It had been rumored for a little while, but now it’s official. Sonic the Hedgehog is getting a 3D animated series on Netflix, and you’ll be able to see it when it premieres in 2022.
Not much is known about the show. The only information given was in a tweet, and the tweet has since been deleted. The tweet, which has been screencapped, did say that WildBrain and Man of Action are making the show.
Man of Action is a United States-based writing collective that specializes in children’s media. Their resume includes shows such as Ben 10, Generator Rex, and Mega Man Fully Charged.
Wildbrain is a Canadian media company. They animated Mega Man Fully Charged, and are the owners of DiC Entertainment’s library. Yes, the DiC Entertainment behind SatAM, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sonic Underground.
DiC Entertainment no longer exists, but the people that own their library will be continuing their legacy. We’ll probably hear more about the show soon, but to see the Blue Blur coming to Netflix the same year that the Sonic movie sequel is premiering means that 2022 is going to be a very busy year for Sonic!
