The Jurassic Park franchise will expand into an animated TV series on in 2020.

On Tuesday, the streaming service announced, alongside Steven Spielberg's company DreamWorks, that Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will be globally available next year, following a plot aimed for a younger audience.

The show will follow six children who have been selected for a summer camp on Isla Nublar - the site of the original Jurassic Park which was left in ruins in the 1993 classic, re-built and re-branded as Jurassic World in 2015's fourth instalment in the franchise, and destroyed in a volcanic eruption in 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

The series is set in 2015, at the same time as the movie Jurassic World - which saw the film series rebooted by writer/director Colin Trevorrow, after being stuck in development hell since 2001's Jurassic Park III.

The story sees the six children staying in another corner of Isla Nublar - Camp Cretaceous - at an elite summer school for youngsters, away from the main functioning theme park.

The camp is a lower-key experience, according to synopsis, in which the children are allowed to be left alone.

But when the genetic disaster that is the Indominus Rex runs riot through the main park [as is the case in the 2015 movie], Camp Cretaceous falls into trouble too, leaving the children in danger.
