Patrick Stewart Returning as Jean-Luc Picard in New Star Trek Series

The great Patrick Stewart is returning to his iconic Star Trek role in an upcoming show.

Jean-Luc Picard will be starring in a brand-new Star Trek show for CBS All Access, currently home to Star Trek: Discovery.

Per Deadline, this new show will “tell the story of the next chapter of Picard’s life.”

In a statement posted to Twitter this afternoon, Stewart himself said, “I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him.”
