First announced as being in development last year, the Among Us animated series hails from CBS Eye Animation Productions and Innersloth, the independent game studio behind Among Us.

Owen Dennis will serve as creator and executive producer on the project under his overall deal with CBS Studios. Per the official logline, the series is based on the premise of the game, namely, “Members of your crew have been replaced by an alien shapeshifter intent on causing confusion, sabotaging the ship, and killing everyone.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.”

Titmouse (Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesStar Trek: Lower DecksBig Mouth) will serve as the animation studio for the series. Along with Dennis, Forest Willard, Marcus Bromander, and Carl Neisser of Innersloth will also executive produce along with Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina of Titmouse.

Originally released in 2018, Among Us surged in popularity in 2020, when friends could come together during the COVID-19 quarantine to confuse and betray each other in a lighthearted environment.

No network or streamer is currently attached, but those conversations are said to be ongoing, with the series slated to be "coming soon". CBS Eye Animation Productions produces in association with Innersloth.
