Renewed: Star Trek: Prodigy
The first Star Trek property aimed primarily at a younger audience is flying high.
Animated series Star Trek: Prodigy has been renewed for a second season on Paramount+ after only just debuting.
Star Trek: Prodigy is the first Trek property to be aimed primarily at a younger audience.
The series follows a motley crew of aliens who join together to explore the galaxy in search of a better, brighter future. The six main characters plunge into the world of Star Trek unknowingly, having no understanding of the ship which they have gained control of (which once belonged to Starfleet).
Showrunner Alex Kurtman has previously noted, “If Prodigy is a success and works for everybody, then hopefully there will be lots of conversations about how to build it out from there, because it’s just going to make sense for the company.”
A mid-season finale is coming in mid November but it will resume in early January.
