Star Trek: Prodigy will no longer be coming back for a second season on Paramount+. The streaming service has walked back the renewal it gave the CG-animated series in late 2021. The show wrapped its 20-episode freshman run this past December and was set to return later this year.

The show will be removed completely from the platform shortly as part of write-downs on content in order to cut costs. All may not be lost though, as executive producer Aaron Waltke took to Twitter to state that Season 2 will still be completed on schedule, as Paramount plans to shop the show to other networks.

Star Trek: Prodigy follows a group of six young alien outcasts who must figure out how to work together while navigating towards the Alpha Quadrant in search of a better future. This motley crew know nothing about the ship they have commandeered, but their adventures will introduce them to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.
