Amazon has announced that the eagerly awaited new Star Trek TV show, Star Trek: Picard, will launch on Amazon Prime worldwide, outside of the US and Canada, on January 24 2020. The announcement was made at New York Comic Con yesterday when Sir Patrick Stewart debuted a new Star Trek: Picard trailer during the series’ New York Comic Con panel at Madison Square Garden.

Following the launch, new episodes of Star Trek: Picard’s 10-episode long first season will be available weekly on Fridays.

The Star Trek: Picard portion of the Star Trek Universe panel, moderated by CBSN anchor and CBS News National Correspondent Vladimir Duthiers, featured a conversation with cast members Sir Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Isa Briones (Dahj), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadaway (Narek) and Evan Evagora (Elnor), alongside executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman and Heather Kadin as well as co-executive producer and director Hanelle Culpepper and supervising producer Kirsten Beyer.

Technical details haven’t been released, although we expect the show to be presented in 4k HDR10+ with 5.1 sound.
