No, this is not a parody post:
CBS announced Saturday that Patrick Stewart will reprise his iconic role of Jean-Luc Picard in a new “Star Trek” series. It will be streamed on CBS All Access.
The still-unnamed series will explore the “next chapter” of Picard’s life.
Stewart played the Enterprise captain in the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (1987-94), and in several feature films. He last appeared in the role in the movie “Star Trek: Nemesis” in 2002. Stewart, who will also be an executive producer of the show, described it is an “unexpected but delightful surprise” to reprise the role after, he thought, it had “run its natural course.”
He said it has been “humbling” to hear from fans about how Picard has helped and inspired them.
Go here to read the rest. Stewart is 78. What will the title of the series be: Star Trek: The Dying Generation? In any event it probably will not be quite as terrible as Star Trek: Discovery.
