CBS Pitching Patrick Stewart And Star Trek: Picard Cast For Emmy Consideration

CBS Pitching Patrick Stewart And Star Trek: Picard Cast For Emmy Consideration
We’re heading into Emmy Awards season, and CBS is starting up its “For Your Consideration” campaign on many of its shows. Trek fans will be pleased to know that the network is pushing hard on Star Trek: Picard, which aired its smash hit debut season earlier this year. Fan and critical response was positive for the bold Next Generation sequel series, and CBS is hoping to turn that into a swathe of Emmy nominations for the cast and crew.

As well as suggesting the show for Outstanding Drama Series, the campaign to get the one and only Sir Patrick Stewart a nom for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series is leading the way. Stewart has received four Emmy nominations over his illustrious career, but never for Trek, so it would be a big deal if he could get some recognition for Picard.

What’s more, CBS is pitching

Jonathan Frakes Expects To Return For Star Trek: Picard Season 2

Jonathan Frakes Expects To Return For Star Trek: Picard Season 2
It’s fair to say that Star Trek: Picard has proven to be a runaway success for the Powers That Be over at CBS.

Even before the premiere of season 1’s two-part finale, “Et in Arcadia Ego,” CBS issued the green light on season 2, sparking speculation that Picard‘s second chapter would feature even more fan-favorites from The Next Generation. That remains to be seen, of course, but during a recent interview with ComicBook.com, William Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes, hinted at potentially returning to direct future episodes of Star Trek: Picard.

If you’ve been paying close attention to Picard‘s maiden voyage, you’ll know Frakes helmed both “Absolute Candor” and “Stardust City Rag,” so he’s certainly a prime candidate for CBS’ roster of filmmakers going into the second season.

Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Cast, Release Date, and News

Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Cast, Release Date, and News
CBS All Access officially greenlit Star Trek: Picard Season 1 before the first season had aired a single episode. According to Deadline, which first broke the report, Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes. This is the same as Season 1, which just finished airing. If you’ve yet to check it out, you can watch it for free through April 24th.

The series will lose its season 1 showrunner for its second season, as Michael Chabon will step down to work on a different TV series for CBS’ sister network Showtime: an adaptation of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Chabon will stay on as an executive producer for Picard season 2 alongside Alex Kurtzman, Akiva Goldsman, Patrick Stewart, Terry Matalas, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth, with Aaron Baiers and Kristin Beyer serving as co-executive producers.

The Star Trek: Picard Podcast: Sir Patrick Stewart On Today’s Finale, Season 2, Mortality & “Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On”

  • Deadline
The Star Trek: Picard Podcast: Sir Patrick Stewart On Today’s Finale, Season 2, Mortality & “Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On”
Editors note: The Star Trek: Picard Podcast is a weekly series of in-depth and informed discussions with the stars and creative team behind CBS All Access’ series on the ideas, strategies and geopoetics behind the 10-episode first season of the Patrick Stewart-led sci-fi drama. The podcast is sponsored by CBS All Access and hosted by Deadline’s Senior Editor Dominic Patten.

“He has no idea where he is at, because he has no idea what the future now might hold for him,” Sir Patrick Stewart says of where the former Enterprise captain is at the end of the Star Trek: Picard Season 1 finale, which just dropped on CBS All Access. “Which is what I think makes the matter of Season 2 so exciting,” he adds on our podcast today of where things could go for Picard and his crew next.

With the 10-episode first season behind them, with thoughts for friends lost, some verse from the poet Horace, mortality and this time of coronavirus, listen here to Sir Patrick and Picard Ep Akiva Goldsman on “Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2”:

No extended recaps, but helmed by Oscar winner Goldsman, the conclusion of the two-part Picard finale finds Jean-Luc revitalized and heading into the galaxy with Jeri Ryan, Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera and Evan Evagora at the very end. How the 94-year old Starfleet Admiral got there in the Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman penned ender is, of course, as Picard and William Shakespeare say “such stuff as dreams are made on.”

