Picard star Patrick Stewart made the announcement earlier today, just two days before the season finale debuts on the streaming service.
Steward noted that until April 23rd U.S. viewers (the series airs on other platforms outside the U.S.) can use the code GIFT to get a free month on the streaming service.

The freebie comes as much of the United States has been ordered to remain indoors amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, and right before the finale for the revival series hits on Thursday. According to Variety, the free version is applicable to both versions of CBS All Access: the limited commercial and commercial-free versions.
The announcement is good news for those of you who might have been holding off on watching the series, or simply couldn’t afford it. Viewers will be able to see the entirety of CBS All Access’ content for a month, including its reboot of The Twilight Zone and more.
