Star Trek Picard Series Writer’s Room Assembles

Pre-production on the new Star Trek series starring Patrick Stewart has begun! As shown in a photo, tweeted by Stewart, the writer’s room has been assembled and planning for the new show is underway.

In the photo, Stewart, who will be an executive producer on the series, is seen with James Duff, Diandra Pendleton-Thompson, Akiva Goldsman, Kirsten Beyer and Michael Chabon.

McAvoy Interested in Playing a Young Picard

Actor James McAvoy showed interest in playing a younger version of Picard in the series, when he replied to Stewart’s Instagram post, asking “Need a flashback guy????” and “Just saying @sirpatstew I’ve got previous experience and will work for autographs.”

McAvoy has played a younger version Professor Charles Xavier in multiple X-Men films, a role Patrick Stewart most recently played in the 2017 film Logan.

First announced at the 2018 Star Trek Las Vegas convention, the series will star Stewart as he returns to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, 20 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. He last played the role of Picard on the big screen in 2002 in Star Trek: Nemesis.

UPDATE: To clear up any confusion, the image at the top of this article is from X-Men: Days of Future Past, which Stewart and McAvoy both appeared in, and not from the new Picard series.
