Patrick Stewart Is Officially Coming Back In New ‘Star Trek’ Series—And Fans Are So Ready 🙌

Major news broke at Star Trek Las Vegas yesterday when Sir Patrick Stewart announced that he will reprise his role of Jean-Luc Picard on the upcoming CBS All-Access Star Trek series.

Stewart later took to Twitter to share his statement.

“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. 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 with him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear 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. 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.

Patrick”

Twitter erupted with excitement and many people shared personal accounts of the impact Picard had on them.

Things are only impossible until they’re not!
