Seven of Nine has been one of the main highlights of Star Trek: Picard, especially with the current season where she has a major storyline as she is now part of the main group of characters in the series. As we're heading toward the second season finale, a lot of fans are wondering if the character will also continue her way to the third and final season and it looks like we have the answer now.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Jeri Ryan, who plays Seven of Nine, was asked if her character will also appear in the third season of Star Trek: Picard which will feature the reunion of the main crew of The Next Generation. Fortunately, she confirmed that she is indeed going to be part of the next season.
"Yes, you’ll see Seven again, I can tell you that," Ryan said. "I think the fans will not be disappointed. The season is huge, and it is a very worthy sendoff for all of these characters."
As for the other regular cast members, aside from Patrick Stewart (which is obvious since his character is the title of the show), Michelle Hurd is also confirmed to be part of the third season as she mentioned in an interview with ComicBook.com. Brent Spiner, who plays Data and Adam Soong in the current season, is confirmed as well potentially reprising his iconic Next Generation character.
It is exciting to hear a confirmation that Seven of Nine is going to be part of the third season since she has been a fan favorite ever since Voyager and we could potentially see her interact with the Next Generation main crew during the third season, which is something that we've never seen before in the franchise. Hopefully, she will get more awesome moments during the season.
The second season finale of Star Trek: Picard is set to air this Thursday, May 5 on Paramount+.
