Welcome back one of the greatest captains of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in this new CBS All Access web television series. The eighth series in the now 53 year old franchise, that seems to have no plans on ever going away.
The series was speculated in June of 2018 when Alex Kurtzman (executive producer of “Star Trek: Picard”) mentioned an idea, but was not confirmed until August, after months of negotiations with Sir Patrick Stewart. Filming began in the state of California in April of 2019 and has subsequently wrapped up. The title of the new series was released in May of 2019 with many fans wondering what the show will be.
The show takes place 20 years after “Star Trek: Nemesis” and finds Picard deeply and thoroughly affected by the destruction of the planet Romulus from the 2009 film “Star Trek“. The show is set to be a 10 episode series expected to premiere in late 2019, with the likes of Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones set to also star in the show.
