The Next Generation series finale "All Good Things" told us that 25 years after that episode in one possible future, Jean-Luc would be retired to the vineyard.
Next Generation aired 176 episodes in total, starting in 1987 during the Reagan Era and ending in 1994 during Bill Clinton's first term.
Check out the Star Trek: Picard trailer and poster below.
The series focuses on the next chapter in the life of Picard, the captain of the starship USS Enterprise-D. Not many TV shows have the guts to put a almost eighty-year-old man at the center of the cast - but then, not many actors are Patrick Stewart, and not many characters are Jean Luc Picard.
Stewart, Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers. My guess is that when it does launch, subscriptions for Amazon Prime are likely to go up as this is the kind of character and series that has the potential to bring rabid fans along with it. He's a wonderful collaborator and I can't say enough about the unbelievable and unexpected benefit of the process.
Star Trek: Picard will air on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Amazon Prime Video in the UK. And based on the just-released teaser trailer, it sounds like the life he's seeking out is. his own. It continues the vineyard imagery and includes the tagline for the show, "The end is only the beginning". A current CBS All Access subscription costs $5.99 per month with reduced commercials or $9.99 per month for a commercial-free plan. Have your say in the comments.
