Great news as perennial Star Trek director Jonathan Frakes confirms that he will be directing episodes of the forthcoming Picard show. Speaking with the Writers Experience podcast he laid out his immediate future.

"Now my season looks like Star Trek: Discovery – the new wonderful Star Trek series, the Picard show – which Patrick is launching, and The Orville, which is some people's new Star Trek.

And I just finished The Gifted, which is a sort of X-Men Marvel origins show. So I am back in that world."

 Superb news. Now, if we can get Roxanne Dawson and Robert Duncan McNeil directing as well we'll be rocking.
