Season One of Star Trek: Picard may have been met with a less than enthusiastic reception among Trek fans, but that hasn’t put Paramount off. They are going again with Star Trek: Picard Season 2, and now it has a trailer to go with that teaser from a few months back.
To celebrate Captain Picard Day, which is apparently a thing now, the Paramount+ streaming service has pushed this trailer out in the US.
Filming is still underway on Star Trek: Picard season 2 as we speak, running from February, with season 2 and season 3 rumored to be shooting back-to-back. Santiago Cabrera’s Captain Rios and Orla Brady’s Romulan housekeeper Laris return alongside Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora and Michelle Hurd. Jeri Ryan also returns as Seven of Nine.
The big news is, of course, the return of John de Lancie as Q and through the lines he speaks in the trailer it is potentially going to link back to Star Trek: The Next Generation quite heavily including Tapestry.
Paramount has geo-locked the trailer to the US only. So for our Outposters around the world, especially those without a VPN, here is a version available outside the US in a less than ideal format and quality.
Star Trek: Picard is set to return in 2022. It will be on Paramount+ in the United States and released on Amazon Prime internationally.
Star Trek: Picard was created by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer, and Alex Kurtzman for the streaming service CBS All Access (later rebranded as Paramount+). It is the eighth Star Trek series and was launched in 2020 as part of Kurtzman’s expanded Star Trek Universe.
The series is set 20 years after Jean-Luc Picard’s last appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) and finds the character deeply affected by the death of Data in that film as well as the destruction of the planet Romulus in the film Star Trek (2009).
