Star Trek: Picard is over after three seasons, but that doesn’t mean the franchise is done. Could we see a Legacy spin-off series?
After three seasons, we’ve said goodbye to Star Trek: Picard. The series was written as an ending for Jean-Luc Picard’s story, but it was also left open-ended to return to this world if needed. And it certainly seems like there are talks about continuing on with some of the characters introduced in the series.
Gates McFadden returned to the series as Beverly Crusher, and it was in this season we found out that Beverly and Jean-Luc had a secret love child. Outlander fans were excited to see Ed Speleers take on the role of the love child, Jack Crusher. Now fans of the Star Trek world want to see a spin-off series that follows Beverly, Jack, and more.
Will a Star Trek: Picard spin-off happen?
Is there a chance that we’ll see a spin-off series? Paramount+ hasn’t picked it up yet, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. There is a lot that goes into spin-off ideas, but we know Paramount+ loves the Star Trek universe. After all, look at the success of Discovery, Lower Decks, and more. So it is possible that a Legacy series could happen.
McFadden and Speleers seem to be on board with the idea, according to Collider. In fact, Speleers said that he would love to play Jack Crusher for the next 15 years. We’re here for him to get more consistent work after his roles on Outlander, You, Star Trek, and more.
There is going to be something that prevents any talks of a spin-off series right now. It’s all about the WGA writers strike, which means stories can’t be pitched either. This gives people time to think over ideas but not work on them. There is a chance the strike will be over in time for Star Trek day on Sept. 8, which would make a great day for a Legacy pick-up.
Star Trek: Picard is available to stream on Paramount+.