Or as Sir Patrick says on this last podcast of the first season: “I decided, if ever there was a time to live, it was right now.”

As I said, take as listen, and then please join me in thanking the whole Picard team and everyone at CBS Studios, especially, Lauri Metrose, Jennifer Verti and Bonnie Kim. Also, a massive thanks to Sir Patrick, Akiva, Alex Kurtzman, Jeri Ryan, Jonathan Frakes, Jason Zimmerman, Kristen Beyer, Michael Chabon, Jonathan Del Arco, and Hanelle Culpepper for joining us on the podcast these past 10 weeks. And a big shout out to our amazing producer David Janove for all his great work.

Thanks for listening.

How 'Star Trek' Actor Overcame His Patrick Stewart Jitters

How 'Star Trek' Actor Overcame His Patrick Stewart Jitters
When details of Star Trek: Picard were announced last year, fans were surprised to see that their favorite (and former) Enterprise captain would be joined by basically the Trek version of Legolas from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies.

"That's what I've been hearing," Evan Evagora tells The Hollywood Reporter. The New Zealand-based actor plays Elnor, the sword-wielding Romulan assassin-in-training and protector of Patrick Stewart's iconic hero. And according to Evagora, the surprise factor that an "outside-the-box" character like Elnor brings to the franchise was very intentional. 

"We, or at least I,...

Star Trek: Picard’Episode Nine: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1 review

Star Trek: Picard’Episode Nine: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1 review
Contains Spoilers

The weaknesses of Star Trek: Picard comes to bear, in the clumsy first part of the two-part season one finale.

Star Trek: Picard has certainly had its moments and a number of very strong elements along the way, despite a spluttering start. The stage was a little rocky going into the start of the season finale, but there was undoubtedly promise too. Sadly, that promise gets a little lost along the way in ‘Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1’, an episode lacking the smarts to truly excite, and sometimes coming across a little lazy in the process.

The episode starts off promising enough, with what is possibly the strongest action sequence of the series so far, and one that ends in bombastic fashion. Arriving at Soji’s (Isa Briones) home planet populated by advanced synthetics, Picard and his crew crash land pursued by Narek (Harry Treadaway) and accompanied

Seven Of Nine Star Trek Spinoff Reportedly In The Works At CBS

Seven Of Nine Star Trek Spinoff Reportedly In The Works At CBS
Star Trek: Picard has brought back many familiar faces from Star Trek past aside from Sir Patrick Stewart across its first season, but the most significant has definitely been Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine. The former Voyager breakout star has been a natural fit for the Borg-centric storyline, with the show offering a fascinating, updated version of the character. Fans have been clamoring for more from her, then, and it seems like CBS has listened.

We Got This Covered has heard that a spinoff for Seven is in the works for CBS All Access. Details are still scarce at this early stage, but this intel comes to us via the same sources who previously told us that Anson Mount’s Captain Pike was getting his own show, too, and that Star Trek: Discovery has already been renewed for a fifth season – both of which have since been confirmed by The Geeks Worldwide.

New Star Trek: Picard Photos Tease Season 1’s Penultimate Chapter
This week, Star Trek: Picard reaches the first half of its two-part finale. The episode, titled “Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1,” will see Jean-Luc and the crew of La Sirena traveling to the planet Coppelius to return Soji to the place where she and her late twin sister Dahj were created by Bruce Maddox, the place where the whole story began. And now, ahead of the episode’s arrival this Thursday, a small selection of images have released, giving us our first look at the season’s penultimate installment.

All four promo photos feature the man himself, as played by Sir Patrick Stewart.

New Star Trek: Picard Photos Tease Jean-Luc Facing A Devastating Truth
Star Trek: Picard has really been heating up the drama these past few episodes, and this week’s installment will continue to bring the first season of the Patrick Stewart-headed sequel series closer to an exciting conclusion. Episode 8, titled “Broken Pieces,” will see Jean-Luc and the crew of La Sirena – Raffi (Michelle Hurd), Rios (Santiago Cabrera), Jurati (Alison Pill) and Soji (Isa Briones) – discovering the secret truth about the dark incident that originally forced Picard to quit Starfleet in the first place.

