On Wednesday, ViacomCBS teased the new shows during a Paramount Plus Investor Day detailing the next service. A derived series called Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will follow the continuing adventures of Captain Pike and Mr. Spock, characters that appeared in both the original 1960s show and Discovery (with different actors). Star Trek: Prodigy, an animated series from Trek aimed at younger audiences, will hit Paramount Plus before heading to Nickelodeon.
