It was announced today that Star Trek: Prodigy has been picked up by Netflix after it was cancelled by Paramount+ back in June. The CG-animated series had already been renewed for a second season but Paramount+ reversed its decision as part of write-downs on content in order to cut costs.

Executive producer Aaron Waltke took to Twitter this morning to share his excitement that the show has found a new home, stating that "the possibilities are endless now that the world can see all 40 episodes of Prodigy's first and second seasons in one place - which our passionate cast and crew have worked so tirelessly on - with the potential for more as we boldly go and seek out this new horizon."

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.

Season 1 will debut on Netflix later this year, with the second season slated to release in 2024.
