Whaaaaat! Awesome! I wonder if it's a continuation of his time on the Enterprise, or a different genre of show where he's now a civilian. Perhaps a political drama set on the Atlantis project? An odd-couple sitcom about him and his brother trying to save the vineyard maybe

They killed his brother (and nephew) off in Generations, but if All Good Things... is accurate, it'll probably involve Jean-Luc doddering about the vineyard, plagued by Irumodic Syndrome.

Ahh, I'm a TNG fan but I've not seen all the Trek films. I'd watch an trippy show about Picard's space alzheimers though!

This is terrible news, and to be expected from - wait, sorry, I'm just used to responding to any Star Trek news with a mixture of disappointment and resignation.  This is actually... good news?  Unless Picard is bitter and retired or something as the Star Wars/Star Trek homogenization continues.
Mildly hopeful at this news.

While The Next Generation May be one of my least favoured Star Trek shows (although there are storylines and and individual episodes that are conversely my favourite in all series) I liked Picard as a character, and Patrick Stewart is great! I welcome this!

So long as it isn't about Picard being sucked off into the Mirror Universe by deformed Klingons or accompanying a dying Ryker and a little girl on a quest for a place that only exists in a holocomic, I'll probably like this.

He'll probably be a bored admiral forced to steal a starship for some mission none of the brass believes in or the leader of a band of unconventional archaeologists on the trail of something none of his peers believe in. Or he could be in business with Elim Garak, running a tailor's shop named Make it Sew...

~~~^~~~~~~~

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Or he's Captain Picard on the Enterprise 16 years later still rollin like he do.  Considering that Discovery has had a bit of a polorising effect on fans, it would seem pointless to colour too far outside the lines on this one.

Michael Chabon is involved as well. All the signs are good.

Yaaay! Very excited about this, loved THG. There is not much TV I'd welcome back, but this is one of them.
