“Rich 25th Century” notwithstanding, Star Trek: Picard showrunner confirms there will be no Legacy spinoff

Star Trek Picard


Despite the richness and potential of the 25th century of Star Trek, showrunner Terry Matalas of Star Trek: Picard season 3 has confirmed that there isn’t a Star Trek: Legacy spinoff of Picard in development at Paramount+.

With episodes ranking in the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 and a 98% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the highly anticipated Picard season 3 was an enormous hit for the streamer.

Star Trek: Picard season 3 brilliantly respected the past while laying forth an intriguing prospective future by bringing back the ensemble of Star Trek: The Next Generation and adding new characters who quickly won over fans.

Star Trek: Picard season three concluded, laying the groundwork for the Next Generation’s adventures in the twenty-fifth century. Under Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), the USS Enterprise-G was launched, elevating the adored former Borg heroine to the status of a full-fledged Star Trek principal character.

Furthermore, Jack’s father, Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), transferred the baton to Ensign Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers) with the reappearance of the all-powerful Q (John de Lancie). Star Trek: Legacy, Picard’s intended spinoff, has countless potential, but Paramount has shown no signs of moving forward with developing the series, thus things are at a standstill.

Terry Matalas, the showrunner for Picard Season 3, says Star Trek: Legacy is not being developed.

TrekMovie spoke with Terry Matalas, the showrunner for Picard season 3, on the red carpet before Star Trek: Picard won a bunch of Saturn Awards. During the conversation, they inquired about the future of Star Trek: Legacy.

Matalas reaffirmed that there is no progress or conversation with Paramount on the creation of a spinoff for Star Trek: Legacy. See his quotation below: First off, there isn’t much to say about Legacy. I wish there was, but there are several storylines that we discussed from the start and where they might go.

And what a wonderful opportunity that is. There haven’t been any conversations regarding Star Trek: Legacy with Paramount. They have a limited amount of money and streaming space, and they are producing Star Trek. There isn’t one right now, but we’re excited to see what the Star Trek world has in store since you never know what.

Two Star Trek projects are in production and two are now filming on Paramount+. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 3 and Star Trek: Section 31, the first Paramount+ original film featuring Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh, are now filming in Toronto.

Meanwhile, Noga Landau and Alex Kurtzman, executive producers of Star Trek, are co-showrunners of a brand-new TV series with a young adult premise called Star Trek: Starfleet Academy. Regretfully, the consensus seems to be that future Star Trek projects won’t be started until existing television programs and motion pictures are finished.

The multitude of story and character options that have been unexplored since Star Trek: Legacy has not been produced is particularly annoying for fans of Terry Matalas and Star Trek: Picard season 3.

Season three of Picard offered promise for carrying on the USS Enterprise-G crew’s stories, with cameos from Star Trek: The Next Generation cast members, and bringing back beloved characters like Liam Shaw (Todd Stashwick), who passed away in the third season.
