Variety
 reports that Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and comic-book author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay, Michael Chabon Presents The Adventures of The Escapist) has been named showrunner for the upcoming CBS All Access series Star Trek: Picard.

The new series, in which Sir Patrick Stewart will reprise one of his most famous roles, will follow the next chapter in the legendary starship captain’s life and is set to debut later this year.

Per the article: “‘Star Trek has been an important part of my way of thinking about the world, the future, human nature, storytelling and myself since I was ten years old,’ said Chabon. ‘I come to work every day in a state of joy and awe at having been entrusted with the character and the world of Jean-Luc Picard, with this vibrant strand of the rich, intricate and complex tapestry that is Trek.’”
