The Star Trek franchise has so many offshoots and timelines, it can be hard to keep track, but the spin-off TV series, Star Trek: Picard has just finished shooting on its third and final season. The team shot season 2 and season 3 at the same time, with season 2 just recently dropping on streaming service Paramount Plus on March 3, 2022.
The sci-fi series, which sees Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, former captain of the S.S. Enterprise. Now retired, Picard just can’t help but get sucked back into more space adventures, and the show has reunited him with friends and foes of the past throughout its run.
In a tweet on March 8, 2022, co-executive producer of the series, Christopher Monfette, confirmed production had wrapped on season 3 and promised a “remarkable” final season to Star Trek: Picard. After heavy delays due to Covid-19, which saw 50 people catch the virus, it’s great to see that the team was able to get back to work and complete the shoot they had started.
It seems Patrick Stewart has been a very busy man lately. Not only has he been working hard to complete the Picard journey, but he is all but confirmed to be one of the many rumoured cameos in Doctor Strange 2, as his X-Men character, Professor Charles Xavier, looks set to arrive in the MCU.
