I don't want to see "The Facts of Life: The Next Generation".

Re: Patrick Stewart returning to TV as Picard!

https://forum.dvdtalk.com/tv-talk/64...-kurtzman.html

Previously posted some information about this in this thread. It was "rumored" at the time.


Article is from Deadline today:


It’s official — Patrick Stewart is returning to the Star Trek franchise. The acclaimed Shakespearean actor is set to headline a new Star Trek series for CBS All Access, reprising his iconic New Generation character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The project, which has been rumored since the June announcement of a Star Trek universe expansion with new series, was just unveiled by Stewart himself in a surprise appearance at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention.

The new series, which is not a Star Trek: New Generation reboot, will tell the story of the next chapter of Picard’s life. It will be shepherded by Star Trek: Discovery co-creator/executive producer Alex Kurtzman who was tapped to oversee development of new Star Trek content under a big new overall deal with CBS TV Studios.

“With overwhelming joy, it’s a privilege to welcome Sir Patrick Stewart back to the Star Trek fold,” Kurtzman said. “For over 20 years, fans have hoped for the return of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and that day is finally here. We can’t wait to forge new ground, surprise people, and honor generations both new and old.”

On the creative team for the new series starring Stewart, Kurtzman will be joined by James Duff, who recently joined Star Trek: Discovery as executive producer and signed a CBS Studios overall deal, former Discovery exec producer Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, and Discovery writer Kirsten Beyer.

Stewart, Chabon and Goldsman executive produce with Discovery executive producers Duff, Kurtzman and Heather Kadin of Secret Hideout as well as Roddenberry Entertainment President Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and Roddenberry Entertainment COO Trevor Roth.

“I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course,” Stewart said. “It is, therefore, 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. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.”

“During these past years, it has been humbling to hear many stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership,” Stewart continued. “I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.”

Stewart is one of the most popular stars of the Star Trek franchise. He headline the Star Trek: New Generation series for its seven-season run and also portrayed Picard in the movies Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) as well as in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s pilot “Emissary.”

This is the third Star Trek series to be officially announced, joining Star Trek: Discovery, which is heading into its second season, and the upcoming Star Trek: Short Treks four-part limited series.

Stewart, who recently toplined the Starz comedy series Blunt Talk, is repped by ICM Partners, Independent Talent Group and Anonymous Content.

re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

Stewart announced this news at the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas today:



They said it's going to be set 20 years after TNG.

and here's Stewart's official statement:



I'm guessing he's fine with working a 10-13 episode season now as opposed to the grind of doing 22-24 episodes back in the day.

This will be at least 1 year away from being ready. I'm guessing this hits air in late 2019/early 2020. Realistically probably early 2020 seems more likely.

I bet they’ll try to push it out ASAP. Especially considering Stewart’s age (he just turned 78 last month) if they want it to last a while they need to get it moving. Unless it’s only a limited series or something and is planned for like a ten episode season or something only.

Yeah but they haven't cast anyone yet aside from Stewart and haven't assembled a writer's room either. Maybe they have started some work on scripts, who knows? And there's pre-production as well (sets and locations). Sure, Stewart is 78, but you can't rush a science fiction show to air like a crime drama. This is going to take months of work including writing, filming and then post production. That's why I think at least 12 months before it hits air seems realistic. Maybe about 6 months for filming.

Discovery season 2 started filming in April for an early 2019 premiere.

re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

Does this fit within the timeframe of the Old Picard episode from TNG that showed him in retirement? Would this take place before that if it’s 20 years after TNG?

Holy shit. Star Trek “fans” are such assholes.

Reading the official Star Trek Facebook page there’s a lot of dickheads criticizing this already and bitching about it not being on free TV.

The "All Good Things..." time jump took place 25 years in the future.

I just watched the Collider Videos report from Star Trek Con and they said details on this are very limited and no scripts have been written yet.

Yeah as I said, this is a long way from being ready to air.

You take the Borg
You take the bad
You take them both and there you have
The facts of Trek
The facts of Trek

When the outer-world never seems
To be living up to your dreams
Then suddenly you're finding out
The facts of Trek are all about Q

And even then it was Q fucking with Picard, so it's not necessarily his actual future.

Where does it say it will take place 20 years after TNG? The article was not written well and has several errors. It says fans have been waiting 20 years for Patrick Stewart to return as Picard not that it will take place 20 years after TNG. The last movie with Picard came out in 2002, so it has been only 16 years.

It also keeps referring to the show as the 'New Generation" and not the "Next Generation", which is odd considering they quote Stewart saying "Next Generation" a few sentences later in the article.

I hope he plays the holographic backup Captain in case the real captain dies or craps his pants.

While I'm sure they'll cycle through all of the Next Gen people, they should probably find a place for Gates McFadden in the principle cast.
