Trekkies, Live Logs and Proper! Star Trek: Prodigy, which debuted on Paramount+ and Nickelodeon, has officially found a new home, having been picked up by the streamer Netflix. Well, Netflix, I commend you on the smart business decision, as you’ve saved yourself at least one customer (ME!) despite the ridiculous decision to raise subscription costs again. 

After a short break (yet still too long of a break) due to its cancellation by Paramount+ before its sophomore season, the franchise’s first series aimed at a younger audience, Star Trek: Prodigy, Netflix has scooped up both the previously aired first season of the series, removed from Paramount Pictures’ streaming service Paramount+ in June 2023, and agreed to air the show’s second season once the show’s team finishes production.

According to the official Netflix announcement on X, the first season will hit the streaming platform in 2023, with the second batch due out sometime in 2024. The renewal news comes as a welcome surprise to Star Trek: Prodigy fans, who launched a GoFundMe campaign in August that resulted in a plane flying over the offices of several streamers, including Netflix.

“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 on X. “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.”

The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy‘s main voice cast includes Kate Mulgrew as both Hologram Kathryn Janeway and Vice Admiral Janeway; Brett Gray as the most snubbed captain in franchise history, Captain Dal R’El; Ella Purnell as badass linguist Gwyndala; Carlos Alazraqui’s daughter Rylee Alazraqui, a top-notch voice actor in her own right, as the young scientist and animal lover Rok-Tahk; Dee Bradley Baker as Mellanoid slime worm Murf; Angus Imrie as Zero, who uses they/them pronouns; Jason Mantzoukas as Jankom Pog, a short Tellarite; trans advocate John Noble as Gwyn’s bad-dad The Diviner; and Jimmi Simpson as Drednok.
