New Teaser For ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2 Released
The newest teaser for the second season of the science-fiction television series Star Trek: Picard has been released. Picard is a sequel series to the show Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran from 1987 to 1994 and the ninth television series to come from the Star Trek franchise. The show stars Patrick Stewart as the iconic title character as he overcomes the trauma he experienced in the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis, particularly the death of his chief operations officer and close friend Data (Brent Spiner). Despite the first season receiving mixed to negative reviews from fans and critics, the series was ordered for a third and second season in January 2020.
The teaser opens with Picard walking through his empty vineyard alone as he searches for Laris (Orla Brady). When several of his calls for her go unanswered, a defeated Picard asks what exactly is going on. His question is suddenly answered by the mischievous god-like recurring antagonist Q (John de Lancie), who quips that he is older than he imagined, before mockingly stating that he missed Picard, much to the latter’s horror. Footage is then shown of Picard returning to Starfleet and joining up with Chris Rios (Santiago Cabrera) and the rest of the crew to get to work. Q then welcomes the captain to the “end of the road not taken.” An unseen woman explains that time has been broken. Picard states in response that they can save the future and promises that he will get them home together. As the screen starts to go to black, the next scene suddenly cuts to the infamous liberated Borg drone Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) waking up. She walks around to see the new symbol of Starfleet before looking in the mirror, where she is shocked to see that her mechanical features are now completely missing. The title card then appears as the teaser comes to a close.
The second season of Star Trek: Picard will air exclusively on the streaming service Paramount+ sometime in 2022.
