Star Trek: Picard showrunner Terry Matalas keeps talking about Star Trek: Legacy but is it a real show?
Star Trek: Picard has caused many fans to clamor for a spinoff, featuring the newer characters introduced on the show, headed up by Terry Matalas. Matalas, the current showrunner of Picard, has hyped up the concept himself, and many, including Jonathan Frakes, have already constructed the idea and who they’d want to see involved in it.
While Picard has largely found its success thanks to the constant returning stars of yesteryear, cameos, and nostalgic-fueled comments, a Legacy series would only carry on specific characters’ offsprings. With most of the older cast stepping aside for the newer characters created and highlighted in Picard.
The children of Jean-Luc Picard, Geordi La Forge, William Riker, and Deanna Troi, and newer characters like Captain Liam Shaw would all be part of the series. The lone legacy character to be brought over would likely be Seven of Nine, who has been part of Shaw’s bridge crew during the events of Picard.
But with all the hype from the fandom and constant conversations surrounding it, is Legacy actually in production?
Star Trek: Legacy is not a show in active development, yet
The short answer is no, Star Trek: Legacy is not in production anywhere at the moment. Fans and crew members alike are trying to get Paramount+ to make the show and are doing so by creating petitions. When even those in the know are supporting petitions for the show, it’s very likely that the show is not even in discussions to be made yet.
That could certainly change in a moment, as Paramount+ did announce that two new Star Trek shows were in the works and recently we found out that one of them is Star Trek: Starfleet Academy.
So unless the second show is something already finalized, then there’s hope Legacy gets greenlit.
