Patrick Stewart returning as Jean-Luc Picard for new Star Trek series

Sir Patrick Stewart will portray Jean-Luc Picard for the first time since 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis film, in a new series for the CBS All-Access streaming service. The announcement came with Stewart himself on stage at Creation Entertainment’s Star Trek Las Vegas event this weekend.

The untitled series, still in development, will join Star Trek: Discovery on the over-the-top subscription service.

The Picard series, set decades after Nemesis, is just one of many Star Trek projects in development for the small screen, even as the “Kelvin timeline” reboot of the original series’ characters is set to continue for reported fourth and fifth movies. Stewart’s return has been rumored for months, as has an animated project, a Wrath of Khan tie-in and a Starfleet Academy tale.

Stewart first played the USS Enterprise-D and -E captain in 1987 on Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran for seven seasons through 1994 before taking its crew to the big screen for four feature films.
