When CBS first shared details on Star Trek: Prodigy last year, it said it would premiere on Nickelodeon. That’s no longer the case. The computer-animated series for kids will now instead debut on Paramount+ later this year. Only once it completes its initial 10-episode run will the series make its way to the specialty channel.
Big news #StarTrek fans. A first peek at our #Prodigy bridge crew. Thank you @benhibon and all the artists @NickAnimation for bringing this motley crew to life. pic.twitter.com/GB9Ojqz3ZH— Dan & Kevin Hageman (@brothershageman) February 24, 2021
The shift is part of a new strategy that will see Paramount+ become the current and future home of everything Star Trek related. Not only will you be able to watch Star Trek: Prodigy and all 726 episodes from the six classic series on the streaming platform, the new seasons of Discover and Picard will also call Paramount+ home in the US, as will Strange New Worlds when it comes out.
