Despite an early report by us, there won’t be a third batch of The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib episodes on Netflix. 

Back in the Crib is the second major series in The Boss Baby franchise to head to Netflix following The Boss Baby: Back in Business which ran between 2018 and 2021. We also saw a Christmas bonus episode drop in 2022 and an interactive special drop in September 2020.

Season 1 of the show debuted globally on May 19th, 2023, with a second batch of episodes arriving just recently on April 14th, 2023.

While the first season of The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib managed to enter the Netflix global top 10s for three weeks picking up 46.94 million hours watched globally, the second season notably was absent from any top 10s.

JP Karliak, Max Mittelman, Mary Faber, Krizia Bajos, Ariana Greenblatt, Alex Cazares, and Nicole Byer lend their voices to the series, with Brandon Sawyer serving as executive producer and Matt Engstrom serving as supervising producer.

On April 25th, we reported that the series had been renewed and would be getting a third batch of episodes later in 2023, although according to the showrunner and executive producer, this is not the case.

We got the news from an official Netflix document distributed to the press (we’re not allowed to link out to it, sadly), which states that “Seasons 1-2” of the show are on Netflix with “More Episodes Coming in 2023”.

Shortly after we posted the news, Brandon Sawyer Tweeted that it won’t return for additional episodes.

We reached out to Netflix but have yet to hear back.

As we’ve also been covering in recent months, DreamWorks Animation series won’t stay on Netflix forever. In just the last two months, we’ve seen the departure of Turbo Fast and The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. Based on our estimations, Veggie Tales In The City and The Adventures of Puss in Boots will follow later this year.

Other active DreamWorks TV shows on Netflix include Gabby’s Dollhouse, Go, Dog. Go! (also confirmed for season 4 in 2023), and Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight (returning for season 2 in 2023). They also have two new series set to debut this year: Not Quite Narwhal and Dew Drop Diaries.
