Picard Season 3 Release Date: Sir Patrick Stewart is back in the role of Jean-Luc on Star Trek: Picard; the series feels like it’s ending too soon.
After this season’s last episode, we will farewell the show for good. When the Star Trek world expands, will this character die with it, or will he come back at some point?

Picard season 3 Storyline
In an interview after the season two finale, Patrick Stewart provided EW readers a hint about how the Next Generation actors will return for season three:
Even if we end up running into them, it won’t seem like a reunion. We’re not talking about a simple get-together. I can’t reveal too much about what will happen in season three, but I will say that everyone has a purpose. How the long-established characters we’ve come to know and love have evolved will take up a sizable chunk of the narrative.
While revealing further plot specifics at this point would be challenging, Stewart did imply that season three could be the most intriguing yet.
The Cast of Picard Season 3
Season two of Picard concluded with the return of regular cast members Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Michelle Hurd (Rafi “Raffi” Musiker), Evan Evagora (Elnor), and Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine).
With the recent news that Agnes Jurati will not return for the final season, Alison Pill stands out as the sole exception.
Because Cristobal “Chris” Rios has decided to spend the remainder of his life in the past, Santiago Cabrera’s presence is also in question.
