Netflix has announced, in a now deleted tweet, that it will release a new animated series based on Sonic the Hedgehog. The series is produced in partnership with Sega and animated in 3D by a Canadian studio called Wild Brain in collaboration with Man of Action Entertainment (known for Ben 10 and Disney’s Big Hero 6 TV series).
For the time being, nothing is known about exactly what the series will look like. Netflix does indicate that the series will be shown in 2022.
The new Sonic series would mark the latest video game-based TV show for Netflix, which also has Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Resident Evil series in the works. The streamer also already offers several seasons of Castlevania.
