Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 might be over, but fans of Gene Roddenberry’s sci-fi universe have something else to look forward to – the upcoming series which will see Sir Patrick Stewart return as Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Jean-Luc Picard. While the show doesn’t have an official title yet, we now know that the series will have a UK home on a UK streaming service. But where Discovery has beamed up to Netflix, along with all other TV incarnations of Star Trek, the Picard series will come to Amazon Prime.

Production on the series has now begun, with early reports indicating that it will run across 10 episodes – with the possibility for additional future seasons. Speaking about the show, executive producer Alex Kurtzman said: “There’s only one word that can begin to describe Sir Patrick Stewart as Starship Commander Jean-Luc Picard, and that’s ‘legendary’. We are thrilled beyond measure to have him back in command, bringing the optimistic messages of Star Trek to audiences around the world.”

It’s currently unknown when the Picard series will hit the airwaves, but you can probably set your phasers to some time at the end of 2019 or the first half of 2020.
