In February 2019, it was announced that Nickelodeon had entered into talks to air the new series Star Trek: Prodigy, and that Trollhunters writers and executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman had boarded the project. [2] On 23 July 2020, it was revealed that the show would indeed air on Nickelodeon in 2021 after its debut on streaming service Paramount+. [3] [4] The premiere episode did air on the channel on 17 December 2021, but on that occasion it was an one-time-only affair. [5] It was eventually announced that the first ten episodes (parts 1 and 2) were belatedly to be aired on its regular and usual repetitive basis by the channel in the home market one year later, starting on 8 July 2022. [6]

The show however, did premiere on some foreign Nickelodeon subsidiaries where Paramount+ had not (yet) been available. One such market concerned the Netherlands and Flanders, where the in the Dutch language dubbed version of the show debuted on 18 April 2022 for an one-time run on the local Nickelodeon Benelux channel (launched on 23 February 2002), albeit the first ten episodes (parts 1 and 2) only. [7] Repetitive regular airing of the entire first season started on 31 October 2022 in support of the local Paramount+ encompassing streaming service SkyShowtime which had been launched in the country six days earlier, and where Prodigy was included in its startup content catalog.
