With almost 200 episode appearances on the acclaimed Star Trek: Voyager series and a cameo in the Star Trek: Nemesis movie, Captain Janeway is one of the most iconic figures in the Trek franchise. Now Janeway fans can rejoice! Her fated return to the final frontier has just been announced for the Star Trek: Prodigy series during a panel at New York City’s Virtual Comic Con!
Making the announcement of Captain Janeway's return was none other than Kate Mulgrew herself, who couldn't be more excited.
"I have invested every scintilla of my being in Captain Janeway, and I can't wait to endow her with nuance that I never did before in Star Trek: Prodigy."
Debuting in 2021, Star Trek: Prodigy is going to be the next animated Star Trek series. Geared towards a younger audience, the animation itself will be more CG-based and will air on Nickelodeon. This will be the third animated Star Trek series to air, following by the recent premiere of Star Trek: Lower Decks.
"How thrilling to be able to introduce to these young minds an idea that has elevated the world for decades. To be at the helm again is going to be deeply gratifying in a new way for me."
