Star Trek: Prodigy removed from Paramount+ after one season

The animated Star Trek: Prodigy is among a host of titles at Paramount+ to be canceled, with its first season being pulled from the streaming service entirely.

A spokesperson confirmed this news to Variety, and said that they wanted to extend their thanks to the cast, crew, and producing partners for their passionate work and dedication.

Prodigy had a season two ordered back in 2021, and post-production work will still be completed.

Although the show had also aired on Nickelodeon, an individual told Variety that the show would not be returning there either.

Once season two has been completed, CBS Studios will look to shop the show to other outlets.

Prodigy aired its first season over two years, with 10 episodes starting in fall 2021 and a second ten late in 2022.

It starred Brett Gray Ella Purnell, Jason Mantzoukas, Angus Imrie, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker, Jimmi Simpson, John Noble, and Kate Mulgrew.

The synopsis for the show read “A motley crew of young aliens in the Delta Quadrant find an abandoned Starfleet ship, the U.S.S. Protostar; taking control of the ship, they must learn to work together as they make their way towards the Alpha Quadrant.”

The second 20-episode season of Prodigy was expected to debut on Paramount+ late in 2023, with ten episodes followed by a second set of ten episodes in late 2024.

The show’s creators and executive producers, Kevin and Dan Hageman, posted their reaction on Twitter, saying in a thread that while they’re disappointed about the news, they’re hopeful that Prodigy will find a new home.

Series co-head writer Aaron Waltke posted his reaction, emphasising that the show hadn’t been canceled, and will find a home.

Fans of the show are still able to purchase the first ten episodes of Prodigy on Blu-ray.
