Sonic the Hedgehog is heading to Netflix with a new 3D animated series. Netflix and Sega announced the new series via Twitter on Thursday, saying that Sonic will make his debut on the streaming service in 2022. Netflix later deleted the tweet.
“Rings? Check. Sneakers? Check. Speed? SONIC,” Netflix said in the original tweet. “SEGA’s legendary video game icon Sonic the Hedgehog races onto Netflix in a new 3D animated series from @SEGA, @WildBrainHQ and @ManOfActionEnt premiering in 2022.”
Wild Brain is responsible for the Carmen Sandiego series on Netflix and The Snoopy Show for Apple TV Plus. Man of Action is known for its work on Ben 10, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, and Mega Man: Fully Charged.
