Star Trek Producers Express Gratitude to Fans for Rescuing Canceled Show and Provide Exciting Prodigy Season 2 Update

Star Trek’s executive producer, Alex Kurtzman, expressed his gratitude to fans for rescuing Star Trek: Prodigy during New York Comic Con. Additionally, executive producer Aaron J. Waltke provided an exciting update regarding the second season of Prodigy. On October 11, the creators and co-showrunners of Star Trek: Prodigy, Kevin and Dan Hageman, announced that the beloved, all-ages animated series had found a new streaming home on Netflix, four months after its initial cancellation and removal from Paramount+. Season 1 of Star Trek: Prodigy, consisting of 20 episodes, is set to become available on Netflix later in 2023, with 20 brand-new episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy’s second season slated for release on Netflix in 2024.

As reported by TrekMovie, Alex Kurtzman began the NYCC’s Star Trek Universe panel by expressing his gratitude to the fans for their role in reviving Star Trek: Prodigy. He acknowledged the fans’ passion and creativity, including their efforts in gathering 34,000 signatures for an online petition and arranging for an airplane to carry a #SaveStarTrekProdigy banner over Los Angeles, which notably included a pass over Netflix’s headquarters. Kurtzman’s quote is as follows:

Before we get started, I want to address the elephant in the room. Star Trek: Prodigy is back! And it’s all thanks to you. What you’ve done hasn’t been seen since the days of TOS. Star Trek is a legacy of two entities: Gene Roddenberry and the fans, that’s it. It’s because of your nearly 35,000 signatures on that petition, the plane flying over Netflix, and they heard you. So, from the bottom of my heart, on behalf of all of us who love Star Trek: Prodigy, Dan and Kevin Hageman, Kate Mulgrew, the entire cast, and crew, I just want to extend my deepest gratitude. Thank you so much for your incredible efforts.

On October 17, Aaron J. Waltke, the executive producer of Star Trek: Prodigy, shared an exciting update regarding the progress of the final batch of episodes for season 2 on Twitter. Below is his post:

“Star Trek: Prodigy season 1 concluded with five of the young and resourceful crew members of the USS Protostar attaining the rank of warrant officers under Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). These aspiring youngsters aim to serve alongside Janeway in the hopes of securing admission to Starfleet Academy. Admiral Janeway’s mission is nothing short of daunting: she intends to embark on a time-travel journey to an alternate 25th-century future timeline with the goal of rescuing the stranded Captain Chakotay (Robert Beltran) from the perilous world of Solum. In the meantime, Gwyndala (Ella Purnell) chose to part ways with her friends as she travels to the late 24th century on Solum, with the noble objective of preventing the tragic events that transpired during the Vau N’Akat’s homeworld’s First Contact with Starfleet.

During the STLV: 57 Year Mission convention in August, the executive producers of Star Trek: Prodigy presented the first 4 minutes of the season 2 premiere, which brought forth two significant surprises. The Doctor (Robert Picardo) from Star Trek: Voyager has joined the cast of the animated series as the new Starfleet mentor to the young protagonists. He accompanies the youngsters to Admiral Janeway’s new starship, the Lamarr Class USS Voyager-A. These developments are setting the stage for an exciting and expansive adventure in Star Trek: Prodigy season 2. This season promises to incorporate elements from various other Star Trek series, all made possible by the dedicated fans who played a crucial role in Prodigy’s migration to Netflix.
