his colleagues for the last time,” he told Variety. “I’m happy with how we’re ending season three. Perfect. Every time I think about it, it makes me sad, but it’s great.”
When Can We Expect the Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Trailer?
If Q doesn’t come back and mess with time again, we probably won’t see anything that looks like a new trailer until early 2023.
But we are keeping our eyes and ears open and will let you know as soon as we find out more.
Marketing of Picard Season 3
On “First Contact Day,” April 5, 2022, a teaser for the new season came out. “First Contact Day” is a made-up holiday that marks the first time humans and aliens met in the Star Trek universe. The teaser showed footage of Picard looking at an old uniform and had voiceovers from the actors who were going to be back in Next Generation.
