New Sonic the Hedgehog animated TV show heading to Netflix in 2022

Likely unrelated to the 2020 film (that's also getting a sequel!).

A new Sonic the Hedgehog animated TV show will head to Netflix in 2022, the streaming company today confirmed.

Well, make that “sort of confirmed.” Netflix originally posted an announcement to Twitter before shortly pulling it down.

“Rings? Check. Sneakers? Check. Speed? SONIC.” Netflix originally posted. “SEGA’s legendary video game icon Sonic the Hedgehog races onto Netflix in a new 3D animated series from [SEGA], [Wild Brain] and [Man of Action Entertainment] premiering in 2022.”

There’s some serious talent behind the new show — Wild Brain has worked on Netflix’s Carmen Sandiego series alongside Apple TV Plus’ The Snoopy Show, while Man of Action Entertainment is known for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Ben 10.

We’ll have more on the new Netflix Sonic the Hedgehog animated series as it’s made available.
