The series is set within the timeline of the 2015 film “Jurassic World” and hails from DreamWorks Animation. It 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.

Produced by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, the first two “Jurassic World” films have grossed have grossed nearly $3 billion. The third installment debuts in theaters on June 11, 2021. Those films were preceded by the blockbusters “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” and “Jurassic Park III.”

“Camp Cretaceous” is the latest in a long line of DreamWorks Animation projects to debut on Netflix. DreamWorks Animation and Netflix signed an expansive first look deal for animated series based on Universal Pictures properties, as well as original and acquired IP, following the acqusition of DreamWorks by NBCUniversal. Among the shows the studio has debuted on Netflix are “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” the “Tales of Arcadia” trilogy, and “The Boss Baby: Back in Business.” Upcoming projects include an animated “Fast & Furious” series.
