It’s finally time. Star Trek: Picard is returning and fans couldn’t be more excited. But you can’t watch the new series featuring Patrick Stewart on CBS.

Star Trek: Picard premieres on CBS All Access sometime after 12 AM Pacific on January 23 (which is after 3 a.m. Eastern on Thursday the 23rd.)

Fans are so excited about Star Trek: Picard, they can hardly contain their enthusiasm. It’s been so long, and finally Patrick Stewart is back on TV with a new Star Trek series. Does it get any better than that?
Here’s another trailer showing just how epic the new series will be. Yes, that’s the Enterprise D that you see.
Star Trek: Picard will take place at the end of the 24th Century. This is the furthest in time that we’ve seen any Star Trek series so far. The last Star Trek: The Next Generation movie, Star Trek: Nemesis, took place in 2379. Now Picard will take place 20 years after the movie.
The Next Generation TV series, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager all took place in the same time period, about a century after Star Trek: The Original Series. Then there was Enterprise, which took place about a century before The Original Series. And Discovery took place somewhere between TOS and Enterprise.
Here’s a sneak peek of the beginning of the show:
The cast for this new series includes Patrick Stewart (Picard), Isa Briones (Dahj), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadway (Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor). Special guests will include Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Data), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), and Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine.)
Fans can’t contain their excitement, and you won’t have to wait much longer to see the first episode.
