UPDATED: Check out The Most Anticipated Animated Shows of 2021!

If you liked cartoons, 2020 was going to be your year. The upcoming animated series of 2020 offered brand new stories to the return of long-gone favorite characters and everything in between. From streaming to network, which of the anticipated cartoons and animated series were you most excited to see?

Several upcoming animated series were building on favorite franchises. Star Trek: Lower Decks was an adult animated series that doesn't just expand on the existing Star Trek stories but tells the tales of the support crew of a lesser-known ship. He-Man (Masters Of The Universe: Revelation) and the Transformers (Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy) are also returning to the small screen with new series.  Upcoming cartoons in 2020 aren't just for adults, there are also fun family series, The Owl House, Monsters At Work, Looney Tunes Cartoons, and Tig N' Seek. If you just couldn't get enough animated sitcoms, upcoming shows like Duncanville and Close Enough were ready to fill your 2020 watchlist. From sci-fi cartoons to animated horror, CGI and traditional animation styles, there were upcoming comedy TV shows for every taste.

For more of the top upcoming animated TV series that dropped throughout 2020, check out the list below and vote up the shows you couldn't wait to see.
