CBS Studios Drops 'Star Trek: Prodigy’ Season 2 Trailer

The first ‘Star Trek’ series for young Trekkies continues, following the motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy in search of a better future; all 20 episodes debut July 1 on Netflix.

CBS Studios has released the official trailer and key art for Season 2 of the original animated kids’ series, Star Trek: Prodigy. The popular series premieres Monday, July 1 with all 20 episodes on Netflix in select countries around the world. Season 1 episodes are now available on the streamer.

Developed by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, Ninjago), along with Alex Kurtzman and his team at Secret Hideout, the CG-animated series is the first Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences and follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy in search of a better future. These six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered – a first in the history of the Star Trek franchise – but over the course of their adventures together, they are introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.

In Season 2, these six young outcasts who make up the Prodigy crew are assigned a new mission aboard the USS Voyager-A to rescue Captain Chakotay (voiced by Robert Beltran) and bring peace to Gwyn’s (voiced by Ella Purnell) home world. However, when their plan goes astray, it creates a time paradox that jeopardizes both their future and past.

“We deeply appreciate our fans who have stood by us and our passionate crew who made this all possible,” commented Star Trek co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. “The work speaks for itself, but it’s the heart that will endure.”

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.
