In a recent interview with Mission Log podcast (via TrekMovie.com), the series creators were joined by producer Ben Hibon to discuss the future of Star Trek: Prodigy. The creators shared their high hopes for future seasons of the show and even said that they are interested in making a movie about the characters in the show. Check out Kevin Hageman’s comments on the future of Star Trek: Prodigy below:

All our heads are always in the clouds here. As if we want to make an animated film. I would love for the show to continue for many, many seasons. And then, like what they did with The Next Generation – they had the show and then they started spinning off and doing the features. And then to be able to have the show, and then have a feature like that would be great. Not just an animated feature, but if you could do a live-action feature that would be absolutely amazing. So we have high ambitions.

Ramsey Naito, who’s the head of animation for all of Paramount and Nickelodeon, so whenever we sit down with her, she might bring up a season three and talk about possibilities, and we say, “Season three and season four and we have an idea for the movie.” And she goes, “Woah, woah, one thing at a time.” So we push as hard as we can. And everyone at the network and the studio has been so supportive, so wonderful. They love our show. Notes are so minimal. The confidence they have in the whole thing is so great. I think the future of our series, just it really rests on viewership. If the viewers are there, then the show goes on. But if the viewership isn’t there, if the numbers aren’t there. it will be difficult to convince the studio.

Star Trek Prodigy main cast

That Star Trek: Prodigy the season 1 finale was an emotional ride for the show’s core group of kids. Hologram Janeway stayed aboard the Protostar ship to ensure the nuclear explosion detonated. The explosion destroyed the living construct, but it also saved the solar system and Starfleet from destruction. However, Vice Admiral Janeway is still alive and she now needs a crew for her mission to rescue Captain Chakotay. The Protostar crew should be up for the challenge of their next mission, which will feature a brand new ship even bigger than the Protostar that Janeway teased at the end of Star Trek: Prodigy season 1.

There are plenty of unanswered questions left Star Trek: Prodigy season 2. Asencia’s whereabouts are currently unknown, although it has been confirmed that she is still alive. The new ship banter is also exciting, just as Gwyn’s new mission to Solum is a particularly personal journey. With the new mission on the horizon, Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 should feel very different from season 1. The kids will enter a new phase in their lives with increased responsibilities, which can lead to moments of turmoil and ultimately victory.

Admiral Janeway will be the leader of the group, which is an exciting prospect Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 and later. The show’s focus may remain on the young characters, but they will have guidance from celebrities Star Trek characters that would continue to create connections between the series and the classic Star Trek records. The season does not currently have a confirmed release date, but if Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 is similar to season 1, it may have a sporadic release schedule. The show’s creators have revealed that they are in the production phase of audio mixing with the first few episodes, signaling that the animated series could return to Paramount+ in late 2023.
