Star Trek: Picard season two wraps up on Thursday, and it has been announced that the third and final season (which has already been filmed) will bring back the main cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Which members of the original Picard cast will carry on into season three is an open question. The only confirmed returning actors so far are Michelle Hurd (Raffi) and Jeri Ryan (Seven). Now one of the remaining cast members has revealed they won’t be back.
Alison Pill says goodbye
Alison Pill has appeared in every single episode of Star Trek: Picard so far, playing cybernetics expert Dr. Agnes Jurati. But in an interview promoting her new film All My Puny Sorrows, Pill told MovieWeb she won’t be back for season three:
I know that season three will be the end. I wasn’t a part of season three, so I don’t have much to say about it in terms of spoilers. I will get to watch along with everybody else.
Jurati went through a lot in season one, including being mind-controlled by a rogue Romulan to kill her boyfriend. She eventually helped resurrect Jean-Luc Picard in a new android body.
But in season two, things stepped up a level. For most of the season, Agnes has been dealing with slow-moving assimilation into becoming a Borg Queen. In the ninth episode, we saw her achieve a new balance as a different kind of Queen and leave Earth on La Sirena, so it isn’t entirely surprising Pill is exiting the series, especially with so many joining the cast for season three.
It hasn’t been revealed if Pill will or will not return for the season two finale, which arrives on Thursday.
There is no word yet on if Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, or Santiago Cabrera will be joining Ryan and Hurd in season three of Picard.
