News Sonic the Hedgehog Netflix series to arrive in 2022 The blue buffer. February 01 2021 Henry Stenhouse Associate Editor

Interestingly enough, the announcement of the new Sonic Prime 3D animated series comes shortly after longtime Sonic voice actor Roger Craig Smith seemingly announced he would be parting permanently with the role.

Last December, Netflix announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon on Twitter, then nearly instantaneously unannounced it by deleting the tweet and pretending it didn't happen. Say hello to Sonic Prime! Sonic will set out to save the universe while having his own journey of self-discovery and redemption. And no, it doesn't look like this series is going to be directly tied into the recent live-action Sonic movie, as far as I can tell. "We're thrilled to partner with WildBrain, Man of Action Entertainment and Netflix to speed into this new, animated chapter in the Sonic franchise". Meanwhile, Man of Action, which brought you entertainment such as Ben 10 and Big Hero 6, will serve as showrunners and executive producers of the Netflix video game adaptation. The official confirmation today confirms that the animate show will air in 2022, and is targeted at kids aged six to eleven years of age, as well as the blue hedgehog's many older fans around the globe. The series is in development at Netflix, Sega of America, WildBrain, and Man of Action Entertainment to land in 2022 and will consist of 24 episodes. 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. Whoever steps into the blue blur's trademark shoes next, we'll likely be hearing them in Sonic Prime.
