The Jurassic World series is currently one of the most popular movie franchises with the next installment Jurassic World: Dominion set to be released this year. Thanks to the rise of streaming services, a lot of franchises have now also ventured into television to give new life and tell more in-universe stories. There are some fans who are wondering if Jurassic World will get to have its own streaming series. Now, we have the answer.

In an interview with Slash Film, Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall was asked if there have been discussions of a potential live-action series based on the franchise. He responded, "No, I'm really just focused on the movies. So I haven't really thought about that. There's been no discussion of that. As I say, we have the animated series. I think that's plenty for now." He is referring to the ongoing Netflix CGI-animated series Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous which is set during and after the events of the first Jurassic World film.

Given the rise and trend of streaming series nowadays and a lot of franchises like the MCU and Star Wars are producing shows based around it, it seems to be inevitable for Jurassic World to have their own live-action series set within the universe especially since Universal Pictures and the streaming service Peacock are under the same corporate umbrella (NBCUniversal).

However, based on Marshall's response, it looks like we won't be getting any live-action Jurassic World series anytime soon and we can only stick with the Netflix animated series for now if we want some Jurassic World fix on television. Of course, there is a chance that they might start developing a live-action series soon if Dominion becomes a huge success and a lot of fans are clamoring for a TV series although the main hurdle for it to happen is the visual effects of the dinosaurs since it would require a large budget. Let's just wait and see if they will eventually develop a project in the future.
