Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. It is the coming-of-age story of a young boy named Steven Universe (voiced by Zach Callison), who lives in the fictional town of Beach City with the “Crystal Gems” – Pearl (Deedee Magno), Garnet (Estelle), and Amethyst (Michaela Dietz), three magical humanoid aliens. Steven, who is half-Gem, goes on adventures with his friends and helps the Gems protect the world from their own kind. It premiered on November 4, 2013 as Cartoon Network’s first animated series to be solely created by a woman. Books, comics and a video game based on the series have also been released. When the series is in a hiatus, there would usually be multiple episodes airing after it concluded. The theme of the series is love and family as it is based on the creator’s brother, Steven Sugar.
Rebecca developed the series while working as a writer and storyboard artist on Adventure Time, and left the show’s production when Cartoon Network green-lit her series for full production. During the writing phase, the writers would do homemade games that helps them come up with new stories for the plot. Since the series is storyboard-driven, the writers and the storyboards would have to work together to make an episode. The main voice actors (Callison, Dietz, Magno, & Estelle) record multiple episodes during recording sessions for three to four hours. The series has received critical acclaim for its art design, music, voice acting, characterization, promotion of LGBTQ themes and its science fantasy worldbuilding, and has a broad and active fanbase. It has been nominated for three Emmy Awards and five Annie Awards. It was renewed for a fourth and fifth season in March 2016. The fifth season premiered on May 29, 2017.
