Don’t have CBS All Access and missing out on Picard? Well if you have nine free hours between this moment and Thursday, you can catch up just in time for the season 1 finale thanks to a free CBS All Access trial. Sir Patrick Stewart himself tweeted out the news on Tuesday afternoon, along with the promo code ‘GIFT’ which anyone in the US can use through April 23 to watch his show, along with any others available.

Thus far, Picard season one has closely followed the character’s return to the final frontier – and the constant mishaps along the way that may or may not be attributable to his hubris. Stewart is joined by Allison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Soji), Michelle Hurd (Rafi) and Santiago Cabrera (Rios) in a pursuit to protect Data’s legacy, and also to not be killed along the way.
Along with the CBS All Access trial, Stewart tweeted a Picard promo video featuring himself Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman, astronaut Mae Jemison and Anson Mount and Soneuqa Martin-Green of Star Trek: Discovery talking about the franchise’s importance and themes of becoming a better human in a time like waves hands this.
Interestingly, the CBS All Access trial works for the $5.99 and $9.99 per month option, so you could choose to have limited or no commercials (or accidentally pick limited commercials without realizing). CBS has not yet provided audience data for the show, other than to say it’s the most watched on its originals.
The tenth episode and season finale of Picard airs Thursday, March 26.
