Calling all Trekkies! CBS All Access is lifting its paywall this month and giving everyone completely free access to the streaming service, including Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard. This will not be the team's final outing, however, as CBS All Access has already renewed Picard for Season 2. Via Instagram, series star Patrick Stewart announced that CBS All Access is running a promotion.
The first season of Star Trek: Picard stars Patrick Stewart as he returns to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, alongside Isa Briones (Dahj), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal "Chris" Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadaway (Narek) and Evan Evagora (Elnor).
"We're thrilled to announce plans for a second season before the series' debut, and we are confident that Star Trek fans and new viewers alike will be captured by the stellar cast and creative team's meticulously crafted story when it premieres on January 23". Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Star Trek: Discovery creator Alex Kurtzman revealed in March that it will be "a very different show from Discovery".
The 10-episode first season of "Picard" opened with the beloved "Trek" captain retired and unhappy on his family vineyard in France, until he gets roped into a new mission that includes Romulans, the Borg, and a vast conspiracy involving the android offspring of Picard's (departed) colleague Lt. Commander Data (Brent Spiner). All episodes of the series will be available for streaming in their entirety.
