After months of speculation, the title for the highly anticipated return of Patrick Stewart to the Star Trek Universe was recently revealed. Instead of the fan favourite, Logan inspired approach of Jean-Luc, CBS has gone with the equally as straightforward Star Trek: Picard.
The first teaser for the forthcoming series has landed, and it raises a very important question that will need answering swiftly, is Chateau Picard wine going to make it to supermarkets? The easer opens (Thanos style) with Picard enjoying the fruits of the land he has retired to while an ominous voiceover asks why he left Starfleet? Aside from setting up a vineyard, Jean-Luc appears to have led a solitary life for the last 15 years, but something is going to coax the former Admiral back into the stars.
Star Trek: Picard is due to launch on CBS All Access later this year, it was believed that much like Star Trek Discovery, Picard would land on Netflix for worldwide distribution. However, in an unexpected plot twist, Picard is set to stream on Amazon Prime. There is currently no fixed release date, but the series is expected to kick-off late this year, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
STAR TREK: PICARD features Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” The new series will follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life.
Alongside Stewart, STAR TREK: PICARD will also star Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera and Harry Treadaway.
