Paramount + series Star Trek: Picard would be expected to appear on the streaming platform in February, but in an updated release schedule, the second season of the Patrick Stewart-star series will now only make its appearance on March 3rd. After the premiere, new episodes of the popular series will be added every Thursday. Star Trek: Picard had to halt production on the third season recently after a large number of positive Covid tests among the cast and team, and although it may have an impact on the release of that season, it is unknown what led to the delay in Season 2s arrival.
Patrick Stewart once again plays the role of Jean-Luc Picard, the character he played throughout his time Star Trek: The Next Generation. The new series focuses on Picard in his later years, but being older does not mean that he leads a quiet life, and the new season suggests a time-traveling plot and the return of John de Lancie as Picard’s former arch-enemy Q, is going to make sure that this season will make the forerunner for the first time.
Actor and director Jonathan Frakes, who starred in two episodes of Picard’s premiere season and also two other directors, recently hosted a reunion of Next generation characters when William Riker, played by Frakes, has a scene with Lancie’s Q and co Next generation star Brent Spiner. He told CinemaBlend:
“I have a scene with him and Soong, which Brent [Spiner] play on Picard, “Frakes tells CinemaBlend.” And this is one of my favorite scenes of the season. De Lancie has always been one of my favorite friends, but also one of my favorite actors. He’s beautifully rolled as Q, and Q is one of the most intricate villains, without a doubt, with the Borg Queen. It’s always a pleasure to work with John on and off the set. The day I know is going to be fascinating because he is a fascinating man in terms of his worldview and his experience as a sailor. It’s always a good day in terms of interceptions. ”
Star Trek: Picard Season 2 will bring an alternate reality to the spin-off and only time travel can fix things.
The trailer for Star Trek: Picard’s return made its debut in September as part of Paramount +’s Star Trek Day event, and Patrick Stewart himself introduced the first look at the new episodes, which will see the casting of characters drawn into an alternative reality and having to return to the 21st century to fix things. While fans have been waiting for the series’ arrival since that trailer dropped, they now only have a little longer to wait than was initially expected.
Star Trek: Picard Season Two cast includes Patrick Stewart, Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Jeri Ryan, Orla Brady, John de Lancie, Annie Wersching and Brent Spiner. The series was written by co-exhibitors Akiva Goldsman and Terry Matalas, who also act as executive producers alongside Stewart, Alex Kurtzman, Trevor Roth and others.
