Picard Returns in New Star Trek Series

ICYMI, Patrick Stewart is bringing back Jean-Luc Picard in a new Star Trek series on CBS All Access.

The new show will follow Picard’s life after the events in The Next Generation. It joins Star Trek: Discovery and the upcoming limited series Star Trek: Short Treks in the rapidly expanding Star Trek universe.

Patrick Stewart said of his return to the role, “During these past years, it has been humbling to hear many stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership…I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.”
