Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Is Phenomenal

New season is epic as there is loads of payoff for not only longtime fans but new fans to the frachise.

Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Is Phenomenal

Currently, the best series on TV is Star Trek: Picard Season 3 which airs on the Paramount+ streaming service and it’s phenomenal.

Yeah, Season 1 sucked big time and Season 2 is pretty much trash, but Star Trek: Picard Season 3 ignores those episodes and blasts off fully engaged to the final frontier.

You don’t have to watch the first two seasons, and if you haven’t, don’t bother, as you can jump right into Star Trek: Picard Season 3 and not miss a beat.

If you have also been turned off by Star Trek being woke, worry no more as Season 3 is epic and there is loads of payoff if you are a big fan of The Next Generation. And I mean loads. And if you’re new? It’s still a great season as it also introduces new characters and it doesn’t shit all over the original characters à la Disney Star Wars and Marvel.

Star Trek takes the Cobra Kai approach

What they’ve done with Star Trek: Picard Season 3 is what the creators behind the Cobra Kai series have done: they’ve brought in the old with the new and created something wonderful that makes everyone happy. I always recommend fans go over to THR and read the guest column by Cobra Kai creator/writer/producer Hayden Schlossberg on “Rules for Successfully Rebooting Classic IP,” which should be a must-read for everyone in Hollywood.

Star Trek: Picard Season 3 also marks the first time a Star Trek series has cracked the Nielsen Top 10 streaming ratings, so let’s hope following the conclusion that some sort of “Star Trek Legacy” is announced (Jack Crusher needs to be at the helm!).

Terry Matalas is the showrunner

The Star Trek: Picard Season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas has also been active on Twitter and has been fielding fan questions and retweeting reactions. I’m not familiar with Matalas, but he’s quickly become a new favorite, so anything he is involved with going forward, I’ll be checking out.

Terry Matalas’ credits also include, according to IMDB, the 12 Monkeys TV series, the MacGyver reboot, Nightflyers, and Blood Drive. There is also a stat listed about him where he built one of the most authentic Back to the Future DeLorean replicas, which was so good that based on the quality of the work, he was selected to take on the restoration of the original car from the movie, so his dude sounds like a super fan.

Variety also has a good interview on how they rebuilt that iconic set piece.

Check out some tweets below.

Star Trek: Picard Season 3 finale airs Thursday, April 20th at 3am and they are airing the last two episodes in theaters, if you were lucky enough to get tickets and be from one of the limited cities involved.
