This week, Star Trek: Picard comes back for its third and last season. The show’s main character, Picard, will have one last adventure with old and new friends. But even though the season has made it clear that it’s mostly a clean break from the ones before it, here’s what you need to know if you’re looking forward to The Next Generation nostalgia in season three.
When will Star Trek: Picard season 3 come out?
In the US, Star Trek: Picard will return for its third and final season on Paramount+ on February 16, 2023, with the premiere of the first new episode. New episodes will come out every week.
Fans in the UK don’t have to wait too long because the episodes will come out the next day. This means that Star Trek: Picard season 3 will premiere on Prime Video in the UK on Friday, February 17, 2023.
It’s important to note that there was some doubt about whether the new season would still air on Prime Video in the UK, now that Paramount+ has also started up here.
But new episodes will still be on Prime Video, it has been confirmed.

The Story of Star Trek: Picard Season 3
The official summary for season 3 says, “In the epic, thrilling conclusion of Star Trek: Picard, a desperate message from a long-lost friend pulls Starfleet legend Admiral Jean-Luc Picard into the most daring mission of his life, forcing him to recruit allies from across generations.”
“This last adventure puts him on a collision course with the legacy of his past and explosive new information that will change the Federation’s future forever.
Stewart told Den of Geek that in season 3, his character’s attitude changed in a way that was clear to everyone: “I’ve always thought that one of the things that Picard liked best about his job [on the Enterprise] was how often the unexpected happened. And I think that made him very, very happy.
“In the first season of Picard, he realized early on that he could still help or protect those who needed it. This was the main thing that drove him through the seven years of Next Generation.”
One of the most talked-about parts of this season is that the Enterprise-F starship, which has been a fan favorite since it first appeared in the Star Trek Online video game, is now part of the canon.
