Star-Studded Cast for ‘Among Us’ Animated Series: Randall Park, Yvette Nicole Brown, Elijah Wood, Johnson Join Galactic Adventure

CBS Studios is stirring the pot of anticipation with the announcement of the first voice cast members for the eagerly awaited “Among Us” animated series. Set to bring the beloved mobile game to life, the series boasts a stellar lineup, including Randall Park (“Always Be My Maybe,” “Fresh Off the Boat”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community,” “The Odd Couple”), Elijah Wood (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “Wilfred”), and Ashley Johnson (“The Last of Us,” “Blindspot”). These talented actors are lending their voices to an adaptation that promises to captivate fans and newcomers alike.

The collaboration between CBS Eye Animation Productions and Innersloth, the independent game studio behind “Among Us,” marks a significant leap from mobile screens to a broader narrative platform. Variety broke the news of the series’ development in June 2023, highlighting the exciting partnership and the creative minds steering the project.

Owen Dennis, known for his visionary work, will helm the series as creator and executive producer, bringing his distinctive storytelling to the fore under his overall deal with CBS Studios. The series draws its essence from the game’s thrilling premise: a crew haunted by an alien shapeshifter sowing chaos, sabotage, and death. It’s a race against time to unmask the “Impostor” before it’s too late.

The animation powerhouse Titmouse, celebrated for works like “Big Mouth” and “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” is set to animate the series. Joining Dennis in executive production are Innersloth’s Forest Willard, Marcus Bromander, Carl Neisser, and Titmouse’s Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina. This formidable team ensures a series that’s as visually striking as it is narratively compelling.

While the search for a network or streaming platform continues, the industry buzzes with speculation and excitement over where this series will find its home. Produced by CBS Eye Animation Productions in collaboration with Innersloth, the “Among Us” series is poised to be a significant addition to the animation landscape.

Character Insights:

  • Randall Park voices ‘Red,’ the Skeld’s Captain, a people-pleaser and a somewhat accidental leader.
  • Ashley Johnson brings ‘Purple,’ the Chief of Security, to life with a blend of safety, suspicion, and a dash of sarcasm.
  • Yvette Nicole Brown as ‘Orange,’ the HR officer, showcases the corporate world’s often spineless nature.

Fans of “Among Us” and animation aficionados alike have much to look forward to as this series develops.
