Star Trek: Prodigy finds new home at Netflix after Paramount+ removal

‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ has found a new home on Netflix after being removed from Paramount+ earlier this year.

Both seasons of the show will make their way onto the platform, with season one appearing later in 2023.

Season two, which is currently in production, will debut in 2024.

Excluded from the deal between the two streaming giants are Canada, where ‘Prodigy’ is carried by and the CTV App, and in SkyShowtime’s European territories: the Nordics, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Central and Eastern Europe.

This follows Paramount+‘s decision in June to remove several originals, including ‘Prodigy’, from the platform in a cost-cutting content write-down.

The service also chose not to proceed with the previously commissioned second season of the animated show.

“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,” Kurtzman, Dan and Kevin Hageman said in a joint statement.

“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.”

‘Prodigy’ follows a crew of young aliens as they figure out how to work together while they navigate the vast galaxy, searching for a brighter future.

The aliens know nothing about the starship they’ve stolen, but over the course of the show they are introduced to Starfleet and what it represents.

The voice cast includes Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, Angus Imrie, Jason Mantzoukas, Dee Bradley Baker, John Noble, and Jimmi Simpson.

Daveed Diggs, Jameela Jamil, Jason Alexander, Robert Beltran, and Billy Campbell feature as recurring voices. ‘

‘Prodigy’ is developed by Emmy winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters), along with ‘Star Trek’ chief Alex Kurtzman and the team at Secret Hideout.
