The animated kids series Star Trek: Prodigy debuted in October with the fourth episode coming on Thursday. Today Paramount+ announced some details on how the rest of season one will roll out, along with confirmation for the next season.
Prodigy has only just begun…
Today Paramount+ announced that Star Trek: Prodigy has been picked up for a second season. According to Paramount+, the October 28 Prodigy debut had the top-performing premiere day out of any original animated kids series on the service.
Paramount+ also clarified that the first season of the show will comprise a total of 20 episodes. Previously it was assumed that Prodigy had been picked up for two 10-episode seasons. So today’s announcement for a second season means Paramount+ has ordered more episodes beyond the first twenty.
There is also an update on how the first season will be split up. After episode five streams on November 18, 2021 (the day of Star Trek: Discovery’s season four debut), Prodigy will take a short break. It will return on January 6th, 2022 with new episodes streaming each week until the first half of season one wraps up on February 3, 2022 (just before Picard season 2 debuts). The 10-episode-long second half of season one will be available on Paramount+ at a later date in 2022, to be announced.
