The new series is not a "Next Generation" reboot but will tell the story of the next chapter of Picard's life. No title or air date was revealed.

LONDON (AP) — One of the great theatrical bromances of our time is coming to the big screen.
Onstage co-stars and offstage pals Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are capping a West End run of Harold Pinter's bruisingly funny "No Man's Land" with a live broadcast to dozens of movie theaters around the world on Thursday. There are repeat screenings over the coming weeks as part of the U.K. National Theatre's NT Live series.
Hugh Jackman is getting a taste of the attention focusing on his appearance that's normally reserved for female celebrities.
The Australian actor posted a picture on Instagram this week giving a thumbs-up to a tray of cooked fish. Some comments say he looks dramatically aged in the photo. Others speculate he was wearing makeup for an upcoming Wolverine film.
