A lot of us, especially during Comic Con (even if it’s virtual), are always looking to find that new thing, or a glimpse into something that we already have, but is coming back. WELL during virtual Comic Con, it was announced that Nickelodeon would be moving forward with Star Trek: Prodigy, an original animated series!
