Although it hasn’t aired yet, CBS All Access has apparently seen enough to renew another season of Star Trek: Picard. The new series, which is a spinoff of Star Trek: The Next Generation is due to premiere on 23 January on the streaming service in the United States.
The new series sees Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard, who is currently embarking on the next chapter if his life. Star Trek: Picard is set 20 years after Jean-Luc Picard’s last appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), and finds him deeply affected by the death of Data, as depicted in that story, as well as by the destruction of Romulus as referenced in the film Star Trek (2009).
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. The first season of Star Trek: Picard will consist of ten episodes. Cast members include Sir Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Dahj), Evan Evagora (Elnor), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal Rios) and Harry Treadaway (Narek).
Star Trek: Picard will also feature special guest stars from the Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as Star Trek: Voyager such as Brent Spiner (Data), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi).
