Sir Patrick Stewart will reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard! 

Stewart was open to the idea in the past. But The Hollywood Report confirmed that Stewart would star in a new CBS All Access Star Trek series. Don't worry; it's not a reboot but a journey we have yet to see Picard go before.

The Star Trek legend told unsuspecting Trekkers that the rumors are accurate at a Trek Con in Las Vegas. 

"With overwhelming joy, it’s a privilege to welcome Sir Patrick Stewart back to the Star Trek fold. 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," showrunner Alex Kurtzman told THR.

The details for the new series and where we can find Picard in his later years are under wraps. Do you think this is a good move on Stewart's part to return to the character after 20 years?
