Sausage Party is getting the small screen treatment.
A spinoff of the 2016 animated film is headed to Amazon Prime Video. Seth Rogen, who also co-wrote the film, will return to voice his character, as well as cast members Kristin Wiig, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, and Edward Norton. Will Forte, Sam Richardson, Natasha Rothwell, and Yassir Lester will also lend ther voices to the series.
Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, who co-wrote the film's script with Rogen and Evan Goldberg, will serve as showrunners for the series.
"Film used to be the superior art form to television, and we humbly reached the pinnacle of what can be achieved with film in our remarkable opus, Sausage Party. But now that film is completely dead and TV is the forever-king of entertainment, we’ve decided to continue the epic adventures of our culinary crew in the soon-to-be-legendary televised masterpiece Sausage Party: Foodtopia," said Rogen and Goldberg. "It’s got all the heart, double the puns, and triple the food-on-food sex. In other words, it’s exactly what the world needs right now."
Sausage Party: Foodtopia will launch sometime in 2024.
