What Is Among Us All About?

Among Us is a video game that was released in 2018 and it takes place in a space-like setting where players are given colorful characters to play. Upon release, the game was a moderate success but saw a surge during the lockdowns induced by the pandemic which saw many YouTubers as well as Twitch users playing the game regularly.

In June 2023, it was announced that an animated series adapted from the game was in the works. CBS Studios is the creative force while Owen Dennis is the creator and executive producer. He had earlier created Infinity Train which is an animated show.

CBS Eye Animation Productions and Innersloth are jointly producing the series. The plot of the series will be about the crew whom the aliens with shapeshifting powers have replaced. The impostor must be identified or a total destruction is imminent.

The executive producers of the show include Shannon Prynoski, Marcus Bromander, Chris Prynoski, Forest Willard, Carl Neisser, Antonio Canobbio and Ben Kalina.

Do We Have A Trailer?

On June 8th, the official YouTube channel of Inner sloth released the title trailer of Among Us the animated series. The trailer had a duration of 53 seconds and it started with a spaceship stopping in front of a planet that transitions into a pizza. It is taken out of the oven by the colorful crew members. However, a shadowy figure is seen standing behind them.

The same figure appears when another crew is playing a video game. We then see everyone signing a waiver form when the figure appears again. It is followed by a series of scenes that showcase the figure everywhere on the ship. The crew is celebrating with a banner ‘We’re not dead’. That is when the figure appears and hides ‘not’ from the banner. It then ends with the actors of the show.

Who Is In The Cast?

Among Us the animated series will feature several interesting actors lending their voice to different characters. Randall Park will be Captain Red in the series while Ashley Johnson will voice Purple, the security chief on the ship.

Other actors who have lent their voices are Patton Oswalt (White the winner of the contest), Elijah Wood (Green, an intern who has not been paid), Phil LaMarr (Brown the cook), Wayne Knight (Lime), Yvette Nicole Brown (Orange the HR), Debra Wilson (Yellow, another cook). However, there is still a mystery around which actor has voiced the imposter in the series.
