Nickelodeon’s Star Trek animated series is a different animated show than the already announced Lower Decks for CBS All Access. In a recent interview with Deadline, Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman recently offered an update on Nickelodeon’s upcoming animated series.
“The Hageman brothers are doing [an animated] show for Nickelodeon, and that will be entirely different from Lower Decks,” Kurtzman said. “I won’t announce the name of the Nickelodeon show, but that’s a really different show. That’s a show that’s for kids, younger. Full CG animation. It’s going to be incredibly cinematic. We just started seeing [storyboards] this week. It looks like, wow. It’s on par with Love, Death & Robots in terms of beauty and lighting and cinema, so it’s a really different feel, and Nickelodeon has been wildly supportive and I think very excited to bring a new energy to TV, you know, in animation.”
With two animated series, and Star Trek: Picard coming in the Fall, the Star Trek franchise is definitely undergoing an interesting renaissance.
