The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib is an American computer-animated comedy streaming television series produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and developed by Brandon Sawyer. While Back in Business was a follow up to the 2017 film, the series serves as a follow-up to the 2021 film The Boss Baby: Family Business, loosely based on the books by Marla Frazee.

Summary[edit]

Taking place after the events of the second film, Theodore Templeton is forced to revert to his old Boss Baby self after being framed for embezzlement. Crashing with his older brother Tim and his two nieces, brainy big kid Tabitha and fellow Baby Corp employee Tina, he'll have to co-lead Tina's new Field Team fighting to increase Baby Love while keeping a new group of arch-nemeses, The Uncuddleables, from destroying Baby Corp itself.[1][2]

Production[edit]

Inspiration for the series happens when creator Brandon Sawyer watched a rough cut of The Boss Baby: Family Business by McGrath and McCullers.[3] The series was worked on during the production of the sequel.[4]

Animation for the series was provided by Techoloicolor Animation Productions and Toiion (who have done work for Spirit Riding Free).

Release[edit]

The series premiered on Netflix on May 19, 2022.[5][6]
