In the end, our theory (or rather our wishful thinking) should be correct after all – at least in some way. In the first half of the now-completed second season of “Star Trek: Picard” we were still anticipating who the guardian would be supposed to help Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) stranded crew in the 21st century, we felt this was the best chance for The return of Von Wille Wheaton, as well as Wesley Crusher.

After all, a one-time prodigy turned space traveler from Star Trek: The Next Century (aka Star Trek: The Next Generation) was destined to be a being with special abilities and knowledge beyond the year 2024.

But things went differently at first. Instead, the mysterious Tallinn (Orla Brady) is revealed as a guard, but she also actively supported Picard and Co. But as we found out in the tenth and final episode of Picard’s second season thanks to a sudden appearance, It actually made Wesley pull the strings in the background. Upon his return, he makes it clear that he and his ilk are responsible for sending sentinels to observe the correct flow of time in order to save the universe from collapsing.

Surprise: Will Wheaton celebrates the return of ‘Star Trek’ in ‘Pickard’.

Nice moment for ‘Next Generation’ fans – but it should fade a bit in terms of fan service when the already confirmed third season of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ launches…

“Picard” season 3 with 7 stars (!) from “The Next Century”

“Star Trek: Picard” brings us new adventures from a Starfleet veteran named Starfleet, but it wasn’t a direct continuation of the cult sci-fi series “The Next Century” for its first two seasons, as Picard has now put together a whole new cast around for him. Hardcore fans, however, can look forward to some guest appearances from their old acquaintances – like Data (Brent Spiner), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) and Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) in Season 1, as well as Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg), Q (John de Lancy) and now Wesley in season two.

Season 3 will raise the ante again and will likely offer us the big ‘next generation’ encounter that many fans want. As announced in the first teaser, There is a reunion with all (!) former main cast members of “The Next Generation” in Season 3. So while Spiner, Sirtis and Frakes will return alongside Patrick Stewart, LeVar Burton (Geordi LaForge), Michael Dorn (Worf) and Gates McFadden (Beverly Crusher) they will make their Picard debuts.

In this way, “Star Trek: Picard” has to say goodbye with great nostalgia, as the third season will also be the last in the sci-fi series.

When will the third and final season of “Picard” be released?

It is not yet certain when exactly Picard’s big finale will take place. Since the launch of Season 3 has already completed, there will be no two-year seasonal break this time around. In fact, Picard’s third season is currently expected to begin in the first half of 2023.

However, it remains unclear if the series will continue to appear on Amazon Prime Video in this country. In the US, “Star Trek: Picard” is running on streaming service Paramount+ – and as it is known, it should find its way to Germany in 2022 and thus could also become the (new) home of “Picard” in that country.
