Netflix announced this morning that DreamWorks Animation is working on Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, a new family animated series that takes place within the Jurassic World franchise.

"Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar," according to Netflix. "But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive."

Scott Kreamer of Pinky Malinky and Lane Lueras of Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny will serve as showrunners and executive producers. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow will also be executive producers for the show.

The newly announced series is one of many DreamWorks Animation has produced for Netflix, as part of a five-year deal between the two companies. The animation studio has already produced 18 shows for the streaming service, including Guillermo del Toro's Tales of Arcadia trilogy, Spirit Riding Free, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Other projects, slated for release in 2019, include Archibald's Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and an animated series on Fast & Furious.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will launch on Netflix in 2020.
