Star Trek: The Next Generation Reboot With Patrick Stewart Reportedly in Development

Rumors of the Picard-centric reboot come amid Alex Kurtzman extending his CBS contract for a planned expansion of the Star Trek TV universe.



According to a THR article, there are unconfirmed rumors that CBS TV Studios is developing a Star Trek reboot starring Patrick Stewart in which he would reprise his The Next Generation role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. According to THR's sources, Alex Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman are attached to the potential reboot. Not only is this an unconfirmed project, but THR's sources also say that the deal is far from complete and might not happen. Still, this would be huge news for Star Trek fandom—however you might feel about a Picard-centric reboot.

The rumors of the Picard reboot come amidst Kurtzman renewing his overall deal with CBS Television Studios, extending his contract by five years. This will keep him in partnership with the studio through 2023, for a reported $5 million per year.

Kurtzman was recently made sole showrunner of Star Trek: Discovery following the dismissal of previous co-showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg who left amidst reports of bullying behavior in the writers room. Goldsman, who served as an executive producer on Season 1 of Discovery, also left the show, reportedly due to a clash with the writing staff in terms of management style and personality, so it's interesting that he is still attached to the potential Picard-centric reboot.

In addition to his work on Star Trek: Discovery, Kurtzman's extended deal with CBS Television Studios will include an expansion of the Star Trek franchise on the small screen, including the development of new series, miniseries, and other content, including animation.

While this generally seems like good news for the Star Trek universe, it may also be disappointing, depending on what kind of Star Trek fan you are. While the move represents a reinvestment in the Star Trek TV universe, Kurtzman is not known for critical success. Previously, he has co-written the scripts for Transformers, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. More recently, he directed and co-wrote The Mummy. Not exactly the kind of nuanced science fiction writing Star Trek has, at its best, historically represented.

More news on the expanded Star Trek TV universe as we hear it.

I don't give a fuck about Discovery at this point - I probably wouldn't have watched the second season if not for the injection of Pike, Spock and the Enterprise. Without them, seriously, who cares? Discovery has the lamest cast in the history of Star Trek, by a factor. At best, they're unremarkable. At worst, they are insufferable and annoying as fuck. I don't care about any of them now. At all.

Smart move. Pike is an iconic figure in Trek lore.

The only actor I liked in Discovery well enough to anticipate watching was Tig Nataro, who played the engineer Jett Reno. I had never seen her before and I had no idea that she was a stand up comic. I swear I laughed every time she was on screen. I liked the character of Saru even though the 'sensing death' thing was stupid. Other than that I can't think of anything I'd miss if this replaced Discovery.

Season 2 was way better than season 1. But, when you think about it even with Spock from the beginning, it gets a lot better when Pike and his crew show up and the story line with them ramps up.

Right. I was pretty excited at just the prospect of seeing an earlier version of Spock on the screen, done well. And it was. But the way the three mains (Pike, Spock, Number 1) came across just popped on the screen. Compared to the Discovery cast those three seriously inhabited their characters. They had this immediate chemistry that was fun to watch, like the actors just got it and took off.
