Star Trek: Prodigy has been saved. After being removed from Paramount+, the animated series will find its new home at Netflix. Per TVLine, the first season will debut on Netflix later this year, while the never-before-seen second season will arrive sometime in 2024.
Star Trek: Prodigy was one of several shows to be cancelled and removed by Paramount+ in June, with reports noting that the decision was partially financially motivated. At the time, it was mentioned that the already-completed second season would be looking for a new home.
