The third season of Star Trek: Picard is being promoted as “the final season,” as it is on the brand-new poster released today. However, co-creator (and executive producer in charge of Star Trek for Paramount+) Alex Kurtzman hinted that the show could continue. "When we started the series, Patrick [Stewart], and we all, talked about really wanting it to just be three years, feeling like we could really tell a complete story with the season you’re now seeing as our endpoint. That being said, anything is possible. If a show blows the doors off the place, as we’re certainly hoping it will, and we’re very, very proud of Season 3, who knows?" Star Sir Patrick Stewart said “absolutely, yes” to the idea of continuing with the role, as long as the show can “maintain the work that we did on Seasons 1, 2 and 3.” He noted the third season kept the possibility open for more story:… "there is still enormous potential for narrative in what we’ve been doing, and there are doors left open, still. We didn’t close all of them."Showrunner Terry Matalas has been vocal about wanting to continue on after Picard with a spinoff series, which would be another way to tell new stories with these characters as well as with the new ones introduced in season 3. The third and final season of Picard premieres on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., with new episodes of the 10-episode-long season available to stream weekly on Thursdays.
