How to Watch ‘Star Trek: Picard’ on CBS All Access Using Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Smart TVs and Mobile
Trekkies all over rejoice as the launch of “Star Trek: Picard” is finally upon us. The show, which stars Sir Patrick Stewart, will make its debut on CBS All Access on Thursday, Jan. 23. The highly anticipated series sees Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard.
In May, CBS All Access dropped the first trailer for the show and even though the main plot wasn’t revealed, the voiceover suggested that Picard “commanded the greatest armada in history” 15 years ago until an “unimaginable” event forced him to leave Starfleet and retire to his family’s infamous vineyard. The first season seems to explore what might have happened.

“Picard” is preceded by “Star Trek: Discovery,” which premiered it’s second season last January. It was set ten years before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission, as shown in the original “Star Trek” series from the 1960s, and chronicled Captain Christopher Pike and the crew of the U.S.S Discovery as they investigated seven mysterious signals.
Although “Picard” hasn’t even premiered yet, it’s already generated enough buzz to be renewed for a second season. Season two will also be made up of 10 episodes and have weekly episodes, according to Deadline.
