The Smurfs (French: Les Schtroumpfs) is a Belgian computer-animated television series developed by Dupuis Audiovisuel, IMPS, and Peyo Productions. It is the second television show based on the Smurf characters, after the original 1981 series of the same name.

The series was almost entirely produced in Belgium, with 75% of the animation completed at Dupuis' DreamWall animation studio in the city of Charleroi. Its CGI animation style is mainly based on the film Smurfs: The Lost Village.

The show was first announced by Peyo Productions in 2017. The next year, its European broadcasters were announced: Ketnet (Flanders), TF1 (France), KiKA (Germany), and La Trois (Wallonia). In 2020, it was reported that the broadcast rights had been picked up by the American entertainment brand Nickelodeon for several of its channels, but the airing agreement does not extend to the original 1980s Smurfs series (which continues to be distributed by Warner Bros. in North America).

After 18 months on pay-TV, The Smurfs will stream on Netflix in the United States and abroad. The series made its world premiere on April 18, 2021, on the La Trois channel in Belgium.
