CBS All Access announced the renewal on Sunday Star Trek: Picard before the premiere of the science fiction show.

The X-Men and Star Trek actor just recently went on an interview with Varietyto help promote his new series, Star Trek: Picard, and during the discussion with the entertainment news outlet, Stewart made a decision to share his thoughts on Brexit and Trump, two things that tie into the story and theme of his new show.

The 79-year-old Shakespearean actor had a successful stage and television career - peppered with a series of relatively minor film roles - but he gained widespread fame with his portrayal of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" beginning in 1987.

Specifically, it was Julie McNamara, executive vice president of original content at CBS All Access who was in charge of the news. More recently he was the creator/showrunner for the TV adaptation of 12 Monkeys. Season 1, which releases on January 23rd, can even comprise 10 episodes.

There is now also a Trimming option so you can shorten the length of your Boomerang and choosing where it starts and ends. Offering a new update to Instagram's mobile app, the developer team has now introduced 3 new " Boomerang " modes.

Star Trek: Picard season one cast members include Sir Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Dahj), Evan Evagora (Elnor), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal Rios) and Harry Treadaway (Narek) along with special guest stars Brent Spiner (Data), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi).

The collection follows Stewart's Picard 20 years after the occasions of Star Trek: Nemesis.

We so far know very little about to actually expect from this new Star Trek show, but such is the love that fans have in both Stewart himself and writer and executive producer Akiva Goldsman, that people don't seem to care too much for those minor details and are likely just happy to watch the show regardless.

Prior to the ceremony, Sir Patrick was introduced by Rick Berman, executive producer of "Star Trek: The Next Generation".
