Announced as part of ComicCon@Home the previously announced Nickelodeon, kid-orientated CG-animated Star Trek series will be called Star Trek: Prodigy.
First announced back in April 2019, the series from Trollhunters scribes Kevin and Dan Hageman and overseen by Ramsey Naito, Nick’s Animation Production and Development EVP will follow a group of rebellious teens who commandeer an old Starfleet ship and head off into the universe for adventure and more. The series is set to air in 2021.
This move to a younger audience comes as the Trekverse has recently seen the conclusion of the first season of the renewed Star Trek: Picard with the legendary TNG captain and Sir Patrick Stewart. Having started this latest expansion of Roddenberry’s creations back in 2017, the Sonequa Martin-Green-led Star Trek: Discovery is set to return for a third season on CBS All Access later this year. Additionally, as the animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks prepares to debut on August 6, the Trekverse has the Spock starring Star Trek: Strange New Worlds in the pipeline and another series featuring Michelle Yeoh’s Discovery character and the mysterious Section 31.
