Patrick Stewart tipped for new Star Trek show as Picard
Red alert! Captain Jean-Luc Picard may be travelling at warp speed back to space: the final frontier right at this very moment.
The Hollywood Reporter claimed on Tuesday (June 19) that Sir Patrick Stewart is attached to a brand new Star Trek series in development at CBS that will see him reprise his Next Generation role as Picard.
The project is reportedly one of several Star Trek series and miniseries that are being developed by Star Trek: Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzman as part of his newly-signed multi-year production pact with CBS.

Again, I was so uninspired to watch Discovery at that point. It didn't help that I heard from multiple sources that it's basically Social Justice Warrior Trek.

Geriatric Star Trek, No..... no no no....
Get ready for more Trek than you can shake a phaser at. According to a report at Variety, CBS has signed a five-year deal with current Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzman's production company to expand the television franchise to new live action series, mini-series and possible animation.
Kurtzmann co-wrote the scripts for 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. Variety reports that there are several new shows set in the universe already in development, including a series set at Starfleet Academy from the same folks behind the CW reboot of Dynasty, Gossip Girl, and Hulu/Marvel's Runaways. There are also two possible limited series, one based on the Wrath of Khan storyline, as well as an animated series with plot details kept under wraps. According to Variety, CBS Television studios gets exclusive rights to all the content Kurtmann and his production company Secret Hideout make over the next five years.
Even though Star Trek: Discovery was renewed for a second season, it's had its share of production woes and platform issues. Last month, the showrunners who replaced Brian Fuller were again replaced by none other than Kurtzman himself.
