Here is Cartoon Brew’s list of upcoming animated series that are expected to premiere in 2021 on U.S. broadcast, cable, and streaming services.

The list only includes new shows that have been publicly announced, and which have received a greenlight for production, not projects that have been announced for development or have been given script/animatic commitments.

We’ll update this list regularly as new series are announced, and we’ll be adding premiere dates for the shows as they become available. If you want to make additions or note an omission, contact us HERE. For easy access, this list will be added to our Charts/Data section of the navigation bar.
