Amazon Prime lands Jean-Luc Picard Star Trek series: Where will it not air?

CBS All Access is bringing a Jean-Luc Picard Star Trek series. If you live outside of North America, there’s some excellent news. It’s coming to Amazon Prime.

It’s time to boldly go where no man has gone before. Okay, so, we’ve all gone to Amazon Prime before, but not to watch Jean-Luc Picard in the upcoming still-untitled Star Trek project.

Amazon has landed the global rights to stream the CBS All Access series. It’s exciting news but there are two countries that you won’t be able to stream in. You’ve likely already guessed the United States is one of those countries, but where is the other?

It’s all about Canada. Unfortunately, those North of the Wall (sorry, wrong franchise) north of the border won’t be able to stream the series through Amazon Prime Video. This is because Canadians have the ability to stream CBS All Access.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the series, this follows Sir Patrick Stewart in the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard once more. Once the captain of the Enterprise, we follow him on his new venture in the world of Star Trek.

Hanelle Culpepper is directing the first two episodes of the series, marking the first time a female has directed the pilot/debut episode of a Star Trek episode in its whole 53-year history. Sir Patrick Stewart will also be the executive producer so we can make sure the series is everything we’d hope for with Picard back in the lead.

Like other Global Prime Originals, such as American Gods, the series will air each episode the day after the episodes drop on CBS All Access.
