Sir Patrick Stewart in talks to return to Star Trek as Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Patrick Stewart may be beamed back for another Star Trek series. Sir Patrick, 77, is “close to securing a deal” to return as Captain Jean-Luc Picard for a reboot of the Generation series. The star is keen to reprise his most famous part – and deals are close to being struck, says a TV source. CBS is working on projects to expand their Trekkie universe after the mammoth success of the Star Trek: Discovery series on Netflix.
