Just two weeks after Star Trek: Prodigy was removed from Paramount+, we have at least some good news for fans who want to catch up on season 1. Pre-orders for the second volume of the first season are showing up online, and we have an update on all the latest for Prodigy and its future.
Prodigy Season 1, Volume 2
The first “volume” of Prodigy season 1 with the first 10 episodes was released in January on Blu-ray and DVD (see TrekMovie.com review). Today, Amazon listed the release for volume 2 with episodes 11-20, which arrives on September 26. The listings currently do not have details on the releases beyond saying they will include 2 discs each. You can pre-order the DVD for $17.99 and the Blu-ray for $21.99.
At present, there is no official box art or details on special features. Even though the set is also available for pre-order at Target and has been confirmed by Digital Bits for release on September 26, Paramount has yet to make an official announcement, which would traditionally include those details and a first look at the packaging., so it’s possible some details for this release may not be final. TrekMovie will do an update when more information is available.
Fan support continues to grow, which becomes apparent when you follow the #SaveStarTrekProdigy hashtag. The Change.org petition has also gained momentum with over 27,000 signatures. Paramount has confirmed that work on the second season continues as they try to find a new home for the series. The team behind the show is still promoting the hashtag and has kept a positive attitude as we wait for news.

Buying Prodigy products, including the Blu-ray and DVD, is one of the ways producers have suggested fans show their support for the show. When news first broke about Paramount+ removing Prodigy Amazon quickly sold out of the first volume, but now it’s back in stock for both DVD and Blu-ray.
The Playmates Prodigy figures released earlier this year also sold out at Entertainment Earth, but the popular toy site is still accepting orders and promises to restock soon. However, the Janeway figure appears to have been canceled and there is no news on a Rok-Tahk figure either. All four figures from Playmates’ first wave (where Murf comes with Dal) are still available and in stock at Amazon.
Prodigy still flying with Delta
There is one place you can still watch Prodigy, at least for now. Selected content from Paramount+ is available on Delta Airlines flights, complimentary for SkyMiles members—and this still includes episodes of Prodigy.

Prodigy coming to STLV
It does not look like Star Trek: Prodigy will be part of the official Paramount+ lineup for San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off next week. However, Dan and Kevin Hageman, along with Protostar computer voice Bonnie Gordon, are all lined up to attend Creation’s 57-Year Mission convention (formerly Star Trek Las Vegas), which kicks off on August 3rd at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. Prodigy and Voyager star Kate Mulgrew will also be there.
We are pleased to welcome Star Trek: Prodigy creators/showrunners Kevin & Dan Hageman and USS Protostar’s ship computer voice Bonnie Gordon to the STLV: 57-Year Mission Convention in August!
