  • The show will be available in 2020.

Fans of the Jurassic Park franchise will get the opportunity to travel back to Isla Nublar in a new animated show from Dreamworks Animation. You can watch the first short teaser above.

Debuting on Netflix in 2020, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will follow six teenagers on a once-in-a-lifetime camping trip on the far, less habitated end of Isla Nublar. But what should be a relaxing adventure among prehistoric monsters turns into a nightmare, when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island.

Apparently, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will take place in parallel with 2015's Jurassic World, following the escape of the Indominus Rex. When the island is evacuated, the six teenagers are left behind, forcing them to band together in order to survive.

Because the upcoming show is set in the same continuity as the main franchise, it'll be interesting to see how they overlap. Will we see some of the same dinosaurs and characters? Will the show explore new places to come in Jurassic World 3?

Based on the show's trailer and title, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is more about surviving in the elements, rather than watching the infrastructure of a dino-themed land come crumbling down. Which is fine by us—a good man versus nature tale usually makes for fun entertainment.

Adventurers can check in to Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous in 2020.
