Patrick Stewart Says Star Trek: Picard Season 3 May Not Be the End

at .

Star Trek: Picard's third and final season is set to premiere Thursday, February 16, but it may not be the end.

During the final panel for the show at Paramount+'s TCA press tour, Patrick Stewart hinted that more drama could be on the horizon.

"There's still potential to return in the future after this season, despite it being the final one," the actor said during the panel in response to exec producer Alex Kurtzman saying there could be more.

"There is still enormous potential for matters in what we can do, and there are doors left open, and we didn't close all of them," Stewart dished.

Thankfully, Kurtzman feels the same, adding that "anything is possible."

But it sounds like any future iterations hinge on the success of the planned final season.

"If the show blows the doors off the place, and we're certainly hoping it will as we're very proud of Season 3, who knows."

Paramount+ dropped new key art during the panel, and it included the term "final season," but maybe the characters will show up on other Star Trek-related projects.

Star Trek: Picard features Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and follows this iconic character into the next chapter of his life.

LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan, and Michelle Hurd star alongside Patrick Stewart in the third and final season of the hit Paramount+ original series.

Picard dropped its final season teaser at San Diego Comic-Con in the summer.

It highlighted some significant changes as the story prepared for its endgame.

However, will we get much closure now that we know the cast and creatives are interested in continuing the story?

Star Trek: Picard Quotes

I am Worf, son of Mogh, House of Martok, son of Sergei, House of Rozhenko, Bane to the Duras Family, slayer of Gowron. I have made some chamomile tea. Do you take sugar?


Riker: You know, we have saved the galaxy. More than a few times.
Picard: And, hopefully, they’ll remember.
Shaw: Or. They might remember that time that someone hot dropped the saucer section of the Enterprise-D on a planet. Or. That time that someone threw the Prime Directive out the window so they could snog a villager on Ba’ku. Or the time that you boys nearly wiped out all of humanity by creating a time paradox in the Devron System. Basically, when it comes to rescues from danger, you two have a real chicken and egg thing happening.
Picard: Those were the days.
