New Animated Star Trek TV Show, Prodigy, Coming To Nickelodeon
Star Trek: Prodigy is a new animated series coming to Nickelodeon. it was revealed at Comic-Con@Home.
To kick off the Star Trek universe Comic-Con@Home panel, it was announced that a new animated series is in the works and will air on Nickelodeon. This project is different from the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks, which streams on CBS All Access.
Star Trek: Prodigy "follows a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation," a description reads. It essentially sounds like a bunch of kids that find a spaceship and create their own Starfleet crew, which seems entertaining.
The series is being developed by Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters and Ninjago) and is expected to air on Nickelodeon in 2021. There's no casting information yet, but it joins the ever-growing Star Trek universe that also includes Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and the previously announced Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
This is simply the first of many announcements that will surely come throughout Comic-Con@Home weekend. To properly plan out your weekend, check out our breakdown of the biggest and best panels you'll want to watch.
