Following today’s season finale of Star Trek: Prodigy, Paramount+ takes a short pause for new Trek TV. In seven weeks the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard debuts, and now we have the first clip.
Picard gets a very long distance call
The new clip comes at the end of a special episode of The Ready Room with Wil Wheaton primarily focusing on the Prodigy finale, with some good interviews with the cast and creatives. The final minutes of The Ready Room see Wheaton introducing a clip from Picard season 3 featuring a quiet moment at home with Jean-Luc getting a surprise communication.

It’s likely the call coming to Picard’s old combadge is coming from his former Enterprise CMO, Dr. Beverly Crusher. It has previously been reported that the season will start with an attack on her ship in deep space. But there are still many questions raised by the clip, including why Jean-Luc needs glasses (maybe he’s allergic to Retinax 5?).
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.
Picard streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S.A. It is distributed concurrently by Paramount Global Content Distribution on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories, and in Canada it airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave.
