Sir Patrick Stewart said: I feel I'm ready to return to him [Picard] for the same reason - to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often dark times.

Stewart will also be an executive producer of the upcoming series that will be available on CBS's video-on-demand service.

The new Star Trek television series will premiere in fall of 2019, but we still have no storyline or any details about the plot.
