Netflix, Sega of America, and WildBrain have officially announced a new animated Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic Prime, which will premiere in 2022.


Sonic Prime will feature 24 episodes that is designed for kids, families, and long-time fans of the video game franchise. Sonic goes on 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."


The Netflix series will be animated by WildBrain, while Sega will help in its production, distribution, and licensing. Man of Action Entertainment, creators of Ben 10, have been brought on as showrunners and executive producers.
