Is there a 'Star Trek: Picard' spinoff in the works? Everything we know.

Although there hasn't been any official word yet from Paramount regarding a Star Trek: Picard spinoff, the Star Trek: Picard series finale definitely set up enough loose ends for multiple possible spinoff series in the future.

For example, Ed Speelers's Star Trek: Picard character Crusher (i.e., Captain Picard's son) could definitely star in his own spinoff series.

Other characters in Star Trek: Picard, like Captain Worf (Michael Dorn) and Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), were also left with fates wide open, with plenty of opportunities for them to explore space in new stories yet to be created Star Trek: Picard spinoffs. There was certainly plenty of potential with a lot of old and new characters introduced in Star Trek: Picard.

(Also — give LeVar Burton his own Star Trek: Picard spinoff already!)

The titular hero himself, Sir Patrick Stewart, told Deadline that he wasn't closing the door on his iconic Star Trek captain even though Star Trek: Picard was ending, explaining about a possible future season: "There is still enormous potential for matters in what we can do and there are doors left open and we didn’t close all of them."

Star Trek: Picard executive producer Alex Kurtzmann echoed Sir Patrick's statement, adding, "Anything is possible ... If the show blows the doors off the place, and we’re certainly hoping it will as we’re very proud of Season 3, who knows."

So what they're saying is that there is a chance Captain Picard could return! (Hey, we can only hope.)

Captain Picard reunited with a lot of old favorites in 'Star Trek: Picard' Season 3.

One lovely full-circle aspect of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 was the fact that Captain Picard reunited with many of his old crew mates from the U.S.S. Enterprise. We won't spoil it for your here, but let's just say it's a journey down memory lane for Trekkies, old and new!

You can stream all three seasons of Star Trek: Picard, now on Paramount Plus. And for now, we're signing off from our captain's log, but hopefully there will be more Star Trek news sooner rather than later!
