Amazon Prime Video and CBS Studios International are making it so, striking an exclusive international agreement for the upcoming Star Trek series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his signature role as Jean-Luc Picard. Amazon Prime Video will be the exclusive streaming home of the new series in more than 200 countries and territories, outside of the U.S. and Canada, it was announced today in a joint statement by CBS Studios International and Amazon Prime Video. Under the multi-year agreement with CBS, each episode will be available on Amazon Prime Video within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere.

The new Star Trek series features Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as the venerable Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: Next Generation. The series will follow this iconic character in the next chapter of his life.

“There’s only one word that can begin to describe Sir Patrick Stewart as Starship Commander Jean-Luc Picard, and that’s ‘legendary,’” said series executive producer Alex Kurtzman. “We are thrilled beyond measure to have him back in command, bringing the optimistic messages of Star Trek to audiences around the world.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with CBS to bring the newest edition of the storied Star Trek franchise to our international Amazon Prime Video customers,” said Brad Beale, Vice President, Worldwide Content Licensing for Amazon Prime Video. “With the incredible Sir Patrick Stewart returning as the beloved Jean-Luc Picard, we’re excited we can give Trek fans both old and new the opportunity to see him back in action. It’s a terrific addition to our already robust catalog of exclusive Amazon Prime Video content.”

“For 50 years, the Star Trek series have been a global sensation, spanning generations and audiences of all ages. It’s an honor to welcome Sir Patrick Stewart back for what is sure to be another world-class extension of the historic franchise,” said Armando Nuņez, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Global Distribution Group. “We look forward to working with the team at Amazon Prime Video to bring this next chapter of the incredible Star Trek franchise to its passionate international fan base.”

In the U.S., the series will be available exclusively on CBS All Access, CBS’ direct-to-consumer digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, which is available on all major digital platforms including Amazon Prime Video Channels and Fire TV.

Alongside Stewart, the series will also star Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful), Isa Briones (American Crime Story: Versace), Santiago Cabrera (Salvation), newcomer Evan Evagora, and Michelle Hurd (Blindspot). The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers. Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) will serve as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer will serve as supervising producer.

Re: Unnamed Star Trek Picard Series

It will be interesting to see where this sits with fans after being off air for so long. Discovery being a bit more fast paced and in your face and the orville being laid back

I agree, I imagine there was a fierce bidding war for it but given that a) Netflix has got Discovery and b) how high profile the new series is going to be you would have though Netflix would want it at all costs. It is good for Amazon though to add a quality scifi series to their portfolio to join the like of The Expanse.






The new series is called Star Trek: Picard

I'll update the thread title accordingly because I am sure there will be much discussion and excitement going forward.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

Anyhow.

I’m very excited about this. Through Discovery they’ve learned a few lessons about how far you can “visually reboot” Trek without losing the fan base, and Sir Patrick has an exec producer credit on this new show. He’s a damn fine actor, he made Picard what he is, you can be sure he has a very good idea how the character developed post-Starfleet. I think we’re in for a treat.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

First I am so excited to have Picard back on screens but am gutted it's gone to Amazon.

Secondly there was a screen shot released from the teaser shown to the media and it shows Picard in black with a Starfleet officer/cadet in background wearing what looks like a DS9/Voyager era Starfleet uniform.

I think this will keep the visual aesthetic we know.

fantastic, if they are clever they have listened to all the grumblings about Discovery and are going back to core Trek. I can't wait to see what the rating are like.

not officially for every series but I am sure they'll been keen to tout them if they are good and I imagine the media will be filing official requests for them because everyone is going to want a comparison between Discovery and Picard and I think Netflix/CBS and Amazon are eager to know which is the winning formula with viewers. I think the popular acclaim of The Orville has already steered them in the right direction. It is really sad but in terms of learning, the interesting thing for me now in terms pure Trek and going back to its roots is whether or not we can get a proper space intro/title sequence with a proper theme. I don't want to jinx it but I am very hopeful it will all be done properly and we'll love it.
