Netflix Orders New Animated Sonic the Hedgehog Series, ‘Sonic Prime’


Everyone’s favorite video game hedgehog is coming back to your screen, this time as an animated series.

Netflix has announced that Sonic the Hedgehog will be starring in a new 3D animated series, Sonic Prime, set to premiere in 2022.

Man of Action Entertainment, creators of Ben 10, will be serving as showrunners and executive producers for the 24-episode series, and the show itself will be created by Sega of America alongside Wildbrain. Aimed at children ages 6 to 11, the animated adventure show will feature the high-speed blue hedgehog in some high-octane adventures as he races to save the universe in a brand new journey.

With the Sonic video game series celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the series announcement could not have come at a better time to draw in fans who are excited to have the opportunity to introduce their children to the character through this new show.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
