Patrick Stewart Asks Whoopi Goldberg To Return as Guinan for 'Picard' on 'The View'

While promoting his new CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Picard, Patrick Stewart had a giant question for Whoopi Goldberg on The View.

The legendary actor, who stars as the title captain, formally asked Whoopi to return to the Star Trek universe by reprising her role as Guinan, the El-Aurian bar hostess.

“I’m here with a formal invitation, and it’s for you, Whoopi,” Patrick shared. “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.”

Obviously, she said yes!

“I’ve said this on the show before, but Star Trek was one of the great experiences, from the beginning to the end,” Whoopi added later on. “I had the best, best, best time ever.”

The group also discussed if Guinan would require Whoopi to go back to dark hair.

“She’s Guinan, and who knows what Guinan’s history really is,” Patrick said. “That could be one of the excitements down the road!”

Star Trek: Picard premieres Thursday, January 23rd.
