In a surprise release, Paramount+ in North America has unveiled the first six episodes of “Ark: The Animated Series” based on the video game “Ark: Survival Evolved”.

The release was done with little to no fanfare and comes ahead of the overseas release of the series on the service which will take place on April 19th.

The story is dubbed a sweeping saga spanning eons of human history. When 21st century paleontologist Helena Walker (Madden) finds herself resurrected on a mysterious primeval island populated by prehistoric beasts, she must learn to survive with new allies from throughout time, while trying to uncover the true nature of their strange new world.

The voice cast includes Oscar winners Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”) and Russell Crowe (“The Loudest Voice”), Gerard Butler (“Plane”), David Tennant (“Doctor Who”), Oscar nominee Jeffrey Wright (“American Fiction”), Elliot Page (“The Umbrella Academy”), Madeleine Madden (“The Wheel of Time”), and Vin Diesel (“Fast & Furious”).

The series, announced back in 2020, has had no official premiere date news in years, nor a distributor seemingly set until Paramount+ did the surprise drop.

The seven-episode Part 2 of the season will be released at a later date.
