The third – and final – season of Star Trek: Picard, the sequel series to Star Trek: The Next Generation, is staying on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service in the UK, where Season 3 will be available to stream.
This means Picard won’t be joining the rest of the Star Trek universe on Paramount+ UK, even though the US version of Paramount+ is the official home of every Star Trek series.
- Update: In surprising news, Picard will ALSO be coming to Paramount+ UK.
In the US, Star Trek: Picard Season 3 will premiere on February 16, 2023. UK viewers won’t have to wait long, and the first episode will be available on Prime Video on February 17, 2023.
Subsequent episodes (there will be 10 in total) will then be available to stream weekly.
Star Trek: Picard features the beloved character of Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), and is set in the 24th century, 20+ years after the end of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), which was the last film to feature The Next Generation’s characters.
Season 1 saw the return of several beloved Next Generation characters, and Season 2, which involved time travel, brought back the character of Q, played by John de Lancie.
Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard, which is set to be the series’ last season, is planning to bow out with a bang, bringing back Star Trek: The Next Generation stars LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiner.
They will join returning cast members Jeri Ryan (of Star Trek: Voyager fame) and Michelle Hurd.
How To Watch Star Trek: Picard In The UK
Most of the Star Trek franchise – series and films such as Star Trek: Discovery, Strange New Worlds and the older shows – are available on Paramount+ in the UK,
But two shows have remained with Prime Video: Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Lower Decks.
Prime Video, the streaming service from Amazon, has an extensive library of on-demand movies, TV programmes and original productions.
You can watch it on almost every streaming device and Smart TV in the UK, as most of them already have the Prime Video app – from Amazon’s own Fire TV sticks, to Roku streamers, and even Sky and Virgin Media’s set-top boxes.
You can subscribe to Prime Video either by getting an annual Amazon Prime subscription (which currently costs £95/year), or with a stand-alone, monthly subscription, to either the full Prime (at £8.99/month) or just for the Prime Video part for £5.99/month.
If you’re not a member yet, you can get a free trial for 30 days, to either one of the subscription tiers.
When Episode 1 of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 becomes available on Prime Video, subscribers will be able to watch it at no extra cost (without having to pay extra to rent or buy it).
Fans who prefer to watch without subscribing to Prime, can buy single seasons of Picard – with Season 3 becoming available to purchase at a later date.
