Netflix will be producing a new animated series for Sonic the Hedgehog called Sonic Prime! The upcoming series will be on Netflix in 2022.
Here’s what Variety said about the upcoming series:
The 24-episode series features Sonic in an adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands — and also represents a “journey of self-discovery and redemption” for the speedy, blue spiny mammal.
The “Sonic Prime” series on Netflix will be aimed at kids aged six to 11, as well as “legacy Sonic fans of all ages.” The series for Netflix will be animated at WildBrain’s Vancouver studio, and Sega and WildBrain will jointly participate across production, distribution and licensing. Man of Action Entertainment, creators of “Ben 10” and the characters and team in Disney’s Oscar-winning feature “Big Hero 6,” are on board as showrunners and executive producers.
At first, I wasn’t sure if I was on board with the announcement until I found out Man of Action was working on it! I’ve waited for a Sonic series since Sonic X (Sonic Boom was not my cup of tea), but now it seems like Netflix might give us something great. Now, I’m curious where this takes place and why would this story be about redemption? I hope they elaborate more about that soon. With the success of the Sonic movie and now with this brand new series, it seems like Sonic is getting the love he deserved and all we need now is a brand new amazing game to complete the holy trinity.
