Paramount is once again juggling its Star Trek projects. At the start of 2024, all ten of the Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation movies vacated the streamer because of a licensing deal with Max. With that deal ending, the movies will be returning to Paramount+ beginning July 1st, according to Trekmovie.

It's a rather convenient time for the movies to return on the exact same date as Star Trek: Prodigy launches its second season on Netflix. The animated series was unceremoniously cancelled by Paramount+ in April of last year after the streaming channel called itself "the home of Star Trek." That home is still missing a room without Prodigy.

With all ten of the classic movies back on Paramount+ and the three Kelvin Timelines movies available as well, Paramount+ will be the sole host of the least for now. There's no way the streamer won't be looking to build on its revenue by seeking licensing deals with other streamers, especially considering Paramount+ hasn't made a profit since its inception.

Another movie, Section 31, will be exclusive to Paramount+ is complete, but a release date has not been scheduled yet. And a Star Trek: Origins movie is reportedly in production while Star Trek 4 continues to struggle to find its footing. The three could potentially bring in substantial income to the streamer, which it desperately needs. Recently, Paramount+ CEO George Cheeks announced at an employee town hall, via MSN Money, that the streamer had hired investment bankers to sell off some assets in an attempt to reduce debt.

In addition, the streaming channel is increasing its prices for new subscribers both ad-free and ad-supported content beginning in August. Paramount+ with Showtime will cost an additional $1.00 ($12.99) while Paramount Essentials (ad-supported) will increase by two dollars ($7.99). The price increases will go into effect for current subscribers beginning September 20th, according to a report by Variety.

Netflix will release all 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy on July 1st. dark. Next. Netflix will release all 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy on July 1st
