Engines at full, Patrick Stewart is returning to the role that made him an international superstar on Star Trek.

After months of speculation, Stewart confirmed through his Twitter account that he is indeed making it so and reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. While the specifics of his return after still unknown, the project will air on the premium streaming service CBS All-Access with rumors of it being Star Trek: The Next Generation revival starring the veteran actor.

Stewart’s full statement regarding his return as Picard reads below:

I will always be very proud to have been part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected and delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life from him when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.
