Sir Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, decades after leaving his original role on Star Trek: Next Generation, in the series to be released on 24 January 2020. Picard is in the next chapter of his life – and it’s not at Starfleet.
The first trailer, released on 20 July 2019, shows that, though Picard may be retired, and he’s an aged, traumatised version of the captain we once knew, doesn’t mean that his life’s mission is over.
Far from it – the trailer shows Picard gathering a new crew together, a mix of familiar faces and brand-new characters, when a mysterious young woman enters his life and claims that her life is at risk unless she’s at Picard’s side.
Watch the trailer and tell us it doesn’t hit you in the feels.
Update: New trailer from October 2019
South Africans will able to watch the highly anticipated show from Friday, 24 January 2020!
