Keep those running shoes laced tightly and hold onto your butts because Netflix has renewed its Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous animated series for another season. Universal announced its plans to allow for more dinosaurs to run amok on the streaming network with a Season 2 trailer tease for the events to come. For the teaser, a group of children trapped on the island of Isla Nublar band together to form a defensive circle while hoping to survive an oncoming dinosaur attack. It’s some pretty nail-biting stuff, though I assume that each member of the party will make it out of the encounter just fine. With any luck, one of them will know gymnastics and can protect the group with a flashy display on some makeshift uneven bars. Do you see what I did there? You’re welcome.
If you’re in the mood for more dino-related madness this afternoon, be sure to check out the Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous virtual panel happening at New York City Comic-Con later today.

The events of season 2 will likely take place in between the first and second Jurassic World films, though DreamWorks Animation has not confirmed as much at this time. It’s also worth noting that the showrunners have confirmed that the events of Camp Cretaceous are to be considered canon in the Jurassic World franchise. In other words, if you study the material close enough, things that take place as part of Camp Cretaceous could change the way you view the original films overall.
Here’s the official synopsis for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 1:
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous 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. But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive. Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as a consulting producer.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 2 is looking to stomp onto Netflix sometime in 2021. Until then, why not check out the first season and find out what you’ve missed so far?
