Looking for the Star Trek: Picard episode 5 release date? The latest show in the long-running and ever-popular Star Trek series releases every Thursday on CBS All Access in the US, and every Friday on Amazon Prime Video in international territories, which includes the UK and Australia.

By now you've seen episodes 1-4 of Picard, and JL is finally having Star Trek-shaped adventures on other planets. After a slow burn start to season 1, Picard looks like he's just acquired two new crew members, including Seven of Nine from Voyager and the Romulan Elnor. There are 10 total episodes in Star Trek: Picard season one that will release weekly, and a season 2 has already been confirmed. 

Below, we'll explain when you can watch Star Trek: Picard episode 5, and when we expect the reason of season one to arrive on CBS All Access and Amazon Prime Video. 

When is the next episode of Star Trek: Picard?

Star Trek: Picard releases every Thursday on CBS All Access in the US, and every Friday on Amazon Prime Video internationally. CBS All Access released Star Trek: Picard episodes 1, 2 and 3 at midnight PT, so we expect Star Trek: Picard episode 5 to be released on February 20 at midnight PT / 3AM ET

In international territories where Star Trek: Picard broadcast rights are owned by Amazon Prime Video, Star Trek: Picard is released the day after. So expect to see episode 5 on February 21. That said, Twitter users reported seeing the first episode drop at 11PM UK time on the Thursday, so it's possible you'll see each episode a little earlier.

Star Trek: Picard season 2 is coming, too
