Evan Evagora, who played Elnor on seasons one and two of Star Trek: Picard, will not be back for the show’s third and final season, the actor confirmed in an Instagram post on May 5, 2022.

LLAP.”
The actor’s big news surprised some fans. That’s because although his character died in “Assimilation,” the third episode of the second season, he appeared as a hallucination in two consecutive episodes Memory Alphaand then – as a final gift from Q – was restored in the season finale “Farewell”.
