For European fans looking to catch up on the Sonic Boom cartoon, the wait may not be much longer. The May issue of Licencing World was published today, and it had some new information on SEGA’s plans for Boom this year.
Firstly, Sonic Boom season 1 is to begin airing on Netflix in June 2017 for more countries. While some countries already have Sonic Boom on Netflix, there are several notable countries which currently lack it, such as the US, UK and Germany. As the magazine is primarily British, it’s a safe assumption that at least the UK will get it.
Secondly, it also confirms that season 2 is to start airing across EMEA in 2017. While it isn’t any more specific than the year, France started airing season 2 just recently, so it’s already began in at least one European country. For reference, EMEA stands for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, so this covers a rather large amount of countries it could reach. No information on specific channels or time slots at this point in time, however.
So after a rather long wait, it looks like the rest of the world is being brought up to speed with the latest Boom content. Let’s hope sooner rather than later!
