Alienators: Evolution Continues (also known as Evolution: the Animated Series in the UK) is a traditionally animated series based on the moderately successful live-action feature film, Evolution.

Created by Louis Gassin, the series is composed by 26 episodes of half an hour each; it is produced by DIC Entertainment in association with The Montecito Picture Company, DreamWorks SKG, and Dentsu, Inc.. Although the Evolution intellectual property was owned by DreamWorks SKG (and is now the property of Paramount Pictures), the series itself is now owned by DHX Media, DIC's present successor.

The series was the basis for a Game Boy Advance game, that was developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Activision.


As with the movie, the premise of the series is that a meteor carrying organisms that evolve at a very quick rate crashes into the Arizona Desert; single-celled alien organisms on this meteor quickly evolve into monstrous creatures, dubbed the "Genus". A team of scientists, the Alienators, must eliminate all these creatures before they destroy all life on Earth. Follows up to the Ivan Reitman science fiction film, Evolution. The characters, Ira Kane, Harry Block, Lucy Mai, and Wayne Green must study all these extraterrestrial lifeforms and find a way to defeat them all. The "Genus" is led by a "humanoid manifestation" named Scopes.
