It’s a cameo that makes perfect sense and at London Film and Comic Con last weekend, Robert Picardo (The EMH and Dr Zimmerman from Star Trek Voyager) confirmed that his agent was in talks with CBS to possibly return in Season 2 of Star Trek Picard.
“I am pleased that they (CBS) have expressed interest in me. They have reached out to my agent about next season. So I’m looking forward to seeing what it is. As you know I play two characters, primarily the Doctor but also Lewis Zimmerman.”

We sincerely hope we see Picardo in the new series as the Doctor, Zimmerman or anyone else. We’d personally love to see the EMH. What is he doing now, an author, a tinker, a tenor or maybe a spy? did he name himself Joe after all? Are his photons free??
As a disclaimer and precaution against sensationalism, we are not an official news source. This is news of an early discussion for casting. We hope something transpires from this and they’ll be an official announcement if that does occur.
