Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television said they are collaborating on six cartoons that are scheduled to be ready for streaming in 2018.

Featuring the voice talents of Skylar Astin and Amanda Leighton, Trolls: The Beat Goes On! is set to premiere Jan. 19.


In the works are a third and final season of Guillermo del Toro's Trollhunters, a revival of the 1980s icon She-Ra and The Boss Baby: Back in Business, a spinoff series based on the characters in the 2017 blockbuster Boss Baby.

The slate also includes The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants. Dav Pilkey's children's books got the big-screen treatment earlier this year.

Joining Netflix's 2018 lineup, as well, is Harvey Street Kids.

"From its never-ending games of kickball to the infinite flavors of its ice-cream truck to the greatest climbing tree in the universe, every day on Harvey Street feels like a Saturday," a synopsis said. "And that's largely thanks to the Harvey Girls -- Audrey, Lotta, and Dot -- the block's self-appointed guardians and the world's bestest BFFs. They will do whatever it takes to keep Harvey Street the best block to never grow up on and transform every afternoon into a wild adventure."
