Ready your vocal cords for acapella goodness: a Pitch Perfect TV show is about to hit Peacock, and we can't wait to stream the vocal adventures of the Barden Bellas and Treblemakers. 

Destined to be one of the most exciting and fashionable TV shows in our queue, this small-screen adaptation is going to be a continuation of the series we've come to know and love. Fortunately, that means we won't have to part ways with our favorite characters. 

Variety broke the news of the series and revealed that Erin Underhill, the president of Universal Television said that they are anxious "to explore the hilarious and distinct characters in this (musical-filled) world."

Megan Amram will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman, Paul Brooks, and Scott Neimeyer are also set to have executive produce roles for the show.



'Pitch Perfect' TV show plot

Get ready for an overseas adventure: the Pitch Perfect TV show will focus on Bumper Allen (Adam Devine) who attempts to revitalize his music career in Germany. Fortunately for the head of The Treblemakers, one of his tracks becomes a breakout hit in Berlin! 

Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, told Variety they are particularly looking forward to focusing on Devine's "quirky, laugh-out-loud sensibility" for the series. 

Additional plot details have remained under wraps at this time. 

'Pitch Perfect' TV show release date

Patience, folks. News of the show has just been revealed, and a release date is still TBD, but we'll be sure to update you as soon as we have more information.
