    Forgive me if this had been posted somewhere already (it seems that'd frequently the case) but has anyone taken the time to examine existing plot points to project what the Picard Show is going to be about? From my research, TNG seems to give us some tantalizing hints:

    - Picard will be retired and spending his days working on his vineyard when we first meet him
    -He'll be slowly going insane due to irumodic syndrome (it was established in more than one timeline that he has this)
    - He'll have married and then divorced Beverly Crusher
    - The Enterprise-D may or may not have been salvaged or rebuilt as a dreadnought cruiser under the command of Will Riker
    - Data is a professor at Cambridge who Picard occasionally visits

    What else do we know as canon about Picard's future?

    I have an idea. Picard returns to Vagra 2 with a psychiatrist to help Armus deal with his anger issues. After long talks Armus begins to let go of his hate. Picard thinks he's ready to rejoin civilization and end his long exile. In the end Armus decides to move to Risa and use his abilities to become a living mud bath for the Risians to enjoy.

    Instead, Picard returns to Viagra Ultra.

    Maybe he will join crew of the Orville. You know, for the dick jokes

    None of that is 'canon' to Picard's future. What we saw in AGT was just a possible future, one that isn't going to pass now that Picard knows about it.

    Didn't they definitively diagnose him with iruomodic syndrome in the timeline that hadn't been tampered with, though? I didn't see him do anything in AGT to undo his own disease.

    I'm going to bet that the new show will have nothing whatsoever to do with that disease.

    Wait, wait! I saw this one 24 years ago.

    Why on Earth do you think they will simply recycle All Good Things?

    He would be an awesome guest star. He has an amazing comedic role in American Dad.

    And here I was thinking this thread would reveal hints taken from an interview or something relevant to the actual plan.

    Nothing in the future in AGT is set in stone. We know nothing about Picard since Nemesis. Patrick Stewart hinted that it might not be the Picard we expect/know which is a vague nothing that only really meant that the show was not TNG phase 2. Nobody knows what a person is going to be like after 20 years have passed.

    I would say there's no chance. They are going to do something new. The only thing I hope is that it's not too far removed from the Picard we know.

    You're right. There's a fair chance that it'll be some alternate Picard from the pseudo-prime timeline that Discovery exists in. Given that it's a CBS All Access production, I do consider the odds to be very high that it will ignore most established canon about him, as has been done with their current offering, in favor of a 'grittier' take on the character and the universe he exists in.

    Which, ironically, is a perfect case for irumodic-syndrome-induced mental instability and all the grimdark it would bring with it.

    I had this dream the other night where the Picard show had them flying around in a Galaxy-class ship except DSC-ized :lol:

    I hear they are going to finally dub him with a French accent just to make canon work better with him being from France.

    Nah, they're retconning his name to John Luke.

    Yes, I had been hoping for Sir Patrick as a Picardalike former legendary starship captain who Mercer utterly worships, but Picardalike cannot stand him or his adulation.

    It may still happen, but I'd say the chances have decreased a lot.

    Au contraire mon amis! I would be VERY supprised if this happens. Stewart is part of the writers room...so I think he´s got quite an infulence on plot. I really can´t see him agreeing to anything that goes against canon. He´s just not that type of person to me.

    If you saw his speech when the show was announced, he ended it with "This may not be the Picard you remember."
