The animated kids series Star Trek: Prodigy is making its weekly debut on Nickelodeon beginning Friday, July 8 at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT). The Nick debut begins with the one-hour two-part premiere “Lost & Found.” The rest of the 10 episodes, comprising the first half of the season, will continue to debut Fridays on Nickelodeon through August 5.
Following the linear debut of Star Trek: Prodigy, episodes will become available on Nick.com, the Nick App, and Nick On Demand, with additional encores airing on Nicktoons.
Here is the announcement trailer.
Claudia Spinelli, Nickelodeon Senior Vice President of Big Kids Animation released a statement about the debut on the cable network, saying:
Generations of fans around the globe love Star Trek, and we’re so excited to introduce our young audience to the franchise when Star Trek: Prodigy airs on Nickelodeon this Summer. The Nick DNA is woven into the heartwarming friendships, high-stakes action, and beautiful animation, making this series a perfect fit in our content library.
Originally debuting last fall on Paramount+, Star Trek: Prodigy follows a group of alien teens as “they discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.” They are joined by an Emergency Training Hologram, voiced by Star Trek: Voyager’s Kate Mulgrew, who helps guide them on their adventures.
In addition to Mulgrew, the voice cast includes Rylee Alazraqui as Rok-Tahk, a Brikar and an unusually bright eight-year-old girl; Brett Gray as Dal, a 17-year-old unknown species who fancies himself as a maverick; Angus Imrie as Zero, a Medusan: a noncorporeal, genderless, energy-based lifeform; Jason Mantzoukas as Jankom Pog, a 16-year-old Tellarite known to relish an argument; Ella Purnell as Gwyn, a 17-year-old Vau N’Akat who was raised on her father’s bleak mining planet; Dee Bradley Baker as Murf, an unknown but endearing, indestructible blob with curiously good timing and an insatiable appetite for ship parts.
Star Trek: Prodigy is also available to stream on Paramount+, with the next 10 episodes dropping on the service later this year.

So, we now know that the second part of Prodigy S1 will be coming to P+ in mid September.
The Nickelodeon broadcasts will be one long advertisement to get kids to lobby their parents to upscale to P+.
Sounds like their marketing strategy is lining up better than the international rollout.
I’m hoping we’re about to hear that Lower Decks S3 is ready to rollout in July.
Domestic marketing and synergy is definitely easier for Paramount to control, they have so many institutions in place to make it work. Internationally, they’re dealing with different partners in every country, different licensing deals and rules… It’s quite a job to build that up from scratch in most places.
There is new Star Trek for almost 3/4 of the year! I am SO pleased!
I can’t believe how much I miss this show lol. I really can’t wait for season one to finish! It’s been great so far and proves for all the ‘haters’ of NuTrek, I think Star Trek has been getting better and better with each new show.
When approx will the new episodes of this animated series?
