Patrick Stewart Teases Startling Events In Star Trek: Picard Season 2

Almost two months ago, the first season of Star Trek: Picard came to a close, thankfully arriving before the coronavirus pandemic caused any disruption. Patrick Stewart’s long-awaited return to the role drew generally positive reviews, and a second season has already been commissioned. Though all members of cast and crew are currently cooped up indoors as a result of lockdowns, planning for that next season is already underway.

In a new interview with Gold Derby (coming as part of CBS’ Emmy push), Stewart spoke at length about what’s in store for Picard’s sophomore outing, saying:

Stewart also voiced his enthusiasm for more returning cast members from The Next Generation, stating:

I could listen to him talk all day, but in the interests of time, I’ll paraphrase his thoughts on the lockdown, with the actor saying how much he’s missing going out to dinner (a lot) and how keen he is to get back on set with a crew he greatly admires (a lot). Unfortunately, with no end to the stay-at-home orders in sight – stay alert notwithstanding – it could be some time before set work is permitted, or going out to dinner for that matter. For now, home-readings of Shakespeare will have to make do.

Excited for Star Trek: Picard season 2? With these teases you ought to be. Unless like me you passed on watching it when you saw Alex Kurtzman was involved – even if it was in a largely executive capacity. You can never be too careful. Anyway, enough about the bad vibes stalking the writer of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Startling events, returning characters, what’s not to be buzzed about? Production might get delayed due to the pandemic? Enough with the negative energy.
