Star Trek: Prodigy

‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Warps To Netflix on December 25

Star Trek: Prodigy got dropped earlier this year by Paramount+. Now the show has a new home on Netflix. The first season of this animated show will be arriving on the streaming service for Christmas on December 25, 2023. This comes ahead of the second season debuting on Netflix in 2024. The arrival of Star Trek: Prodigy on Netflix marks a change in strategy for Paramount+, which previously had aimed to become the hub for all Star Trek series and movies. However, as focus for streaming services pivot from gaining subscribers to instead becoming profitability, Star Trek: Prodigy was cancelled by Paramount+ and then was forced to find a new home.

The move to Netflix was announced on StarTrek.com in November. This led to a collective (not THAT collective) sigh of relief by fans of Star Trek: Fans and also the the people who bring the show to life. “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,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman and co-showrunners Dan and Kevin Hageman. “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.”

“I’ve always held that the Star Trek fan base is among the strongest and most intelligent in the world. They have shown their collective passion, and we’re happy to be able to celebrate Prodigy once again,” said Kate Mulgrew, voice of Admiral Janeway.

In a recent interview with Collider, Dan and Kevin Hageman also shared a bit more about the second season of Star Trek: Prodigy. Dan Hageman shared, “In season 1 the kids steal a ship, in season 2 they earn a ship. They’re in a much bigger world now that they’re in Starfleet.” He continued sharing that season 2 might not be the end for this series. “There is no definitive end. Are we making season three? No, but can we make season three? Yes. I think a lot of this has to do with what type of appetite is there for Prodigy.” In fact, the duo aren’t just ready for season 3, but up to seven seasons. “There’s threads of what’s next. If we’re lucky enough to go to Season 3, I’m really excited about where the show can go. We wrote this thing to go seven seasons at least.”

Just how far Star Trek: Prodigy voyages into the future is unknown. It will ultimately come down to how many people connect with the show on its new home at Netflix. If enough people do, the sky is the limit as to where this series could go and seven full seasons really would be a Christmas gift for Star Trek fans.
