The Save Star Trek: Prodigy campaign is going strong.
On August 24th, after a successful Gofundme campaign to fund the aerial advertisement, a banner with #Save Star Trek: Prodigy emblazoned on it flew high in the blue skies above Netflix’s studio before circling back over Hulu and Amazon.
There have been plenty of campaigns to save cancelled series, but this was a unique way to gain the attention of the executives at streaming channels, inspired by UK fan Michelle Stokes, who told Trekmovie that Prodigy deserves to be given the opportunity to continue to develop and grow.
"I’ve always been a big Voyager and Janeway fan, so when Prodigy came along, it gave me a chance to share my love for Trek with my daughter. Prodigy is such a beautiful show, both visually and in the purity of its storytelling. It deserves to be given the opportunity to continue to develop and grow."
Executive Producer Aaron Watke was present when the Star Trek: Prodigy took to the skies
Watke called the campaign a “huge boost of morale” and followed that up by saying he’d spoken with people at CBS Studios and Nickelodeon, and they were delighted to hear that this was happening.
"They are [aware of the efforts]. I just spoke with a lot of folks at Nickelodeon and CBS Studios and they were delighted to hear that this is happening. So the fans are being heard. This is making a difference. They are ensuring that history will never forget the name “Prodigy.”"
The Hollywood Reporter also shared the news which led to the creators of Prodigy, Kevin and Dan Hagemen tweeting that Prodigy fans are the greatest!
This is an all out team effort to save the animated series, and it looks like to could work. I would be very surprised if all of these efforts didn’t pay off as I’m sure other fans will.
