“Star Trek: Picard” Preview Images Offer Looks at New & Familiar Faces
Fans of CBS All Access‘ upcoming Star Trek franchise spinoff series Star Trek: Picard have been buzzing about the series when it was first announced, with the release of teasers and trailers doing nothing but dumping a whole lot of fuel on an already blazing dumpster fire of speculation and excitement.
Combine that with the news that Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s own Jonathan Frakes (Cmdr. Will Riker) is reuniting with Patrick Stewart to direct the “second block” of episodes and that a number of ST:TNG cast members will have a presence on the show, and it’s east to see why excitement levels are so high heading into its January 23, 2020, premiere.
Now fans are getting a look at some additional preview images, beginning with a very familar face that’s set to spend a little time in front of the camera, too:
Hanelle Culpepper directed the first two episodes of the season. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Kurtzman, Chabon, Goldsman, Kadin, Stewart, James Duff, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers and Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer as supervising producer.
In an interview with Trek Movie from April 2019, Frakes shared what he could about the upcoming series – and wants fans to know that’s its something worth getting excited about:
Star Trek: Picard will air exclusively on CBS All Access in the United States and will be distributed simultaneously on the global scene by CBS Studios International on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories; and in Canada on Bell Media’s cable networks, Space and Z, and OTT service Crave.
