Star Trek Picard 4 will not be there, because
It won’t Star Trek Picard 4. The spin-off TV series that finds Patrick Stewart as the iconic Admiral Jean-Luc Picard ends with the third season, available in full starting April 21 on Amazon Prime Video and Paramount +.
Why only three seasons? The third season of the series was undoubtedly the most acclaimed by television critics and fans, who praised showrunner Terry Matalas’ ability to amalgamate new characters – such as Jack Crusher – with the exciting reunion of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Better to close with a bang, this seems to be the philosophy behind the project. Star Trek Picard was intended to be a three-act story, revealed Alex Kurtzman, the executive producer in charge of the franchise television of Star Trek on behalf of Paramount. A few months ago Kurtzman, from the stage of the winter press tour organized by the American Television Critics Association, confirmed that, when he proposed to Patrick Stewart to go back to wearing the uniform he wore for the first time 35 years ago, there was discussion of a three-year arc for the series. In short, the curtain should always have fallen after the third season.

In the season three finale, Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher manage to save their son from the clutches of the terrible Borg Queen. The episode ends with a time jump forward: a year later, the Uss Titan was renamed Enterprise-G in honor of Picard and his fleet: Seven of Nine is the captain, and with her there are also Raffi, Sidney LaForge and Jack Crusher. The latter is visited by… Q himself, who this time has a message for him and not for his father: Jack’s journey has just begun.
A Jack Crusher spin-off coming after Star Trek Picard?
The post-credits scene from the series finale of Star Trek Picard suggests that Jack Crusher’s journey has just begun. This is indeed what Q reports to Jean-Luc Picard’s son. Regarding the future of Jack Crusher and the possibility of reviewing characters like Seven of Nine or the mythical
Uss Titan Enterprise-G showrunner Terry Matalas cryptically responded by saying: “Jack Crusher is going to be a very busy man, I guarantee you that.” It seems that the third season of Picard will have a continuation in the form of one (or more?) spin-off dedicated to the characters that we have been able to know and appreciate over the course of these last ten episodes.
