This week sees the arrival of Empire’s 100 Greatest Movies Of The Century issue – and bundled alongside it is the new issue of Pilot TV, which boldly goes into one of the most anticipated TV events of the year: the long-awaited, largely-unexpected return of Patrick Stewart’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Picard. This issue’s cover feature includes Stewart himself sharing the unlikely story of his return to Starfleet – talking alongside producer Alex Kurtzman about the sci-fi saga’s astonishing comeback.
Also inside this issue, we sit down with the cast and showrunner of Doctor Who to talk all things Series 11, get down and dirty with Season 2 of Netflix’s Sex Education, blast off to outer space with Armando Iannucci for his new sci-fi comedy Avenue 5, interview David Schwimmer for his spy spoof Intelligence, dive deep into the impact of The Wire featuring brand new interviews with cast and showrunner David Simon, map out the office from The Office, and much, much more. It’s a jam-packed issue full of interviews, reviews, and new looks at all the upcoming series worth your time.