What’s more, after taking a break last week, Jeri Ryan is also back as Seven of Nine. While Picard and crew remain on their ship, Seven and Elnor (Evan Evagora) are on board the Artifact. But the teaser for the episode hints that being back on a Borg Cube could spell disaster for the Xb. The final shot of the trailer even heavily hints that she’s about to be re-assimilated.

Plot threads collide in this sixth episode of the Amazon Prime Star Trek series that continues its build of momentum to deliver an action-packed offering that also nicely ties in the ghosts of Picard’s past.

Picard and his crew are quickly on their way to the Romulan controlled Borg artifact, the location of Soji, who is working as a part of the reclamation project aboard the abandoned Borg Cube. With Picard forced to face one of the darkest memories of his past assimilated with the Borg, he must also hurry to find Soji before the Romulan spy Narek manages to force her to discover the truth of what she is so that he may find out where she is from before removing her from the equation.

Once again, this is an episode of Picard that thrives more on a sense of frenetic pacing, combining elements of Picard

Star Trek: Picard May’ve Just Teased The Death Of [Spoilers]

Star Trek: Picard May’ve Just Teased The Death Of [Spoilers]
This week’s episode of Star Trek: Picard was one of the most action-filled to date, with Patrick Stewart’s character having to deal with his memories of being part of the Borg. The mission of the La Sirena crew to locate Soji Asha took them to a reclaimed Borg Cube, and Picard to a reunion with Hugh, another former Borg. With the episode ending with Elnor and Hugh staying on the Cube to allow Picard to escape with Soji, fans are now wondering whether the two characters will survive for the rest of the season.

According to EpicStream, Star Trek: Picard may already be setting us up for the death of Elnor, who beams onto the Cube to take down Romulan guards before they can arrest Picard, Soji and Hugh in the Borg Queen’s teleportation chamber. While Picard wants Elnor to join them to rendezvous with La Sirena on Nepenthe,

Star Trek: Picard Photos Tease Jean-Luc’s Newfound Allies
CBS has dropped a batch of new promo images for tomorrow’s episode of Star Trek: Picard. Titled “The Impossible Box,” this marks the sixth episode of the series’ first season, which means we’re now already in the second half of its slim 10-episode run. So far on the show, then, we’ve seen Sir Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc head back out into space on his new ship La Sirena with a new crew to boot. And these photos showcase Picard’s newfound allies.

Picard’s misfit crew consists of first officer Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd), pilot Chris Rios (Santiago Cabrera), doctor Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill) and Romulan warrior Elnor (Evan Evagora). These pics also check in on the secondary plot aboard the Borg Cube that’s the base of the Romulan Reclamation Project, where Narek (Harry Treadaway) is attempting to manipulate Soji (Isa Briones), Data’s secret daughter.

Okay, here we go! This week’s episode of Star Trek: Picard, after an intriguing pilot and two episodes which did get a bit too bogged down in plot and setup, starts to really find its feet in this fourth episode, very much proving to be the first episode that has found that more natural balance between being something new as well as reminiscent of classic Trek.

The episode sees Picard’s newly assembled crew of ex-Starfleet first officer Raffi (Michelle Hurd), cigar chomping pilot Chris (Santiago Cabrera) and scientist Dr. Jurati (Alison Pill), head out on their first stop on their journey to Freeworld to seek out Bruce Maddox, the man responsible for creating Data’s android offspring. That first stop is to make a detour to the planet Vashti, one of the sites that Picard and Raffi established as a Romulan refugee camp, before the synthetic

Meet the New Cast of Star Trek: Picard

Star Trek: Picard features an impressive lineup of newer faces alongside its Next Generation veterans.

Star Trek: Picard certainly has plenty for nostalgic fans of previous Star Trek shows to feast on, starting with the return of Patrick Stewart as the legendary title character, along with other Star Trek: The Next Generation cast members like Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiner.
