Patrick Stewart appeared on Wednesday’s episode of the The View and personally invited host Whoopi Goldberg to appear in the second season of Star Trek: Picard.
While promoting the premiere of the Picard series, Stewart surprised Goldberg, saying:
“I’m here with a formal invitation… it’s for you, Whoopi. Alex Kurtzman, who is the senior executive producer of Star Trek: Picard, and all of his colleagues — of which I am one — want to invite you into the second season.”
Stewart’s invitation was met with a big smile from Goldberg and huge applause from the studio audience.
After a warm embrace, Whoopi responded enthusiastically, saying:
