Sonic The Hedgehog In New Netflix Series, SONIC PRIME — Early Details Released

Netflix has announced that Sonic the Hedgehog will be returning to television in a new 3D animated series, SONIC PRIME, placing the character in a new Multiverse.

Celebrating his 30th anniversary this year, Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog not only starred in one of the top-grossing movies of 2020, but in 2022 will be returning to television in a new streaming series from Netflix, Sonic Prime. The first season will be made up of 24 episodes, and it’s coming from Wildbrain, the studio behind The Snoopy Show on Apple+ and Carmen Sandiego, which aired on Netflix as well. Creating and showrunning the series is the force behind Ben 10, Man of Action Entertainment.

Part of the official announcement reads, “The 24-episode animated adventure for kids, families and long-time fans draws upon the keystones of the brand and features the ‘Blue Blur’ of video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe. It’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption.”

Josh Schereba, President of Wildbrain, commented in a statement, “We’ve witnessed first-hand the enduring popularity of this brand from the strong and steady global demand for our library of legacy Sonic series. We look forward now to bring fresh and exciting Sonic content to fans both new and old.

Added Sega’s chief brand officer, Ivo Gerscovich, “Sonic the Hedgehog is a global entertainment icon that has captivated audiences since its video game debut in 1991. With over 1.14 billion game units sold and downloaded to date, an exciting feature film, a robust licensing program and more SEGA’s iconic hedgehog continues to surprise and delight audiences worldwide.”

Previous Sonic animated television series are Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (1993), Sonic the Hedgehog (1993 to 1994), Sonic Underground (1999), Sonic X (2003 to 2006), Sonic Boom (2014 to 2017) and, of course, Sonic Prime in 2022.
