What's Happening With Patrick Stewart's Mysterious New Star Trek Series?by 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

For many Star Trek fans, Jean-Luc Picard is the ultimate captain. Patrick Stewart made the leap to sci-fi in the late 80s at the star of Star Trek: The Next Generation as the lead in a new cast for a re-imagining of Gene Roddenberry’s legendary series. Since then, with many new series based around Starfleet having arrived on TV and with many movie adaptations and reboots having been met with critical and audience acclaim, Picard has remained one of the most iconic Enterprise leaders – and for good reason. News that Stewart was to return to his iconic role for the first time in just under 20 years was met with warm surprise – though his latest project is still shrouded in mystery.

It’s already been mooted – through few details which are available – that the new series will focus on the later life of Picard, though supposedly without the presence of his fellow TNG cast members. It’s also been stated that Stewart’s reprisal of Picard will run completely separately to that of Netflix’s current Discovery series – meaning that there won’t be one, but two Star Trek series running alongside each other for the first time in several years. Executives on board the new Picard series have advised that the show will not only feel completely different to Star Trek Discovery, but that it will also possess different values. “We want every show to feel unique so that you’re not just signing up for an experience and you get the same one every time,” executive producer Heather Kadin confirmed.

A crossover of sorts is off the cards, too. The little information we have available at this time suggests that ‘Picard’ will run completely on its own steam, and that there will be no cameos from other characters or starship crews – which means that we could be looking at a very different type of show for the franchise. Stewart himself has been posting sporadically on social media with regard to progress being made on the series, but thus far, it’s all being kept rather quiet – what could await Trekkies in the months to come? What will Picard be up to in his later years? Production is well underway, apparently, but viewers are being tantalized as to what could be heading to our screens. Rest assured, the moment we have more news for you, we will share it!
