Paramount+ Readies Star Trek: Prodigy Return


The midseason return of Star Trek: Prodigy has been slated for October 27 on Paramount+ in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, South Korea and the U.K.

Billy Campbell will be joining the voice cast of season one, reprising his Star Trek: The Next Generation role as Thadiun Okona, a roguish space captain who is constantly outrunning trouble.

Campbell joins previously announced recurring voice cast members Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum) and Robert Beltran (Captain Chakotay).

In the remaining Star Trek: Prodigy season one episodes, the hopeful Protostar crew making their way toward Starfleet discover their ship harbors a weapon designed to tear the United Federation of Planets apart. To make matters more complicated, the real Vice Admiral Janeway is hunting for the Protostar, eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay.

Star Trek: Prodigy was developed by showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, Ninjago) and is from CBS’s Eye Animation Productions, Nickelodeon Animation and Roddenberry Entertainment. Ben Hibon directs.

Star Trek: Prodigy is set to return to Paramount+ in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France and to Nickelodeon international channels at a later date. In Canada, the series airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave.

“From early on in the writers’ room, we knew we wanted Captain Thadiun Okona to return and become a questionable guide to our impressionable crew,” Kevin and Dan Hageman said. “It was so much fun to not only explore where Okona’s outrageous life has taken him in his later years, but to also work with Billy Campbell who effortlessly fell back into the role of Okona like he had never left.”
