A new Star Trek rumor has the Picard series getting three more seasons.
Fans of Star Trek: Picard will appreciate this new Star Trek rumor from Giant Freakin Robots. According to them, the folks at ViacomCBS and Paramount+ have ordered three new seasons of the show to order. More than likely shooting them back-to-back-to-back for logistic reasons.
Here’s where things get interesting though, either call it a misunderstanding, a typo, or a misleading headline but the author, Doug Norrie, specifically says that the additional seasons would bring Picard through season four.
"With an additional three seasons planned, that would at minimum, bring the show through Season 4"
The problem is, seasons two and three are not only in production but are actively filming right now. So if ViacomCBS and Paramount+ ordered “three more seasons” as the rumor claims, that would make it six seasons, not four seasons as the article claims. The show already has three seasons guaranteed, with two and three filming back to back; Picard actor John de Lancie has confirmed all that already.
So if this was a gaffe, no one has explained it just yet on their side of things. It seems unrealistic for this show would last that long, especially consider Picard star Patrick Stewart’s age.
Another Star Trek rumor has Picard having a child in a later season
This takes us to the other part of the rumor that Giant Freakin Robot posted, that Jean-Luc Picard will end up having a bastard son.
"There are other rumors for how these next seasons will take shape. It looks like Star Trek: Picard will introduce a son for Patrick Stewart’s character. It will be someone he was unaware of though could fit into some of the original Star Trek timelines involving the character. How they meet up and have their paths cross remains to be seen, but this could also be within the bounds of the exploration of time."
The notion of him having a son and never knowing about, then screwing with time due to that could imply that the second season would introduce Picard’s son but that seems a bit silly. Considering the whole point of Q’s arrival is far more far-reaching than just the idea that Picard owes some back-child support payments.
We report on all rumors, no matter how far-fetched they sound and this one seems iffy at best.
