The second season of Star Trek: Prodigy will now be showcased on Netflix. The animated children’s TV show was originally aired on Paramount+ but was cancelled by the studio, saying that the first season would be taken off the streaming service.
Netflix has now revealed that they will be bringing the first season of the show to its subscribers and will produce a second season that will premiere on the service in 2014. This will make Prodigy the first new Star Trek series to air off Paramount since Star Trek: Discovery.
The show follows “a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search of a better future. These six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered – a first in the history of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise – but over the course of their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.”
Prodigy is voice acted by the likes of Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, Angus Imrie and Jason Mantzoukas, among several others.
Creators Kevin and Dan Hageman said in a joint statement, “Thank you to our incredible ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ fans, who championed not just a show but a community that’s always been connected by the belief that we build a better future together.”
They added, “We set out to inspire you but you inspired us. The team is still hard at work on the second season, and we can’t wait to share it with the amazing fans around the world.”
