Among Us animated series announced

CBS Studios announced an animated series based on the popular social deduction game Among Us; here’s everything we know about it, so far.

Developer Innersloth released Among Us in 2018, but the multiplayer social deduction game didn’t enter the stratosphere until 2020.

The game’s sudden rise to a cultural phenomenon saw it expand to other worlds via its Fall Guys crossover, VR adaptation, and, more recently, a Destiny 2 collaboration.

Now Among Us is looking to take over another medium, evidenced by the recent announcement of an animated TV show. Here’s what we know about the series, so far.

Who’s behind Among Us’ animated TV series?

Through its CBS Eye Animation Productions division, CBS Studios will produce the Among Us adaptation alongside series creator Innersloth. The studio behind Big Mouth and Star Trek: Lower Decks, Titmouse, will animate the project.

Infinity Train creator Owen Dennis is on board to executive produce, with Innersloth’s Marcus Bromander, Carl Neisser, and Forest Willard also attached in executive producer roles. Antonio Canobbio, Ben Kalina, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski from Titmouse will similarly serve as EPs on the upcoming series.

As for casting, so far we don’t have any names attached to the series so far.

Where will the Among Us series air?

At the time of writing, CBS Studios has not specified a release date for the animated series.

Unsurprisingly, details about a potential release window have also yet to surface. There’s no telling how long the series will be in the works before a release date is announced.

Additionally, no network or streaming services have been attached to the show as of yet, however, according to Variety, those talks are still ongoing.

The Among Us animated series’ plot details

According to Variety‘s reporting, CBS Studios has already shared a logline for its animated Among Us show.

The logline reads as follows: “Members of your crew have been replaced by an alien shapeshifter intent on causing confusion, sabotaging the ship, and killing everyone. Root out the ‘Impostor’ or fall victim to its murderous designs.”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the general story of the animated series will be similar to what you’d do in the video game.

Among Us animated series teasers

On February 1, 2024, Innersloth gave fans the very first teaser of what to expect from the series.

The teaser is of a frame from the series, of a pizza party seemingly gone awry. “Patient Crewmates are rewarded with a pizza party (totally safe) (not a trap),” the Twitter account jokingly captioned.

Further confirming that work on the show is still progressing, but still with no release window in sight.
