Back at the beginning of August, fans were stunned to learn that Sir Patrick Stewart would be returning to the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard for a new Star Trek series.
Set to debut on CBS All Access, the new show hails from Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, and Kirsten Beyer. Kurtzman, Duff, Goldsman, and Chabon will also serve as executive producers on the series along with Stewart, Trevor Roth, Heather Kadin, and Rod Roddenberry. CBS Television Studios will produce.
Now, things appear to be ramping up on the highly anticipated series as Sir Patrick Stewart has shared the first image from the writer's room of the forthcoming series.

The shot features Stewart as well as writers Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff and Diandra Pendleton-Thompson respectively.
While plot details on the new show are being kept under wraps for the time being, it is being described as telling the story of the next chapter of Picard’s life following the events of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
A premiere date has yet to be announced.
Sir Patrick Stewart portrayed Captain Picard throughout seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation from 1987 until 1994. He also appeared in four Star Trek films, which ended with Star Trek: Nemesis all the way back in 2002.
