There's a new Croods series coming to Hulu and Peacock on September 23 called Croods Family Tree. The showrunners are Mark Banker and Todd Grimes.

"The new series features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran (Raya and the Last Dragon) as Dawn, Amy Landecker (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) as Ugga, Kiff VandenHeuvel (This Is Us) as Grug, Ally Dixon (The Interview) as Eep, AJ Locascio (Voltron Legendary Defender) as Thunk, Dee Bradley Baker (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) as Sandy, Artemis Pebdani (Big City Greens) as Gran, Darin Brooks (The Bold and the Beautiful) as Guy, Matthew Waterson (Tales of Arcadia) as Phil and Amy Rosoff (Scandal, Criminal Minds) as Hope."

It looks like the only returning voice actors are Kelly Marie Tran from the second movie and AJ Locascio from the first Croods series.

The new Croods series is CGI? Interesting, I would've thought they would keep the hand-drawn animation from Dawn of the Croods, especially considering that they turned the CGI down for that series because squash and stretch was "too expensive" for a television budget.

My guess is that they found a CGI studio to more closely match that of the movies. Maybe it's the animation studios from either All Hail King Julien or Madagascar A Little Wild, which do look closer in animation to the movies.

Here's an interview with Mark Banker and Todd Grimes about The Croods: Family Tree. One interesting detail is that Artemis Pebdami actually voiced Gran for a little bit during the New Age movie, hence the credit under "additional voices". In a way, she's technically reprising the role for this series.

It's possible. Season 1 was 10 episodes while season 2 was 8 episodes. Season 3 could also be 8 episodes, bringing it to a standard 26 episodes.
