Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft is an upcoming American animated action adventure television series based on the Tomb Raider video game series by Crystal Dynamics, starring Hayley Atwell as the voice of Lara Croft. The series is set in the same continuity as the video game reboot trilogy that started in 2013, and takes place after the events of the 2018 game Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Tasha Huo serves as showrunner with Legendary Television and DJ2 Entertainment producing. The series is animated by Powerhouse Animation Studios in Austin, Texas.

Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in 2024.


The series takes place after the 2013–2018 Tomb Raider trilogy reboot, which concluded with Shadow of the Tomb Raider,[1] and it fills in the gap of the Tomb Raider timeline, bridging the reboot trilogy to the original series of games.[2]

Voice cast



In January 2021, it was reported that Netflix had ordered an anime-style television series based on Tomb Raider.[1] The initial order is for two seasons and was co-produced by Crystal Dynamics, Legendary Television, DJ2 Entertainment and Tractorpants. The animation was done by Powerhouse Animation.[3][4] Tasha Huo served as showrunner and executive produced alongside Dmitri M. Johnson, Stephan Bugaj, Howard Bliss and Jacob Robinson.[1] The writers' room broke in May 2021.[4] In September 2023, the series' title Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft, was unveiled at Netflix's Drop 01 livestream.[5]


In September 2021, it was announced that Hayley Atwell would voice Lara Croft.[6] Earl Baylon, who voiced Jonah Maiava in the video game reboot trilogy, reprises his role. In October 2021, Allen Maldonado joined the cast as Lara's tech expert, Zip, a character who was first introduced in the 2000 game Tomb Raider: Chronicles, and had not appeared in the franchise since the 2008 game Tomb Raider: Underworld.
