The as yet untitled Star Trek: Picard series featuring the return of Patrick Stewart is now under the lights as filming has begun.
Lights, camera and boldly go again as the return of Captain Jean Luc Picard is now a fully fledged reality as filming begun yesterday on the latest offering from CBS All Access. Rumours it seems, of the shows postponement have been greatly exaggerated.
The news was revealed by Executive Producer Michael Chabon via an Instagram post which has since been deleted. The post was of a picture of a chair from the set of the Picard series featuring Chabons name accompanied by the text ‘First Day’, followed by the hashtag #untitledpicardproject

The reason as to why the post was deleted is unknown, one can only speculate it was too soon for CBS to announce filming and Michael Cabon was asked to remove it, maybe CBS have a bigger reveal planned which could include the series title. Hopefully over the next few weeks we can expect to see a lot more information coming out of CBS including plot information, set photos and publicity images.
Star Trek: Picard continues the adventures of the former Captain of the USS Enterprise NCC1701-D following the events of the destruction of Romulus and the disappearance of Ambassador Spock which as we know these events led to the Kelvin Timeline in J..J Abrams 2009 Star Trek film, however Picard’s new series is set firmly in the Prime Universe.
Confirmed cast members include, Isa Briones, Harry Treadway, Santiago Cabera, Alison Pill, Evan Evagora and Michelle Hurd. Picard is due to premier at the end of 2019.
