Netflix has announced a December 2023 release date for Star Trek: Prodigy season 1. The beloved all-audiences animated series was canceled by Paramount+ in June, but a dedicated fan campaign rallied to save Star Trek: Prodigy and secure the show a new streaming home. In October, Star Trek: Prodigy’s producers Kevin and Dan Hageman, along with Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman, announced that thanks to the fan support, Netflix will host Star Trek: Prodigy and stream all episodes of seasons 1 and 2.

On Twitter/X, Netflix Geeked announced Star Trek: Prodigy season 1 will premiere on December 25, 2023, with all 20 season 1 episodes dropping at the same time on Netflix. Check out the post, which was shared by Star Trek: Prodigy executive producer Aaron J. Waltke, below:

When Will Netflix Release Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 & What To Expect

Star Trek: Prodigy season 1 dropping on Netflix on Christmas Day will allow the streamer’s global audience to experience the beloved animated series. Netflix will hopefully grow Prodigy‘s fan base and introduce new eyes to the Star Trek franchise, just as the young alien crew of the USS Protostar learned the values of Starfleet from Hologram and Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). Netflix did not announce when the 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 will be released, and the latter batch of them are still in post-production. However, Netflix will release Prodigy season 2 in 2024, perhaps in the middle of the year.

4 minutes of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 were shown at STLV: 57-Year Mission and on StarTrek.com in August, which featured the arrival of The Doctor (Robert Picardo) from Star Trek: Voyager, and the debut of the new Lamarr Class starship, the USS Voyager-A. Admiral Janeway’s mission is to travel to an alternate 25th-century timeline to rescue the stranded Captain Chakotay (Robert Beltan), while Gwyndala (Ella Purnell) tries to prevent a tragic future First Contact with Starfleet on the Vau N’Akat homeworld of Solum. Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 promises to tie into the entire Star Trek franchise, but before those new adventures, fans can feast on the magnificent 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy season 1 starting Christmas Day.

Star Trek: Prodigy season 1 will be available to stream on Netflix starting December 25, 2023.
