Star Trek: Picard went into season two before its debut

Sir Patrick Stewart Cemented Into Hollywood History At Famed Chinese Theatre

"Breaking new directors, new writers, younger writers, composers, and we've taken one of the composers and now put them on one of the series".

However, after showrunner Michael Chabon sent Sir Patrick a brief on what they were planning to do - and it grew from there to the series it became.

Star Trek: Picard will premiere on CBS All Access on January 23.

Given the breadth of what we're already getting - an entirely new Trek ongoing in Discovery, a bold sequel series in Picard, supporting spinoffs like Section 31 and the Short Treks anthologies, and then two wildly different tonal approaches to the franchise in Lower Decks and the Nick show - it's interesting to ponder just what else could now be under consideration at CBS. The likes of Jonathan Frakes (William T Riker) and Brent Spiner (Data) are also coming back to play their famous TNG roles. (Disclosure: CBS All Access and CNET are owned by ViacomCBS). So positioning the Borg as the villain made a lot of sense.

"It's totally possible", Kurtzman said on the possibility of Worf returning.

"We've started working on Season 2, and we have a really excellent story, I think-and a very surprising one", Kurtzman said.

Oscars 2020: Nominations announcement under way
Much of the focus so far this award season has been on the lack of women and ethnic minority filmmakers honored. The 92nd Academy Awards premieres Sunday, February 9th at 8 PM Eastern on ABC.

Stewart enjoyed the idea of tackling a new version of the villains of a lifetime.

The actor Del Arco mocks that the Borg who disconnected from the collective, as seen in the Two-Part Descent of TNG, have become more human over time, but noted that the Borg collective in general remains a threat. Jeri Ryan will also return as Seven of Nine, from Star Trek: Voyager.

'It has been far easier than I expected to make this transition [back] almost 20 years later.

Are you excited about Terry Matalas taking the reigns on Star Trek: Picard season 2?

He continued pointing out the Romulans will look different physically, "You'll see some Romulans that are just about the ears, you'll see some with the ears and deeper ridges in their foreheads... so I have to believe that there are different iterations of Klingons, depending on where they are from". Let's hope Picard lives up to the hype - which I'm sure it will - so CBS/Viacom will have the confidence to boldly go where the series has never gone before.
