The Among Us Animated TV Series Has Announced Its First Cast Members

What a line-up!

After it was revealed mid-last year, the Among Us animated TV series has been pretty quiet, save for a tease here and there, but now we’ve finally gotten word on at least some of the cast that will be gracing the show with their voices.

In a post on its official website, Among Us developer Innersloth revealed the first four cast members for the show, and it’s a pretty fantastic line-up of great names. Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us) will be “Purple” while Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings) will be playing “Green,” Randall Park (WandaVision) will star as “Red” and Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) will voice “Orange.”

Along with the names of the celebrities who’ll be voicing them, each of the four characters has also had a short description released that sets up their roles in the show:

Red – Captain of The Skeld (Randall Park)

  • People-pleaser, blowhard
  • Task: leadership, confidence
  • Fun Fact: failed upwards

Purple – Chief of Security (Ashley Johnson)

  • Safety, suspicion, sarcasm
  • Task: wet blanket
  • Fun Fact: trust issues

Orange – HR (Yvette Nicole Brown)

  • Spineless corporate shill
  • Task: eliminate redundancy, redundantly
  • Fun Fact: fires you over email

Green – Unpaid Intern (Elijah Wood)

  • Happy to be there
  • Task: whatever they’re told
  • Fun Fact: gets paid in pizza

There’s very little other information on the overall premise of the Among Us animated series, aside from the knowledge that it’ll be based on the overall premise of the game – alien imposters attempting to sabotage a space-faring crew and murder the crew mates.

We do know that Owen Dennis, notable for having created Cartoon Network and HBO’s Infinite Train as well as serving as a writer on Regular Show, tapped to be the show’s creator and executive producer, and that it’ll be animated by the folks at Titmouse (Big Mouth, Star Trek: The Lower Decks).
