With Sir Patrick Stewart’s return as Jean-Luc Picard hitting from tomorrow, the actor has been out doing the publicity circuit for the “Star Trek: Picard” series.
One of those visits this week was “The View,” where his old “Star Trek: The Next Generation” co-star Whoopi Goldberg acts as one of the primary hosts.
As part of the interview, Stewart officially and formally invited Goldberg to reprise her role of former Ten-Forward bartender and the centuries old Guinan for the new show’s second season.
Goldberg answered with a definitive yes. She would be the latest familiar face to join the action following the inclusion of Brent Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Jeri Ryan and Jonathan Del Arco in the show’s first season.
You can check out the reunion and invitation in the clip below:
“Star Trek: Picard” will debut on CBS All Access in the U.S. on Thursday night and Amazon everywhere else from Friday.
