San Diego Comic-Con is going virtual again this year with Comic-Con@Home, and Paramount+ will be there to highlight their animated series, which include two Star Trek shows.
Lower Decks and Prodigy headed to Comic-Con@Home
Paramount+ just announced two back-to-back virtual panels for Comic-Con@Home on Friday, July 23, which will be part of a larger “Peak Animation” programming block for the streamer to highlight their animated shows. The Star Trek Universe at Comic-Con@Home panels will feature exclusive conversations with cast and producers, moderated by Lower Decks actor (and husband of Strange New Worlds’ Rebecca Romijn) Jerry O’Connell. The event will kick off at 10 AM Pacific Time.
Official panel descriptions:
Paramount+, CBS Studios and Nickelodeon present the inaugural cast panel for the highly anticipated upcoming Star Trek animated kids’ series Star Trek: Prodigy with voice cast Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Angus Imrie, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker, and Jason Mantzoukas alongside executive producers Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman and director/co-executive producer Ben Hibon.
Lower Decks Panel
Join Star Trek: Lower Decks voice cast members Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, and Eugene Cordero alongside creator Mike McMahan for an exclusive conversation and an extended look at the second season. Season two is bigger, funnier and Star Trekkier than ever before. Fans can expect strange, new (and familiar) aliens to challenge the crews of the U.S.S. Cerritos and the U.S.S. Titan. For Mariner, Tendi, Rutherford, and Boimler, the animated adventure is just beginning.
Following those, Paramount+ will feature panels for their upcoming adult animated comedy Harper House, and Stephen Colbert Presents Tooning Out the News. As they are focusing on using Comic-Con@Home to promote their “Peak Animation” offerings, there’s nothing planned for other Paramount+ shows, like the three live-action Star Trek series. However, it’s always possible they could announce or release something for those shows during the Star Trek Universe portion of their Comic-Con@Home event.
The Comic-Con@Home panels will be available to view for free on Comic-Con’s YouTube page at youtube.com/user/ComicCon.
