The first season of the animated series about a group of alien teens who find adventure when they discover an abandoned Starfleet ship (along with a hologram version of Captain Janeway) has not been available for streaming since it was removed by Paramount+ in June.
Netflix hasn’t released their own trailer but if you need a refresher here is the first trailer for the first half (episodes 1-10) of season 1 (via Paramount+ Australia on YouTube).
Season 2 coming in 2024
Work on the second season is close to being completed and Netflix previously has announced season 2 will debut in 2024, but we are still awaiting details on when and how the 20-episode season will be released. Netflix is also expected to confirm details on territories outside the USA closer to the release of season 1, which we now know will be on December 25.
A clip for season 2 was released over the summer revealing the return of Robert Picardo as The Doctor, now taking over duties of managing the former crew of the USS Protostar as they join Admiral Janeway on the USS Voyager-A and her mission to find Chakotay.
