Nearly a month after its (now deleted) announcement, we still don’t know much about the Sonic Netflix series. Technically, it hasn’t even been officially announced! Nevertheless, we now at least know one thing it won’t be: an adaptation of the IDW Sonic comic series.
In his first BumbleKast Q&A of the year, Flynn was addressing a question about Netflix, and jokingly mentioned that the new series won’t be based on IDW. Not especially surprising, as Sonic’s animated media has always ignored his paneled adventures, but it’s always nice to have a new detail! That said, this does not necessarily rule out elements of the book, such as original characters, from being used in the series.
You can check out out the BumbleKast Q&A here. The question is addressed at 33:40.
