A New Sonic the Hedgehog Series Is Landing on Netflix

Sonic Prime

Sonic Prime is a new Sonic the Hedgehog series coming to Netflix.

You know Sonic the Hedgehog, right? Red sneakers, blue spikes, runs about a lot? Gets one good game every fifteen years? That’s the fellow. Well now he’s getting a new series, dubbed Sonic Prime.

It’s not, despite the name, a Transformers/Sonic crossover, but a 3D animated show from Man of Action Entertainment, the team behind Ben 10 and Big Hero 6: The Series. The last Sonic series was Sonic Boom which aired in 2016 and 2017 and, for some reason, gave Sonic the Hedgehog a neckscarf.

There’s no definite release date for the series, though it’s supposed to be dropping some time in 2022. We’re hoping for a twist whereby Doctor Robotnik is putting the animals into robot suits to protect them from a coming apocalypse but Sonic and co. foil his wildlife-saving efforts, the fields.

In the meantime, you can check out Sonic Boom on YouTube or, if you’ve got a Roku device, you can also dig into Sonic Underground and a wealth of other old-school Sonic shows.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
