“Star Trek: Picard” Season 3 has been airing new episodes on Paramount+ every Thursday. With three more episodes coming down the pipeline, that means viewers can expect to clear their schedules for April 6, 13, and 20. And based on what’s transpired so far, it seems to be a thrilling conclusion for these characters fans have held dear since they were first introduced in “The Next Generation.”
Season 3 alone has been a wild and twisted ride, with shocking reveals and cameos, as well as the ever-present danger from Changelings. And it’s arguably the best-reviewed season of the show so far. Many critics have praised the series for being a noteworthy addition to “Star Trek” canon, with Melanie McFarland of Salon writing, “It is not like ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ in the sense that it mimics a conspiracy thriller as opposed to a philosophically driven space odyssey. But it is ‘Star Trek,’ and a fitting closer for a team that spent seven seasons between 1987 and 1994 reminding viewers that what makes us extraordinary is our adventurous nature.”
“Star Trek: Picard” is a show for the Trekkies, and based on everything Season 3 has set up so far, the finale should be one that’ll keep fans talking for quite some time.
