Season 3 is to be the last season of Picard. The news about the last season of Picard was reported by Newspedia, last week. They stated that: “Patrick Stewart confirms Star Trek: Picard season 3, now in production, will be the Paramount+ show’s last”. SciFiPulse is here today to to offer comment on the news. Furthermore, we’ll also be discussing just how awesome Sir Patrick Stewart really is . . .
The news will obviously have a huge impact on the show. It was only a few weeks ago that Picard Season 2 was given a confirmed release date, which we reported on. Yet, now we know that there will be no more than three seasons. Last year, we gave our response to the Season Two trailer, when that dropped. This news might mean we’ll get a story arc that is set over two seasons. By the looks of things, the events will be huge, so it’s entirely possible. We could see a brilliant adventure that sees season two end with a cliffhanger!
Sir Patrick Stewart
Newspedia said in their reporting that ‘It seems likely that Stewart didn’t want to commit to another 7-season show’. Though the age of Sir Patrick Stewart may appear to a huge factor in the decision, that’s not necessarily why. Committing to just one show for many years is a big decision. Sir Patrick may well want to focus on other projects, which such a commitment would make extremely difficult.
The Right Choice?
Ultimately, we’ll only really know once we’ve seen it. However, it does seem to be a strong decision at least. Sir Patrick Stewart and Akiva Goldsman, executive producer of Picard, are reported as saying, ‘This was always the plan’. So, at least we know that the show likely has a vision for the story set out. Also, we know that we will get a definite ending, and hopefully a satisfying one. These days, many shows get canceled, and that can mean hugely disappointing for fans. Knowing that won’t happen provides a massive relief.
