DreamWorks Animation has released the first trailer for a new 10-episode, family-friendly animated horror series called Curses!, which is set to begin streaming on Apple TV+ just in time for Halloween on Friday, October 27.

In addition to this new "spooky adventure comedy," the streamer has announced a second season of Interrupting Chicken and a Halloween special of Sharpe Island as part of its increasing package of children's and family shows.

The teaser for Curses! introduces us to Alex Vanderhouven, who clearly has a lot on his mind and is keeping a big secret from his family. When his two kids, Pandora and Russ, and his wife Sky, grow suspicious and follow Alex into a mysterious hidden cavern, they discover that Alex has been turned to stone. The trio then set out to discover what happened and attempt to lift the titular curse.

Curses! features an impressive voice-cast, with Emmy Award nominee Gabrielle Nevaeh (Monster High) as Pandora, Andre Robinson (The Loud House) as Russ, Emmy Award nominee Lyric Lewis (Waffles + Mochi) as Sky, SAG award winner Reid Scott (Veep) as Alex, Rhys Darby (Our Flag Means Death) as Stanley, James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Larry, Emmy Award winner Rhea Perlman (Barbie) as Margie, Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad (A Raisin in the Sun) as Georgia Snitker, and iconic A Nightmare on Elm Street star Robert Englund as Cornelius.

The series was created and executive produced by Jim Cooper (DreamWorks Dragons) and Jeff Dixon (The Hurricane Heist), with John Krasinski (A Quiet Place Parts I & II) also serving as executive producer, and Allyson Seeger (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) as co-executive producer. Leo Riley (Guardians of the Galaxy, Tron: Uprising) is the supervising producer, with Chris Copeland (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) and Justin Copeland (Wonder Woman: Bloodlines) on board as creative consultants.

Check out the trailer below along with some key art and an official synopsis, and let us know if you plan on giving Cursed! a go this spooky season.

"Premiering just in time for Halloween on Friday, October 27, “CURSES!” is a brand new animated, spooky adventure comedy series for kids from DreamWorks Animation. When a generations-long family curse turns Alex Vanderhouven to stone, it’s up to his two kids, Pandora and Russ, and his wife Sky, to return artifacts stolen by their ancestors to their rightful homes to finally lift the curse for good."
