The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy wrapped up on December 29, 2022, with a couple of big developments. Things at the Academy seem to be settling down now that the group of new student conscripts has been broken up and some new alliances have been formed. Star Trek: Voyager’s Janeway is coming to Earth to meet with the Academy students and check in on the progress they’ve made, while Starfleet is sending a ship called the Aventine (that was mentioned a couple of times earlier in the season) to assist. That first season is now available to stream on Paramount+ in most countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. If you’re unfamiliar with Star Trek: Prodigy, the series looks at an adult Starfleet Academy where students are exploring the universe and its inhabitants on missions that span centuries – but they’re caught up in a changing time and place as well. The crew gets caught up in century-old battles and political intrigue, while many of the characters have cameos in Star Trek: Discovery. They’re stationed on Earth, but not confined to it, yet it’s clear that everything is tied to the planet and its orbit.

When will season 2 is coming?
There is a lot of speculation about when Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 will be released, but we do know that the second season will arrive sometime in 2023 or 2024. That’s because the first season only aired few months ago and then it was renewed for a second season by Paramount. It’s also because it takes a long time to make. The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy took about a year and a half to create, so if that’s any indication of how long the second season will take, then we might have to wait until late 2023 or early 2024 for new episodes. There was some initial uncertainty about whether the network would renew the series or not, but since they did renew it – and with Kate Mulgrew on board too – there’s hope that they could be working on new episodes already now.
That first season of #StarTrekProdigy was just a brilliant, beautiful ride. The perfect mix of action, moral exploration, humor, drama, joy & hope–everything we've come to expect and love about #StarTrek.
Can't wait to see what's in store for season 2 and beyond. ☺️❤️🖖 pic.twitter.com/s3REGtRCsh

What is the series about?
Star Trek: Prodigy is set in the 23rd century when a group of new students at Starfleet Academy experiences a series of sudden changes that lead them to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Their missions take years to complete, and they’re always in danger when they return. That makes them an ideal candidate for Starfleet Academy, where they’re essentially trained to be spies; so it’s a case of whether they can survive being human again. Star Trek: Prodigy is set on a space station named the Academy, which is situated in Earth’s orbit. Its residents come from every corner of the galaxy and represent every imaginable culture and species. They live together in close quarters so they can learn to work together, and they use state-of-the-art technology to explore their universe.
What fans are expecting from season 2?
Fans of Star Trek: Prodigy is expecting to see the crew continue to work together to try and find a way to save Earth from destruction, as well as many other interesting planet-focused storylines. Some are also looking forward to seeing characters from Star Trek: Discovery, like Culber (Wilson Cruz), who made an appearance in the pilot episode. There’s been a lot of discussion about whether there will be more cameos from more characters in the main Star Trek shows like Discovery, Voyager, The Next Generation, and Enterprise. Fans are also wondering how much longer the series can use the ‘Starfleet is abandoning Earth’ plot device before it becomes ridiculous or starts to become too repetitive.
Who can watch this series?
It’s not just for fans of Star Trek – it’s for anyone who wants to experience the classic sci-fi show in a new and exciting way. This isn’t a reboot or remake – it’s an original story that was written exclusively for Star Trek: Prodigy. It has some familiar faces, but they all have their own stories and distinct personalities, while we also see familiar characters and storylines in new contexts. Everyone can watch Star Trek: Prodigy, even if they haven’t watched any of the other shows or movies.
