WATCH: Patrick Stewart asks Whoopi Goldberg back for Picard Season 2

January 22nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

You may recall last February David Tennant interviewed tv star Whoopi Goldberg on his podcast and during it, she was asked if she would like to return to Star Trek if the opportunity came up in the (then) future Picard series.

The actress replied: “For me, it was one of the best gigs ever because Star Trek was to me a really meaningful show.”

She added that, at the time, she had not be asked to return to the USS Enterprise as bartender Guinan, saying she would very much be keen.

Well, today – ahead of Picard’s first episode airing today – on The View Picard took the hint and said that he – and show runner Alex Kurtzman – would love to have her back.

While the star didn’t explicitly say ‘yes’, her delight at being invited was very, very obvious and was actually quite a heart-warming moment.

Check it out below, and I’d say it’s a safe back she’ll be returning for Season 2 if and when it happens.

Here’s the interview:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
