'Star Trek: Prodigy' Season Two to Beam Onto Netflix on July 1

Netflix will premiere Star Trek: Prodigy season two on Monday, July 1, 2024!

'Star Trek: Prodigy' season 2

The news was revealed by Netflix's "New & Hot" section on the streaming platform's app.

The news comes around 18 months since the season one finale debuted on Paramount+. The second 20-episode season of Prodigy was expected to debut on Paramount+ late in 2023, however, the series was canceled in between seasons whilst season two was still in production. Following a fan campaign to save the series, Netflix acquired the rights to Prodigy, and added season one on December 25 last year.

Everything We Know About Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2

Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 will have 20 brand new episodes. Last summer, Kevin and Dan Hageman revealed an extended first look at the second season's premiere episode, where the former crew of the U.S.S. Protostar and now warrant Starfleet officers in training are reunited for an internship under the command of Admiral Janeway. Escorting them to the admiral's new ship is Janeway's dear friend, The Doctor. According to executive producers and co-creators Dan and Kevin Hageman, "season 2 is like the second half of season 1", and "wraps up" the storyline.

How Will Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 Release On Netflix?

One big thing fans are naturally curious about is how Netflix will release episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2. Netflix is known for dropping every episode of a TV series on the same day, although the streamer has also experimented with split releases, such as debuting Stranger Things and The Crown season 6 in two parts. All 20 of Star Trek: Prodigy season 1's episodes landed on Netflix in one release.

Star Trek: Prodigy season two already announced The Doctor (Robert Picardo) from Star Trek: Voyager joins the show, and Admiral Kahryn Janeway's (Kate Mulgrew) new starship is the Lamarr Class USS Voyager-A.

It's also possible Netflix could split Star Trek: Prodigy season two's release and drop 10 episodes before following up with the latter 10 at a later date. This is what happened on Paramount+; the back 10 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy season one arrived a year later. However, this was due to needing to complete production on the latter Prodigy season one episodes. However, all of Star Trek Prodigy season two's episodes are thought to have been completed this time round.

Will There Be A Star Trek: Prodigy Season 3?

At the time of posting, a third season of Star Trek: Prodigy has yet to be announced. Although executive producers and co-creators Dan and Kevin Hageman have expressed their desire to make further seasons, they have warned fans that new seasons may take a while to produce.

Dan also revealed that the ending of season two "really opens the door to what season 3 potentially could be."

Star Trek: Prodigy is developed by Emmy® Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters and Ninjago), along with Alex Kurtzman and his team at Secret Hideout. Star Trek: Prodigy is from CBS Studios’ Eye Animation Productions, Nickelodeon Animation, Secret Hideout, and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers, alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. Ben Hibon directs, executive produces, and serves as the creative lead of the animated series. Aaron Waltke and Patrick Krebs also currently serve as co-executive producers. 

The Star Trek: Prodigy voice cast includes Kate Mulgrew (Hologram Kathryn Janeway), Brett Gray (Dal), Ella Purnell (Gwyn), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), Angus Imrie (Zero), Jason Mantzoukas (Jankom Pog), Dee Bradley Baker (Murf), John Noble (The Diviner), and Jimmi Simpson (Drednok). Also featured in the series are recurring voice cast members Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum), Robert Beltran (Captain Chakotay), and Billy Campbell (Thadiun Okona).

Star Trek: Prodigy received a 2023 TCA Award nomination for “Outstanding Achievement in Family Programming” along with a 2022 Children’s and Family Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Animated Series, and production designer, Alessandro Taini, won the award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.
