Sir Patrick Stewart Returning to Star Trek


Multiple outlets are now reporting that Sir Patrick Stewart is in talks to return to television as Captain Picard in a new Star Trek series. Producer Alex Kurtzman took over the development of Star Trek Discovery after a rocky first season and now he is developing multiple new Star Trek properties.

Quote:
CBS Television Productions have announced a new overall deal with executive producer Alex Kurtzman, extending his agreement with the studio to five years. As part of the new production deal, Kurtzman will supervise the expansion of CBS Star Trek franchise for television, developing new series, mini-series and other content opportunities, including animation.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that one of the new Star Trek shows that could happen with Kurtzman is a project lead by Patrick Stewart, reprising his famous role as Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The outlet notes that Kurtzman and Avika Goldsman are currently attached to the Star Trek TV reboot led by Stewart, though a deal has not yet been reached meaning the project may not happen.

In addition to growing CBS Star Trek universe, Kurtzman and his company Secret Hideout will develop new, original series across the full spectrum of broadcast, cable and streaming platforms. As part of this process, Secret Hideout will expand its production operation, adding diverse voices and cultivating new creative talent to align with the company.
I wasn't a fan of Discovery. I thought the casting was fantastic, but the story was too much like Walking Dead... lots of people standing around talking about doing stuff instead of doing stuff and it had none of the moral dilemma which is the hallmark of Star Trek.

I absolutely love him, he's my favorite captain, but the guy is seventy-freaking-eight. He's too old for the part, if not the grind of cranking out a weekly show.

I hate watching my favorite actors age out of their prime, but he's out of it by a decade at least. Let it go.

Do not make it so.

Completely agree. I could see him being a guest star as Admiral Picard or something but not helming a starship.

I wish they'd do something new hundreds of years after TNG.

Discovery would have been a lot better if:

1) They hadn't been so worried about diversity (minor issue)
2) THEY HADN'T RELEASED IT ONLINE ONLY AND REQUIRED A GATDAMN SUBSCRIPTION!!

They didn't do themselves any favors putting Discovery behind a paywall.

I might come back to see Picard in Star Trek: Depends Edition but I'll be damned if I'll subscribe to their streaming service.

Ergh. I've read good things about "The Orville", so I watched a few episodes, but I have to say I really despised the humor.

Loved Orville as a few episodes WERE just like TNG mixed with stupidity. The 'Majority Rule' episode especially.

Loved Discovery. I also loved all Trek series as each brings something a little different. Heck I even liked Voyager. (Then again my fav has to be Babylon 5)

Yah it's kind of this weird situation. Honestly though, the further in you go, the more Trek and less Seth it is. I think they kind of front loaded the "humor" cause that's what people were expecting.

Either way, feels like TNG and then they throw in a random weed reference or something and you're like "Huh? Oh yah, it's not TNG."

With all the celebrity deaths over the years, when I saw his picture my mind assumed that he was dead... thankfully Sir Patrick Stewart is alive and well. I mean, who doesn't love this guy?

I thought the same thing, to be honest.

He may be nearly 78 years old, but he still looks great; while he's noticeably older, he doesn't really seem to have aged that much. I'm pretty sure he's a vampire.

As good as it will be to see Picard back, I'd almost rather see progression forward in the timeline. I'm tired of looking back; I want to see a new Enterprise and a new crew.

Sorry, too old for a captain: December, 2017 -



That chair he used in the last X-men (Logan)? He really needed it.

The show should include Picard leading a crew of millennials who disdainfully call him "Captain Grandpa" and he shouts "Get off my bridge!!" every time they do. Would be comedy gold.

In all fairness, does it explicitly say he's captaining a ship anywhere? "Reprising his famous role as Captain Picard" could entail a lot of different scenarios.

For all we know, he could be long deceased while his digital consciousness, tied to a hologram of his physical persona, interacts with the captain of a newer ship in an advisory role. I mean, who wouldn't want their own little personal holographic Picard on demand?

Star Trek doesn't mind having shows from different perspectives. Why not a show about an admiral (Picard) and the politics that go into decision-making at Starfleet Command?

Instead of barking orders to a captain on a video screen and logging out, we'd see their side of things, and how crises are handled "up the ranks."

I'm not saying that's my ideal show, but let's not assume that Picard is back in a captain's chair, or even trying to do what he was doing on TNG. Could be completely different, and a good role for a man of Stewart's talents.

odds of it happening are low, anyway. But it could be a different kind of show that takes his age into account.

Why did they call the new show "Discovery" when they didn't discover anything?
