While Sega has promised to follow up Sonic the Hedgehog film with a sequel likely adding Tails the Fox and Knuckles the Echinda for 2021. It appears that not all we will get from Sonic the Hedgehog as Netflix has announced a new animated series for 2022 called "Sonic Prime." If its half as good as Sonic X then we should be excited.
According to PCgamer the series will be aimed at kids 6-11, which means grown adults aren't allowed to gripe about it on the internet. Elsewhere, the announcement casts the net slightly wider, recommending it for "kids, families and long-time fans. Sonic Prime is described as a "high octane adventure" following Sonic and his race to save a "strange new multiverse". The show is also described as a "journey of self-discovery and redemption
It'll be animated by WildBrain, which has previously worked on Snoopy in Space, Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, Carmen Sandiego and Mega Man: Full Charged, among others. WildBrain will collaborate with Sega on production as well, while the creators of Ben 10, Man of Action Entertainment, will act as executive producers and showrunners.
