Patrick Stewart is playing an active role with the development of a new Star Trek series for CBS All Access sharing a behind-the-scenes photo online.
The fan-favorite actor tweeted a picture of himself with the planned series’ writers and producers this morning including longtime Star Trek fan Akiva Goldsman who helped produce the first season of Star Trek: Discovery and wrote an episode for the season.

Stewart had surprised fans around the world when he announced last month that he would reprise his iconic role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard on a new series for the premium streaming service. As part of that announcement, Stewart revealed he had been meeting with writers to take a more visible role with the new series’ creation.
Stewart famously portrayed Picard across all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and reprised the role in 1994’s Star Trek Generations, 1996’s Star Trek: First Contact, 1998’s Star Trek: Insurrection, and 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis.
Details about the upcoming series, including its final title and release date, are currently unknown but it is expected to premiere on CBS All Access.
