Actor Patrick Stewart recently made an appearance on The View and asked Whoopi Goldberg a surprising question.

Well, Stewart asked Goldberg to return for his current show Star Trek: Picard in season two!


“I’m here with a formal invitation, and it’s for you, Whoopi,” Stewart begins. “Alex Kurtzman, who is the senior executive producer of Star Trek: Picard, and all his colleagues, of which I am one, want to invite you into the second season.” Goldberg absolutely loses her mind! She got up and pulled Stewart in for a tight embrace. The whole studio audience gives a round of applause for the happy moment!

“I’ve said this on the show before, but Star Trek was one of the great experiences, from the beginning to the end,” Goldberg continues on the show’s segment. She’s obviously getting choked up from all the emotion and excitement. “I had the best, best, best time ever.”

Stewart adds to that, saying that “it was wonderful” to work with Goldberg on the original series. He also adds that he “can’t wait to have you with us again one more time.” Goldberg did say “Yes!” as the audience was clapping, so guess that’s her final answer! Looks like we can expect to see Goldberg back on the Star Trek series in the near future.

Stewart also talks about his character for the Star Trek series and revisiting it for more contemporary audiences. “It’s easy…. Picard has aged 18 years, fictionally, and Patrick Stewart has aged 18 years actually. And I don’t have to work at it because it’s just me, it’s who I am now!” he jokes.

“We have such a team of writers on this show, it’s astonishing, and I wanted to show that Picard’s world had changed because Patrick’s world has certainly changed, and we are no longer now living in the same kind of society we lived in 18 years ago.”

Will Goldberg need to modify her appearance in any way for her return?

Goldberg’s co-hosts followed up with the amazing invitation by asking if Goldberg would have to dye her hair or anything to reprise her role. Stewart confirms that she doesn’t need to do anything of the sort. “She’s Guinan, and who knows what Guinan’s history really is,” Stewart says. “That could be one of the excitements down the road!”
