CBS’ new CCO David Nevins has confirmed that the upcoming Sir Patrick Stewart-led untitled Jean-Luc Picard series is scheduled to premiere at the end of 2019 and will air exclusively on CBS All Access.
said at the 46th Annual UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Nevins says: “In 2019, it’s not one ‘Star Trek,’ it’s two ‘Star Treks.’ ‘Discovery’ at the beginning of the year, and Picard will start at the end of the year.”
“Star Trek: Discovery” co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman will oversee development on the new show which is not a “Star Trek: The Next Generation” reboot but rather a continuation of Picard’s story. We last saw Picard in the 2002 film “Star Trek: Nemesis”.
Kurtzman will executive produce the new series alongside, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon and Kirsten Beyer among others.
