Sir Patrick Stewart Set To Return As Captain Jean-Luc Picard In A New STAR TREK Series For CBS All Access

A new report has confirmed that 3x Golden Globe-nominee Patrick Stewart (Logan) will reprise his iconic role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in an all-new Star Trek television series for CBS All-Access.

Sir Patrick Stewart (Logan) officially announced today that he will be returning to the Star Trek universe as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in an all-new series for CBS All Access.

While plot details are understandably being kept under wraps, the series is expected to serve as a sequel to Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994) as well as to his four films - Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). It will tell the story of an older, wiser Picard as he embarks on a whole new set of intergalactic adventures. 

Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, and Kirsten Beyer will serve as the creative team behind the project, which is the second Star Trek universe series to hit the streaming service. At least two other shows, including a series set at Starfleet Academy and a "Wrath of Khan" miniseries, are said to be in development.

A premiere date has not been set, but we can probably expect it on the streaming service sometime next year, if not sooner. Meanwhile, Star Trek: Discovery will return for its second season in early 2019.
