Today it was announced that Patrick Stewart is returning to his role as Jean-Luc Picard on a new Star Trek Show on CBS All Access.
It is an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Read my full statement in the photo. #StarTrek @cbsallaccess Photo: @shervinfoto pic.twitter.com/8Ynuj3RBNm

This comes shortly after CBS announced that this fall they will be releasing a set of short standalone Star Trek episodes called Short Treks. These 10 to 15-minute episodes will focus on key characters from Star Trek Discovery and the Star Trek Universe as a whole and be available exclusively on CBS All Acces.
“Each episode will deliver closed-ended stories while revealing clues about what’s to come in future Star Trek: Discovery episodes,” said Alex Kurtzman. “They’ll also introduce audiences to new characters who may inhabit the larger world of Star Trek.”
For now there is no date set for the new Star Trek show focusing on Jean-Luc Picard.
