Everyone’s favourite blue hedgehog is blazing his way back to television after a four year absence.
Netflix has confirmed that they are working on a new Sonic series. The show is entitled Sonic Prime and is slated to air next year and will have 24 episodes.
“Sonic is a beloved character and holds a special place in everyone’s heart including my own,” Dominique Bazay, Netflix’s director of original animation, said in a statement. “I spent many hours with the Blue Blur as a kid and it’s a privilege to be able to bring this character everyone knows and loves on a brand new adventure with Netflix — one that a generation of loyal fans and brand new fans around the world can enjoy.”
Sonic has appeared in five animated series beginning with Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog in 1993.
The video game icon also starred in a very successful feature film last year alongside Jim Carrey who played Sonic’s dastardly and eternal rival: Dr. Robotnik.
