WildBrain today officially announced Sonic Prime, a new 3D animated Sonic the Hedgehog series slated to debut on Netflix in 2022.
Viewers are expected to see Sonic traverse through a high-speed adventure in a packed 24-episode series where “the fate of a strange new multiverse” is at stake.
“Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption,” said WildBrain in a official statement.
The program is geared towards audiences six to 11, but will reportedly respect the “scale and scope” of the adventures exhibited throughout the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
