The next reunion for Frozen's Kristen Bell and Josh Gad won't actually be in the snow-covered Arendelle.

The singing duo will be lending their voices to Apple's newest episodic project, an animated musical comedy series from the mind of Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard.

The show, called Central Park, has already received a two-season commitment from Apple on the strength of its all-star cast, which also includes Hamilton's Leslie Odom Jr and Daveed Diggs, Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Transparent actress Kathryn Hahn and Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci.

Josh Gad is also co-writing Central Park with Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith. The premise of their series is based around a family of Central Park caretakers who are thrust into the unlikely position of having to save the world.

The commission from Apple was for 26 episodes, split equally between the first two seasons (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Bouchard has developed a cult following for many of his irreverent animated projects, including Home Movies and the cult classic animated sitcom Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.

On top of this huge Apple deal, Bouchard is also working on a Bob's Burgers feature film, which is expected to reach cinemas in the US and the UK in the summer of 2020.

Kristen Bell and Josh Gad will also be reuniting on Disney's Frozen 2, which arrives in the US on November 27, 2019 and then hits the UK on November 29, 2019.
