Out of nowhere, Inner Sloth released the first image from the highly anticipated Among Us animated Series, offering fans a familiar glimpse of the show.
The first image, as seen in the post on the official Among Us X/Twitter account, shows the cafeteria from Among Us’ original map, the Skeld. Pizza and plates spread across the tables, along with some balloons and a blood-covered banner that visibly shows the words “We’re Dead.”

The Among Us animated series was first announced last June, and it was reported that the developer was involved in the project, with Regular Show writer and storyboard artist Owen Dennis spearheading the project. Titmouse, the studio behind animated series such as Big Mouth and Star Trek: Lower Decks, is tasked with animating the series.
While we have yet to learn much about the show’s premise, if it’s anything like the games, it will be a suspenseful series with social deception and comedy playing big roles in the story.
Among Us was first released in 2018 but blew up in popularity in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the unexpected rise in its favor, Inner Sloth canceled the sequel and focused on post-launch support for the original game. Following the sequel’s cancellation, Inner Sloth released new features, such as Hide ‘n Seek mode, and new maps, including the Airship. Among Us has also been ported into VR headsets, including the Meta Quest.
