Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 trailer lands

The orphaned Star Trek animation Prodigy prepares for Season 2 at its new home, Netflix. 

The behind-the-scenes tales of most of our favourite televisions series are often colourful.

When the definitive book on Star Trek‘s third coming finally appears, you can bet there will be a chapter on Star Trek: Prodigy.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2

Aimed at the children’s market, the show was made primarily for Paramount+ and aired on other networks worldwide. However, the streamer pulled the plug on the series last June, with its second season still in the works.

Luckily, Netflix stepped in and scooped up both the first season and the rights to stream the second.

As well as launching a new cast of characters, Prodigy has picked up on the threads of the 90s/00s series Star Trek: Voyager, with Kate Mulgrew reprising her role as Kathryn Janeway. She’s also been joined by a few familiar faces along the way.

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

Alongside Kate Mulgrew, the Star Trek: Prodigy voice cast includes 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).

Season 2’s recurring cast includes Jason Alexander (Dr. Noum), Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia) and Michaela Dietz (Maj’el).

Plus, returning Star Trek legends Robert Beltran (Captain Chakotay), Robert Picardo (The Doctor) and Ronny Cox (Admiral Jellico).

The series comes from Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, Ninjago), along with Alex Kurtzman and his team at Secret Hideout.

Co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman said:

“We deeply appreciate our fans who have stood by us and our passionate crew who made this all possible. The work speaks for itself, but it’s the heart that will endure.”

While that sounds pretty final, and of course we’re not privy to the terms of the Netflix deal, the pair did previously hold out hope for a third season.

Regardless, Netflix drops all 20 episodes of Season 2 on Monday, July 1 2024.
