PICARD Showrunner Says Season 3 Will Be “Very Different” And A More “Cinematic Experience” — GeekTyrant

That most recent trailer released for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 has made me incredibly excited for what this next chapter of the story will bring us! This final season of the series is apparently going to give us something completely different.

co-showrunner Terry Matalas recently did an interview with TrekMovie revealing that there will be a shift in style and that it will be a more cinematic experience.

“It’s very different. We really wanted to make it a cinematic experience. If there wasn’t a finale Star Trek: The Next Generation movie then this 10-episode series would serve and feel that way. So when it comes out, my recommendation would be to turn off the lights, make some popcorn, and you’ve got 10 chapters in front of you that should feel as cinematic as possible.”

That just sounds fantastic! This is what I was so excited to see! The Next generation crew reunites for one last epic adventure. In addition to Patrick Stewart’s return to play Captain Picard, the series also features Jonathan Frakes as William T. Riker, Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi, Brent Spiner as data, LeVar Burton as Geordi LaForg, Michael Dorn as Worf, Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musicer, Gates McFadden, and Jeri Ryan as Commander Seven of Nine on a new ship called USS Titan-A.

Asked about the possibility of a new Star Trek: The Next Generation movie producer Alex Kurtzman is noted Star Trek: Picard Season 3 is pretty much what such a movie would be. But he doesn’t rule it out, saying, “I think season three is, in a way. But of course, I mean, look, if you guys like it, let’s see what happens.”

Matalas spoke earlier about bringing back the Next generation cast say:

“I remember watching the premiere of” Star Trek: The Next Generation almost 34 years ago with my father like it was yesterday. It was the spark that ignited my love for science fiction. So it’s very fitting that Jean-Luc Picard’s story ends in honor of the beginning, with his dearest and most loyal friends from the USS Company. It would be an understatement to say it’s an honor to give these characters a proper goodbye. The entire Star Trek: Picard team and I can’t wait for fans to experience this final, high-stakes, spaceship-bound adventure in Season Three!”

What do you think of how the creative team wants to bring? Star Trek: Picard to an end? Star Trek: Picard premieres Thursday, February 16, exclusively in the US on Paramount+.
