[ # ] Sir Patrick Stewart returns to the final frontier
August 4th, 2018 under CBS All Access, Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen, Star Trek


CBS All Access brought Star Trek back to the small screen and now they are bringing back a franchise favorite to be part of his own show. After weeks of rumors that Sir Patrick Stewart would be back guiding the Enterprise, he finally confirmed that it is true.

I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, 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. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.

People from both Stars are excited about the news. Chewbacca aka Peter Mayhew wrote, “Great to hear @SirPatStew is returning as Jean Luc Picard to the #StarTrek universe. I look forward to seeing him on the bridge again.” While Stewart’s co-star from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Wil Wheaton aka Wesley Crusher, just typed OMG until he reached the 280 character limit.

Will Wil Wheaton be part of it? We do not know but according to the Star Trek Twitter page, the new show will tell us what the next chapter from Captain Picard’s life holds for him. Therefore, I would expect we will a lot of blasts from the pasts on the show.

How are you excited for this follow-up for the fan favorite?
