A new trailer for the upcoming third and final season of Star Trek: Picard has been released, and fans of The Next Generation will love everything about this latest sneak peek.
Many of Jean-Luc's old allies return, this time to face Amanda Plummer's villainous Vadic, the alien Captain of the warship Shrike who is looking to lay waste to the United Federation of Planets. We see that a distress call from Crusher is what prompts the iconic crew to return to action, though there will also be some new additions to the Paramount+ series.
Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut is set to play Ensign Sidney La Forge, the eldest daughter of Burton's Geordi La Forge and helmsman of the U.S.S. Titan. Mica Burton, LeVar Burton's real-life daughter, will take on the role of Geordi's youngest child, Alandra La Forge.
Talking at a panel for Star Trek: Picard at New York Comic Con, Sir Patrick Stewart strongly hinted that his time as Jean-Luc may not be over. "I understand there are Paramount+ people here...and Paramount Pictures...we could still make a movie," the legendary actor teased.
Fans are bound to be excited about that promise, especially with Paramount Pictures still struggling to figure out what they should do with the franchise on the big screen. Going back to television, though, and a trailer for Star Trek Discovery season 5 was also released this weekend. You can see that here.
Picard features Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and follows this iconic character into the next chapter of his life. LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan, and Michelle Hurd also star.
The final season premieres on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023, exclusively on Paramount+.
