“The trial never ends…” Jean Luc Picard’s life is going to get a lot crazier. Paramount+ has released a teaser video for the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Picard and a beloved character from the Star Trek: The Next Generation series will be returning. Series star Patrick Stewart made the reveal.
John de Lancie will be revising his role as Q in season two of Picard, which will debut at some point in 2022. As viewers of Next Generation know, the god-like character is a member of the Q-Continuum who causes all sorts of turmoil and mischief for the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D. Q is well-loved by fans but appeared in just eight Next Generation episodes — including the pilot (which revolved around humanity being put on trial) and the series finale (which featured an older Picard running his family’s vineyard).
The second season’s cast will also include Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Jeri Ryan, Orla Brady, and Brent Spiner.
Here’s the press release from Paramount+, the teaser, and the announcement:
