Star Trek: Prodigy is finally going international.
Star Trek: Prodigy completed the first half of its inaugural season back in February on Paramount Plus, but international viewers have yet to see the newest of the Star Trek series. For some viewers, the wait will be over when, according to TrekMovie, Nickelodeon will begin its international rollout in nine countries beginning in April.
The first countries which will get to see the series that stars Kate Mulgrew as a hologram version of Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager will be the UK, France, Spain, and Portugal. Nickelodeon’s UK website is ready with details about the series and various videos. As of yet, there hasn’t been an annoucement as to when US Nickelodeon viewers can expect to see the CGI-animated series.
Star Trek: Prodigy is set to head to other countries but hasn’t been scheduled yet.
The series, which sees a team of juvenile aliens aboard a commandeered ship they’re just learning about with the help of hologram Captain Janeway, will also debut in Singapore, Malaysia, and the Phillipines as well as Nigeria and South Africa. But those release dates have not yet been set.
The second half of the first season which will consist of ten additional episodes will debut later on this year on Paramount Plus with Kate Mulgrew portraying both the hologram and Admiral Janeway. The first half of the series ended as she and her crew, aboard the USS Dauntless, set out after the Protostar crew, believing they know something about her former colleague and friend, Commander Chakotay who had gone missing.
Co-creator and showrunner Kevin Hageman confirmed to Den of Geek in February that the admiral is on a mission, and this Janeway isn’t a mentor. Along with Kate Mulgrew, the second half of season one should include, but this hasn’t been confirmed, the return of Robert Beltran as Chakotay.
