The dizzying alternate Picard timeline on Paramount+ will not be an infinite one.
After cast members suggested that the latest Patrick Stewart-led Star Trek series would soon conclude, Paramount made the news official on Tuesday: Picard will end after its third season. As part of its conclusion, the series will ramp up appearances of familiar faces from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Tuesday's announcement confirmed that actors LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, and Gates McFadden would appear in the series during its third season. Previous Picard guest stars and TNG castmates included Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, and Brent Spiner. This massive TNG reunion has so far only been teased with names and audio. Each revealed third-season actor mutters bits of dialogue in a brief teaser trailer that ends with Picard and Riker facing off in an apparent duel.
