Star Trek: Prodigy Has A Brand New Trailer

The second season of the out-of-this-quadrant animated series finally arrives July 1 at its new home.

The second season of the animated adventure Star Trek: Prodigy is only days away, and today we have a brand new look at what’s to come. Prodigy is moving to Netflix (in most countries), and today CBS Studios unveiled a new trailer and key art for the season.

All 20 episodes of Season 2 will be streaming on Netflix starting July 1.

Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the first season yet! This is a great series that deserves the attention of Star Trek fans of all ages.

The 2-minute trailer shows off plenty of deep-space adventure, time travel, new alien life forms … and Murf at the weapons console?! Watch it here:

Prodigy follows the most unlikely crew of young cadets on a brand new mission. Following the explosive events of Season 1 Dal (Brett Gray), Gwyn (Ella Purnell), Rok-Tahk (Rylee Alazraqui), Zero (Angus Imrie), Jankom Pog (Jason Mantzoukas), and Murf (Dee Bradley Baker) join Admiral Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) to search for the lost Captain Chakotay (Robert Beltran) on board the U.S.S. Voyager-A.

“We deeply appreciate our fans who have stood by us and our passionate crew who made this all possible,” Kevin and Dan Hageman said. “The work speaks for itself, but it’s the heart that will endure.”

Developed by Emmy® Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (“Trollhunters” and “Ninjago”), along with Alex Kurtzman and his team at Secret Hideout, the CG-animated series STAR TREK: PRODIGY is the first “Star Trek” series aimed at younger audiences and follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search of a better future. In season two, these six young outcasts who make up the Prodigy crew are assigned a new mission aboard the USS Voyager-A to rescue Captain Chakotay (voiced by Robert Beltran) and bring peace to Gwyn’s (voiced by Ella Purnell) home world. However, when their plan goes astray, it creates a time paradox that jeopardizes both their future and past.

Also guest starring this season are John Noble (The Diviner), Jimmi Simpson (Drednok), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum), Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Ronny Cox (Admiral Jellico), and Michaela Dietz as the fabulously named “Maj’el” — who we hope is Voyager‘s A.I. computer interface, named for Majel Barrett Roddenberry, but is probably the new Vulcan character who can be spotted near the end of the trailer.

The show was originally renewed for a second season on its original home, as a joint venture between Paramount+ and Nickelodeon … but cancelled as a cost-cutting measure as the new season was wrapping up post-production. After a period of uncertainly Netflix stepped in to pick up the show — though it remains to be seen if strong enough viewership could bring back Prodigy for a third season.

Star Trek: Prodigy will stream on Netflix in the U.S. and select countries (excluding Canada, the Nordics, Central and Eastern Europe, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Russia, Belarus and Mainland China). In those regions check your local broadcaster to find out when Season 2 will arrive.
