Coming off the back of a hugely successful panel at Comic-Con@Home, stock is high in CBS’s Star Trek franchise on the small screen.

During that panel it was announced that Nickelodeon’s long-rumoured CGI animated series would be called Star Trek: Prodigy. Alongside key art we got a short description of the young-adult series:

Star Trek: Prodigy follows a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.

Now Deadline is reporting that Prodigy has found its showrunner in Ben Hibon. Hibon is well know to fans of Harry Potter after masterminding an animated sequence in which Hermione Granger recounts the legend of the titular Deathly Hallows in the series’ penultimate movie.

“Ben’s contributions to the world of animation are immeasurable, and we are so lucky to have his vision and creative genius on Star Trek: Prodigy,” added Ramsey Naito, EVP Animation Production and Development, Nickelodeon Group. “As an incredible storyteller and a world builder with a distinct vision, his original approach paired with this beloved property will bring the characters to life in a whole new way.”

Star Trek: Prodigy is set to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2021.
