That show is "Picking up where the film left off, the Netflix original series is an all-new chapter in the the endlessly upbeat adventures of the Trolls as Poppy, Branch and all of Troll Village keep the party going in their fantastical forest home".

Netflix and DreamWorks have collaborated to release six new animated series for 2018, including a revival of "She-Ra", and shows for Dreamworks hit films "Trolls" and "The Boss Baby". Matthew Beans (Robot Chicken) will serve as executive producer, with Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Amanda Leighton (This Is Us, The Fosters) taking over for Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, respectively, as the voices of Branch and Poppy.

Another movie follow-up, The Boss Baby: Back in Business continues the story of Boss Baby and his big brother Tim as they try to navigate the "cutthroat corporate jungle gym of Baby Corp". The roster of originals features an all-new She-Ra, offering a modern take on the '80s classic. "The Beat Goes On" and more original animated series are headed to Netflix in 2018. An adaptation of Dav Pilkey's book series, the series directly follows this year's "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie" and will be produced by Peabody and Emmy award victor Peter Hastings. And that's largely thanks to the Harvey Girls, Audrey, Lotta, and Dot, the block's self-appointed guardians and the world's bestest BFFs. These are just the latest in a long line of the studio's movies that have received their own television shows like The Penguins of Madagascar, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, DreamWorks Dragons, and Dawn of the Croods.

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants is based on the epic books by Dav Pilkey DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants. Peter Hastings (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness) is producing.

The slate also includes The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants. The trio tries to come to terms with life in Arcadia while being hunted by interstellar bounty hunters as they try to fix their damaged spaceship and return to their planet to defend it from the bad guys.
