Star Trek: Prodigy is the little engine that could, and an Emmy nomination is its newest achievement.
Star Trek: Prodigy was cancelled in April 2023, and its entire first season was removed from Paramount+, giving viewers no way to watch the series other than through Blu-ray and DVD. When those options became available, sales went through the roof, just one more piece of evidence that fans were serious about the series.
Add to that the many ways fans got involved in saving Prodigy from cancellation oblivion, including an aerial campaign that helped lead the series to a new home at Netflix, and one can understand that this isn’t just any type of show. Prodigy is more than just a kids animated television series. It’s seriously good drama and comedy. So it deserves all the kudos it gets, like its most recent Emmy nomination for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing For An Animated Program.
Star Trek: Prodigy executive producer, Aaron Waltke, shared the news with a huge thanks to the amazing crew!
The Prodigy team deserves every bit of praise for the hard work they put into making this series as great as it is.
And this is just potentially one Emmy nomination Prodigy could receive as nominations for Individual Achievement in Animation won’t be revealed until later on this month.
Last season, Alessandro Taini, the production designer for Prodigy, earned an Emmy in the Individual Achievement in Animation category from the Children’s and Family Emmys. Out of more than 3,000 entries, according to Animation Magazine, Prodigy was one of seven winners.
So, if anything, yet another Emmy nomination provides more evidence that Prodigy belongs on our screens. With the high quality content and amazing visuals, this series could run for a long time. Hopefully, Netflix will give it that opportunity. Congratulations to the entire Prodigy team!
