Netflix will debut the first season of Star Trek: Prodigy this Christmas, the company said in an email to Cord Cutters News

The complete first season of the animated series will be available to stream starting December 25, news shared by executive producer Aaron J. Waltke on X, formerly Twitter. 

The move to Netflix marks the first Star Trek series to leave Paramount+ and find a new streaming home elsewhere. Paramount+ canceled Star Trek: Prodigy with a second season still in development and removed the series from the platform in June. Fan launched a successful campaign to save the series, which Netflix picked up in October.

Producers Keven and Dan Hageman, and producer Alex Kurtzman thanked fans profusely for saving the show. 

“Thank you to our incredible Star Trek: Prodigy fans, who championed not just a show but a community that’s always been connected by the belief that we build a better future together,” the Hageman’s posted on X at the time. “We set out to inspire you, but you inspired us. The team is still hard at work on the second season, and we can’t wait to share it with the amazing fans around the world.”

A second season of twenty episodes has already been created and is currently in post-production. Netflix expects it to be ready for release later next year but has confirmed a premiere date. 

Star Trek: Prodigy is an animated series geared towards kids featuring a crew of young aliens navigating the galaxy via a commandeered spaceship called Starfleet. 

The series stars Kate Mulgrew (Hologram Kathryn Janeway), 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). Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum), Robert Beltran (Captain Chakotay), and Billy Campbell (Thadiun Okona) appear as recurring characters.
