Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill’s animated horny-food movie ‘Sausage Party’ is getting its own TV show.

The r-rated comedy film debuted back in 2016, and followed talking hot dogs, buns, and other grocery items who came to life in the supermarket at night time. The film is filled with sexual inuendos, course language, oh, and a giant food orgy. 

The film hauled in $34 million on its opening weekend, and has a solid Rotten Tomatoes score of 82 percent. 

The new series, named Sausage Party: Foodtopia, is set to be an “eight-course television event” based on the film. A bunch of the original cast members will be returning for the series, including Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, and Edward Norton.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are set to executive produce the upcoming series, alongside Ari Shaffir and Kyle Hunter, who also wrote the 2016 film. 

Rogen and Goldberg said in a joint statement: 

"Film used to be the superior art form to television, and we humbly reached the pinnacle of what can be achieved with film in our remarkable opus, Sausage Party.

"But now that film is completely dead and TV is the forever-king of entertainment, we've decided to continue the epic adventures of our culinary crew in the soon-to-be-legendary televised masterpiece Sausage Party: Foodtopia.

"It’s got all the heart, double the puns, and triple the food-on-food sex. In other words, it’s exactly what the world needs right now."

Sausage Party: Foodtopia is set to drop on Prime Video in 2024, with production already underway.
