The Untitled Jean-Luc Picard show was officially announced on August 3rd, 2018 during the Star Trek Las Vegas convention on stage by Sir Patrick Stewart. It is part of the new expanded CBS Star Trek TV universe under Alex Kurtzman.
Little has been revealed about the show, but it will set 20 years after Star Trek: Nemesis, which places it in the year 2399. Stewart has said that the show will be quite different, and it is not a Next Generation revival. Speaking in Las Vegas he said:
He may not, and I stress may not, be a captain anymore. He may not be the Jean-Luc that you recognize and know so well. It may be a very different individual. Someone who has been changed by his experiences.
It will be, I promise you, I guarantee it, something very, very different. It will come to you with the same passion, and determination and love of the material and love of our followers and our fans, exactly as we had it before.
The creative team for the Picard series will include James Duff, who recently joined Discovery as an executive producer, former Discovery executive producer Akiva Goldsman, Discovery writer and Star Trek novelist Kirsten Beyer, and Pulitzer prize-winning author Michael Chabon.
Stewart, Chabon, Goldsman, and Kurtzman are all executive producers on the show, along with Discovery executive producer, and president of Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout Productions, Heather Kadin.
