Star Trek: Picard Star Teases Character Evolution in Season 3
Star Trek fans are going to see an alternate side of Raffi Musiker when Star Trek: Picard returns for its third and final season. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas has hinted that he’s taking Raffi toward another path in the final season. Michelle Hurd, who plays Raffi, may have hinted at that course during the Star Trek: Picard board on Star Trek Day when she referenced that the show would investigate the hidden world of the Star Trek universe. Speaking to TrekMovie, Hurd explained whether this is a finished reinvention of Raffi’s character or a greater amount of an evolution.
“Evolution,” she says. “Totally, not reinvention since she’s still Raffi. In any case, what Raffi will investigate, and where she is in season 3 is truly exciting. What’s more, everything without question revolved around Terry. We discussed it in season 2. He tried out me this fabulous thought, and in a real sense, when it emerged from his mouth I was like, ‘I’m one 100 percent.’ I think fans will be truly amped up for it. She’s still Raffi, yet she makes them stun undertakings to investigate.”
On a comparative note, Matalas has said that Picard’s third season will have a more cinematic look and feel to it, acting like a 10-episode final Star Trek: The Cutting edge film. Hurd remarked on whether that implies the season feels like another show.
“Goodness, no, it’s still totally Picard,” she said. “At the end of the day, I need to say that what I found during the three seasons is that our three seasons are nearly independent seasons. What’s more, they’re a lot of directed by our showrunners. The main season was Michael Chabon, who’s a writer. So it was practically similar to reading a truly rich book. The subsequent season is Akiva Goldsman, who you know won an Oscar for A Delightful Mind so it’s all kind of cerebral stuff and time travel. The third season is Terry Matalas who is an OG Trekkie. I mean he was a Dad on the set for Jeri Ryan’s most memorable day as Seven of Nine on Explorer! What’s more, presently he’s a showrunner for the last season of Star Trek: Picard. So it’s in a real sense an adoration letter to our fans and our loved ones. I think everyone’s going to be truly blissful about it.”
Star Trek: Picard’s initial two seasons are streaming now on Paramount+. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 will debut on Paramount+ on February sixteenth.
