Star Trek: Picard Season 3: Release Date, Trailer, Cast, and Everything We Know So Far
Finally, the old gang is back.
Star Trek: The Next Generation fans have been patiently waiting for their favorite characters to return since the first season of Star Trek: Picard. The promise (real or imagined) of finding out what happened to characters like Beverly Crusher and Geordi La Forge seems to have finally come true. This time around it seems like old favorites are back, and hopefully this time they're not just some fan service cameo.

Watch the Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Trailers
the first A trailer was released in celebration of Star Trek Day. The trailer is a short one-minute trailer, but it packs in some great tidbits from the show. Exciting to see our favorite crew member back. We get our first glimpse of Geordi, Worf, and Beverly, but not much is known about the plot. The theme is as long as you have a united crew, hope still exists.
An additional sneak peek was released, revealing the cast names for the upcoming season. This sneak peek shows Picard donning his old uniform and then size one for one last "good old fashioned road trip." The question is where are they going on this road trip?
The next trailer is a 2-minute, 34-second trailer that confirms the existence of Lore, Vadic, and other long-time enemies of Picard's former crew. It appears that the villains of the Star Trek: The Next Generation franchise are banding together to form their own "Injustice League" against the now-reunited crew.
What follows is a sneak peek at one of every Star Trek fan's greatest moments, The Ship Reveals. So far, seven Nine is the commander of the Titan, one of the most powerful ships in all of Star Trek canon. This picture shows the old crew respecting their relationship with Jean-Luc and coming together for one last adventure, into the unknown.
Recently, Paramount released a new cut from Season 3 during an episode of The Ready Room, the last episode of the entire Star Trek series hosted by Wil Wheaton. Here's the full episode (you can skip to 28:50 to watch the clip), and for international audiences, it's also available on the Star Trek website: ^What we know about Season 3 so far revolves around the cast, And it's an all-star Star Trek cast you can ask for. We have veterans from Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and even returning characters from Star Trek: Picard. Sir Patrick Stewart will return as Jean-Luc Picard, Michelle Hurd will return as Rafi Musik and Jerry Lane will return as Seven of Nine. Star Trek: Picard veterans Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal Rios) and Isa Briones (Soji) will not be returning. This brings us to the obvious step Some characters from the previous two seasons were established and taken a step back in time.
Who Is in the Cast of Star Trek: Picard Season 3?
This step back in time takes Star Trek fans nearly 20 years, almost back to the cast of Star Trek: Nemesis. Our crew of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) is back. Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis will both return as William T. Riker and Deanna Troi. Since then, we've confirmed the return of faces old and new, such as Gates McFadden as Beverly Crusher, Michael Dorn as Wolfe Worf, LeVar Burton as Geordi LaForge, and even Wil Wheaton as Wesley Crusher. These are just the confirmed returns, with more rumored or hoped for.
Actress Denise Crosby teases the return of ill-fated Security Office Tasha Yar from Season 1 of The Next Generation. She also played the villain Sierra on The Next Generation and Star Trek. We don't know how she'll return, but Crosby said "you'll see Tasha Yar, but I won't tell you how." Fans also hope Colm Meaney returns as veteran Miles O'Brien, and give Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans have some well-deserved recognition.
No official synopsis has been released describing the upcoming season, but some tidbits can be gleaned from a series of cast and trailers and other parts of the series. Season three should feature a brand new (or what's best described as unknown) villain. There has been speculation that Serra will be one of the main villains. She's pretty strong in her few next-generation appearances, and the entire lore in the game is built with Sera as one of the main antagonists. However, for now this is just speculation.
What Do We Know About Star Trek: Picard Season 3?
However sure are the events of previous seasons (this is your final spoiler alert). In season one, we learned about Soji as Data's daughter and how the destruction of Romulus set off a chain of events that culminated in the outlawing of all synthetic life. Picard found himself in the midst of that interdimensional chaos, dying in the process. Now Picard has a synthetic body and his nemesis Q (John Delancey) and Borg Queen (Anne Worthing) return. After an interesting time travel back to the 21st century, we see Picard come to terms with his past and how he became who he is now. Dr. Urati also joined the Borg Queen and created a Federation-friendly collective, allied with Picard again in the present. This cost Picard several key allies. Either way, we've seen some progress. Seven of Nine returned the Starfleet uniforms, and Picard seemed to be on good terms again. It looks like he's going back to his crew roots.
Showrunners Rod Roddenberry and Alex Kurtzman, along with writer-producer Terry Mataras, will return for the final season.
In short, Picard has no future. This is Picard's final season, and no spinoffs have been announced yet. Between the aging of the cast and the amount of content we already had in that period, it seems like this is the last time we'll see many of these characters.
