Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Release Date, Actors, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know Are All Up in the Air
The conclusion of PICARD Season 2 means that some of Jean-pals Luc’s will not be returning for the series’ third season, which premieres in 2019. Although the conclusion of Star Trek: Picard Season 2 does not directly segue into Season 3, we do know that Season 3 is racing towards us at warp speed.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 is set to premiere sometime in the future, and we have everything you need to know about it, including the likely release date, who will star in it, and what it could be about. Picard Season 2 spoilers will be revealed here.
Star Trek: Picard season 3: When will it premiere?
As previously said, season three was recorded directly following season two, which wasn’t easy for anyone involved, least of all Patrick Stewart, who was under a lot of pressure.
During an interview with Variety following the season two finale, everyone’s favorite captain says that filming for season three would be completed around March 2022. “I’m still healing from it,” he says, five weeks after the incident.
“It was quite intense,” Patrick went on to say. “We finished filming the 10 episodes of season two at seven o’clock in the evening, and we started filming season three at seven o’clock the next morning.” And it continued in this manner for around 13 months, I believe. I’m sure it’s been more than a year.”
On the good side, this implies that Picard season three will most certainly premiere in early 2023, which is a year earlier than previously anticipated. In reality, fresh episodes could conceivably air even sooner than that, although we believe that the network would like to give viewers some breathing room between the final two chapters of the season.
Actress Alison Pill has confirmed she WON’T be in Picard Season 3! “I know that season three will be the end. I wasn’t a part of season three, so I don’t have much to say about it in terms of spoilers.”

Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Cast: Who will be Returning To The?
The following cast members are expected to return for Picard season three, as a result of the events of season two: Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Michelle Hurd as Rafaella “Raffi” Musiker, Evan Evagora as Elnor, and Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, among others.
Alison Pill will be an exception to this rule, as she just stated that Agnes Jurati will not be returning for the final season of the show:
“I’m aware that season three will be the final season,” Pill admitted to MovieWeb. In terms of spoilers, I don’t have much to say about season three because I wasn’t a part of it. “I’ll be able to watch together with the rest of the audience.”
A question mark has also been raised over Santiago Cabrera’s involvement now that Cristobal “Chris” Rios has decided to remain in the past and live out the rest of his days there.
Fortunately, some very remarkable cast members have been lined up to take their places. Read on to learn more. Picard had already announced that a large number of famous characters from The Next Generation would play a significant role in season three before the season had even finished airing on CBS.
Some of them are LeVar Burton (Lt Commander Geordi La Forge), Michael Dorn (Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr Beverly Crusher), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T Riker), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), and Brent Spiner (Commander William T Riker) (Data).
In a happy statement (via Deadline), Picard showrunner Terry Matalas expressed his delight at the news:
My father and I were watching the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation when it first aired over 34 years ago, and it seemed like yesterday. It was the igniting spark that sparked my interest in science fiction. As a result, it is quite appropriate that the story of Jean-Luc Picard concludes with his dearest and most faithful colleagues from the USS Enterprise, in order to pay tribute to the beginning. A compliment to say that giving these characters a dignified send-off has been an honor would be an understatement.
This final, high-stakes, starship-bound adventure in season three is something that the entire Star Trek: Picard team and I are looking forward to sharing with fans!
🚨CONFIRMED: NO ELNOR FOR PICARD S3

Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Ending:
However, despite the fact that the Picard Season 2 finale, “Farwell,” was rather low-key, it was significant in that two important characters were written out of the show, and a long-time Next Generation favorite was killed off.
After securing the successful launch of the Europa Mission, Picard and the crew of the La Sirena must figure out how to return to the year 2401, which is a difficult task. It turns out that Q (John de Lancie) is genuinely concerned about the well-being of everyone, and as his final act before dying, he sends them all back to a slightly changed version of the present. To be clear, Q — a god of space — is no longer alive.
We discovered that Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill), the mysterious hooded Borg Queen from Episode 1, “The Star Gazer,” is actually Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill), a 400-year-old Borg who is in command of a more benevolent Borg who is attempting to prevent some sort of explosive galactic phenomenon from destroying several planets.
Rios (Santiago Cabrera) is still alive in the twenty-first century, and Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) later informs Picard that Rios died while fighting for medical supplies in the past. Afterward, Picard reconnects with Laris (Orla Brady) and persuades her not to leave him, thus rekindling their relationship, which concludes the episode. The majority of Season 2’s stories are concluded at the conclusion of the season’s finale, which raises various doubts about what will be the focus of Season 3.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3: Plot of Season 3
Considering that the new Borg Queen implies that some sort of bizarre new transwarp conduit is part of a larger “puzzle,” it’s a safe guess that something will emerge from it in Picard Season 3.
Aside from that educated prediction, there are only two things we know for certain about Picard Season 3: 1. Terry Matalas, co-showrunner of Star Trek: The Next Generation, has revealed that the show will feature the return of the whole principal cast and will be a “high stakes, starship-bound adventure.”
It’s also likely that Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) may eventually become a member of Starfleet after years of speculation. As a result of Picard’s “field commission” in the Season 2 finale, she effectively assumes command of the USS Stargazer. The Stargazer’s commanding officer in Season 3 will be Seven. In the ninth episode, “Hide and Seek,” Raffi claims that Seven should have been promoted to captain if Starfleet had allowed her to join. Now that Picard has effectively incorporated Seven into Starfleet, it’s probable that she’ll continue to serve in the organization in Season 3.
