In December, Netflix tweeted (and then deleted) info about an upcoming 3D animated Sonic the Hedgehog series. We haven’t heard anything since then, but today Netflix, Sega, and WildBrain officially announced Sonic Prime, which will arrive in 2022. Sonic Prime is starting with a 24-episode run, and it’s not clear if that’ll be the extent of it or whether Netflix can option more later. The press release says the series is for “kids, families, and long-time fans,” so don’t expect a gritty,
Violent Sonic reboot. Indeed, it’s focused on the six-to-11 age range, though it seems likely that older fans will probably give it a go. The show will be run by Man of Action Entertainment, a group that created Ben 10 and the original Big Hero 6 coming that Disney’s movie was loosely based on.
