Star Trek: Picard tells the next story of Picard’s life, which takes place after the events of Star Trek: Next Generation. Series creator Alex Kurtzman previously described the series as a “very thoughtful, psychological portrait in a lot of ways… Things have changed for [Picard] and changed him in some ways, and yet he is so deeply and fundamentally still Picard.” Season 2 is expected to see Picard dealing with time travel as he tries to save the future.
The series is being led by Sir Patrick Stewart as he returns to the Star Trek Universe to reprise one of his most iconic roles as Jean-Luc Picard. Joining him are returning Star Trek alums, including Brent Spiner as Data and Star Trek: Voyager‘s Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine. It also stars Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, and Orla Brady.
In addition to John de Lancie, the second season will also feature the return of EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg as she is expected to reprise her role as Guinan. She was personally invited to guest-star in the new season by Stewart when he appeared in The View last year.
Star Trek: Picard is executive produced by Akiva Goldsman and Terry Matalas, who are both serving as showrunners. Executive producers are Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Doug Aarniokoski, Dylan Massin, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, Aaron Baiers, and Kirsten Beyer. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.
