CBS All Access is making it so. According to Alex Kurtzman, showrunner on Star Trek:Discovery…

“With overwhelming joy, it’s a privilege to welcome Sir Patrick Stewart back to the Star Trek fold. For over 20 years, fans have hoped for the return of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and that day is finally here. We can’t wait to forge new ground, surprise people, and honor generations both new and old.”

  • No real details were given, and though Kurtzman says Captain Jean-Luc Picard is returning, I’m guessing that Jean-Luc will have gotten a promotion or two.  It has been a few decades.  How does Admiral Jean-Luc Picard sound?  And when Kurtzman says they are going to ‘honor Generations both old and new.,’ I’m also guessing that some of the original members of the Next Generations crew may stop by.  So hit the gym people. Though at this point it’s a total wait-and-see scenario….
