By now, you’ve undoubtedly heard the news — Patrick Stewart is coming back to Star Trek. As the 78-year-old actor said himself, last Saturday at Star Trek Las Vegas, “Jean-Luc Picard is back!”
CBS has now released the full video of Stewart’s announcement, along with Star Trek: Discovery executive producer Alex Kurtzman welcoming him to the stage.
As we learned last weekend, Stewart will return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, 20 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. From what he said while on stage, the story is still being worked out but he may no longer be a Captain, as we last saw him on the big screen in 2002.
