The show will debut in winter 2022 with one 40-minute episode and seven 20-minute episodes. WildBrain Ltd.'s Vancouver studio will animate 24 episodes in total. The staff of Man of Action Entertainment (Ben 10, Big Hero 6) will serve as showrunners and executive producers, and Sega and WildBrain will handle production, distribution, and licensing.
Netflix teases that the story will center on Sonic's adventure in a "strange new multiverse." Sonic will set out to save the universe while having his own journey of self-discovery and redemption. Shadow the Hedgehog will also be in the show.
The Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film opened in the United States on April 8 and earned an estimated US$26.5 million on its opening day, according to Box Office Mojo. It earned an estimated US$70 million internationally, and an estimated worldwide total of US$141 million in its opening weekend.
Paramount Pictures announced in February that it has already started development on a third Sonic the Hedgehog film, as well as the first live-action series for the Sonic franchise. The live-action series will debut on Paramount Pictures' Paramount+ streaming service in 2023, and will center on the character Knuckles, with Idris Elba reprising the role from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
