Prime Video is inviting viewers to a Sausage Party. The steamer has announced that it has ordered up the animated series Sausage Party: Foodtopia. The series is based on the 2016 animated feature film and is set for eight episodes. Returning cast from the original film includes Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, and Edward Norton. Joining the party this time are Will Forte, Sam Richardson, Natasha Rothwell, and Yassir Lester. The series is currently in production. No release date has been announced, and plot details are also being kept under wraps.
WELCOME TO THE SAUSAGE PARTY
“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. 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,” said Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
“The original Sausage Party was an incredibly hilarious, outrageous, one-of-a-kind entry into the world of animation,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios. “We are thrilled to collaborate again with Seth, Evan, and their team at Point Grey, as well as our partners at Annapurna Television and Sony Pictures Television, to offer a new look into this world that will be brought to life so vividly for our global Prime Video customers.”
“The original film was another irreverent comedy from the brilliant comedic minds of Seth and Evan. When Annapurna, Seth, and Evan approached us to wholly reboot the project as a TV series we were thrilled to be a part of the collaboration and equally excited to have Prime Video as our partner,” said Sony Co-President Jason Clodfelter. “We look forward to the fanfare around Sausage Party: Foodtopia which promises to be a hit.”
THE CREW BEHIND SAUSAGE PARTY

Vernon will also executive produce alongside Annapurna Television’s Megan Ellison and Patrick Chu, and Andrew Millstein.
