One-Hour ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Pilot Will Air December 17 On Nickelodeon

ViacomCBS is taking advantage of the winter hiatus of Star Trek: Prodigy and allowing Nickelodeon to show the first two episodes (which air as one contiguous pilot episode titled “Lost and Found”) on Friday, December 17 at 8 PM in the United States.

Broadcast on Nick soon as a special event

The listings for this special showing have popped up on TV industry sites and a promo has been airing on Nickelodeon for the special showing. Take note, this is just to give a taste of the series to people who may not be Paramount+ subscribers; the new episodes are still going to be run on Paramount+ before their arrival on Nickelodeon later in 2022. Only “Lost and Found” is scheduled to be shown on cable.

Stream it now

The episode is already up on Nick’s website and their Nick Cartoon Universe YouTube channel for a limited time.

New episodes of Prodigy premiere on Thursdays on Paramount+ in the U.S. and on CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada, where it’s also available to stream on Crave. It is available on  Paramount+ in Latin American, the Nordic Countries, and Australia. Amazon Prime Video internationally on Fridays. It will debut in 2022 in parts of Europe with the launch of the Paramouint+ Sky partnership.

I really want this show back ASAP! I was just getting used to this crew, having our beloved Janeway again and bam, it’s gone! January can’t come soon enough.

Agreed. This mid-season break was a bad idea

Um… looks like this story needs an update. They’re showing “Starstruck” instead (ep. 3)
