Netflix confirms animated Sonic the Hedgehog series due in 2022
Netflix confirmed that it is working on a brand new 3D-animated Sonic the Hedgehog series called Sonic Prime, with a release due in 2022. Back in December, Netflix already sent out a tweet about the upcoming series, but deleted the message shortly after, leaving people guessing whether the series was happening or not.
In a new tweet, the streaming giant re-confirms the series. Sonic Prime consists of 24 episodes and sees Sonic travelling a strange new multiverse. According to the announcement, the blue hedgehog will go on “a journey of self-discovery and redemption”. Dominique Bazay, director of the series, has big plans for Sonic and is looking forward to the project.
“I spent many hours with the Blue Blur as a kid and it’s a privilege to be able to bring this character everyone knows and loves on a brand new adventure with Netflix — one that a generation of loyal fans and brand new fans around the world can enjoy”, says the director.
The family-friendly series will be animated by Wildbrain, with the help of Man of Action Entertainment and Sega.
