The second and presumably final season of the animated “Star Trek: Prodigy” is all ready to engage its warp drive.
The series was abruptly cancelled and the first season was removed from the Paramount+ service in June, even as the second season was still in production.
At the time it was indicated Paramount intended to finish the remaining unaired season and shop it and the first season around. By October, Netflix acquired the series with the first set to come back to streaming on Christmas Day.
The second will arrive sometime in 2024, and this week creators Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman have confirmed via X that work on the second season is now complete with the mix for the final episode finished the other day. They say:
“Just mixed our final episode of #StarTrekProdigy S2. Five incredible years of our lives have gone into Prodigy, and we could not be more proud of the work from our amazing team. May this series inspire and welcome all into the Star Trek Universe. S1 on #Netflix this Christmas!”
“Star Trek: Prodigy” follows the young crew of the U.S.S. Protostar, a Federation starship with an experimental propulsion system, which the characters discovered buried within the prison colony of Tars Lamora – deep in the Delta Quadrant.
The voice cast includes Brett Gray (Dal R’El), Ella Purnell (Gwyn), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), Angus Imrie (Zero), Jason Mantzoukas (Jankom Pog), Dee Bradley Baker (Murf), John Noble (The Diviner), Jimmi Simpson (Drednok) and Kate Mulgrew as Kathryn Janeway.
The Hagemans previously worked with Netflix on the series “Trollhunters”.
