The Herald reports:
Patrick Stewart has announced he is finally returning to the Star Trek franchise for the first time in more than 20 years.
The star took to Twitter to make the announcement, confirming he will return as his original Star Trek: The Next Generation character Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
“It is an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him,” the actor tweeted.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Stewart’s Picard will return for a new CBS show which is reportedly set to tell the story of “the next chapter of Picard’s life”.
This is fairly exciting. Jean-Luc Picard was my favourite Star Trek captain.
My order of ranking the Captains is:
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard, TNG
- Captain Gabriel Lorca, Discovery
- Captain James T Kirk, TOS
- Captain Benjamin Sisko, DS9
- Captain John Archer, Enterprise
- Captain Kathryn Janeway, Voyager
