Last year Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Gates McFadden jumped into the world of podcasting with InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are? The first season wrapped up in late 2021 and TrekMovie can exclusively announce there will be another season. We also have details on some of the Star Trek guests she has lined up and an exclusive video from Gates herself about the news.
Today NacelleCast, The Nacelle Company’s podcasting division, announced the critically acclaimed hit podcast series Gates McFadden InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are? has been renewed for a second season. And the show will continue to feature frank conversations with McFadden and guests from the world of Star Trek. The second season includes interviews with William Shatner, Kate Mulgrew, Anson Mount, Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, John Billingsley, and others.
McFadden tells TrekMovie:
Just like the camping song I sang as a kid—Season Two is silver and gold—I’m making new friends, but honoring some longtime ones as well. Old friends from Voyager, Enterprise, and The Original Star Trek. And new friends from Discovery, Lower Decks, and Strange New Worlds.
Gates also sent along this video about the news:
Nacelle Company founder and CEO Brian Volk-Weiss had this to say about the podcast:
It was one of my career highlights to work with Gates on the first season of InvestiGates, and so it’s safe to say I’m ecstatic about working with her on a second season.
In season one, Gates McFadden took an in-depth dive into the close personal friendships with her Next Generation castmates Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Wil Wheaton, and friends from other Trek shows. The 15 episodes are more like intimate conversations between McFadden and her guest, each filled with stories of youth, family, and the cast’s intertwined experiences that can range from hilarious to the harrowing.
The entire first season of Gates McFadden InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are? is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts and wherever else you listen to your favorite shows.
