‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ to be Removed from Paramount+ Next Week

by admin

Attention, Star Trek enthusiasts who have yet to watch ‘Prodigy’: It is advised to catch up on the series before the upcoming week. In an announcement reported by The Hollywood Reporter (via io9), Paramount+ has decided to cancel several shows, including ‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’ and ‘The Game,’ along with ‘Star Trek: Prodigy.’ Following the footsteps of Disney and Warner Bros. Discovery, Paramount Global has chosen to remove ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ and the other canceled shows from Paramount+ in order to benefit from a tax writeoff. Fans have a limited time until next week to view the series before its future becomes uncertain.

A spokesperson from Paramount+ stated to The Hollywood Reporter, “As we approach the merger of Paramount+ and Showtime later this month in the US, we are refining our content lineup to provide subscribers with the ultimate streaming experience. This aligns with our content strategy since the platform’s launch and our overall business objectives, which involve making intelligent and efficient decisions based on audience data and insights. We are selectively removing certain programming as we aim to optimize Showtime’s extensive collection of premium original content.”

This cancellation follows Paramount+’s previous approval of a second season for ‘Star Trek: Prodigy.’ The show might find a new home, as CBS Studios, the producer of Prodigy, intends to finalize postproduction on both seasons and seek out a new streaming platform. Rest assured, this announcement will not impact other Star Trek series, as Paramount+ will continue to serve as the platform for ongoing entries such as ‘Strange New Worlds.’
