The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib is an American animated comedy television series, produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and developed by Brandon Sawyer, which first premiered on May 19, 2022. While Back in Business was based on the 2017 film, this show is based on the 2021 film The Boss Baby: Family Business, loosely based on the picture books by Marla Frazee. The second and final season premiered on April 13, 2023.[1]

Summary[edit]

Taking place after the events of The Boss Baby: Family Business, Theodore Lindsay "Ted" Templeton is forced to revert to his old The Boss Baby self after being framed for embezzlement by Bradley, a member of his company. With his older brother Tim, and his two nieces, Tabitha and Baby Corp employee Tina, they co-lead Tina's new Field Team fighting to increase Baby Love. They work while keeping a new group of arch-nemeses, The Uncuddleables, from destroying Baby Corp itself.[2][3] In Season 2 of The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib, fired from Baby Corp, The Boss Baby and Tina combine their leadership skills to launch their own company. Now, in addition to the usual challenges of a startup company, UTP must also outsmart a new adversary named Crispin Biscuits, who was hired to ruin The Boss Baby and Tina's lives.[4]
