Well played, CBS All Access. Well played, indeed.

“Star Trek may be the biggest property CBS owns, and now a new Trek series is coming starring Sir Patrick Stewart once again as his Next Generation Enterprise captain, Jean-Luc Picard. Much like Star Trek: Discovery, it’s going to be a CBS All Access-exclusive series.

That ought to bring a few new subscribers in.

There are many debates over which Trek series is best. (The only correct answer is Deep Space Nine, please do @ me.) But there’s little disagreement over Stewart being one of the best and most popular actors overall.

There’s not much detail on the series yet, though a tweet from the official Star Trek Twitter account notes that it “tells the story of the next chapter in Picard’s life.”

Speaking in a surprise appearance on Saturday at the Star Trek Las Vegas convention, Stewart cautioned that it’s still early days for the series. But he said fans can look forward to seeing what a post-Next Generation existence means for Picard.

“He may not be a Captain anymore. He may be someone who has been changed by his experiences,” Stewart said (h/t Star Trek Twitter). “We have no scripts as yet. We’re just talking talking talking storylines. It will be something very different but it will come to you with the same passion.”

Stewart also shared his thoughts on the news in a more formal statement posted to social media.

“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.”

Intriguing words to end on. Make it so, CBS………….”
