Patrick Stewart Says ‘It’s Been A Fulfilling Life’ Being Part Of ‘Star Trek’ Family

Patrick Stewart is returning for a third and final season as Jean-Luc Picard in the Paramount+ series “Star Trek: Picard.” He first took on the role 36 years ago, and he and co-star Gates McFadden told Access Hollywood how rewarding it’s been for the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” cast to get back together again. “It was so much fun, because we have a group text. We are a family,” Gates shared. Patrick added, “We love our work and the people we know, and it’s been a fulfilling life.” New episodes of “Star Trek: Picard” Season 3 drop Thursdays on Paramount+.
