Sega announces new show Sonic Prime, right after departure of the character's main voice actor

February 01, 2021 1 min read

Today, Sega is vaguely teasing the next generation step for Sonic the Hedgehog's long TV career: Sonic Prime. Sega is very mum on details at the moment, but right now, we do know that the series will involve Sega and WildBrain, and will premiere in 2022 on Netflix.

Right now the plan is for a 24-episode order, and the show is aimed at "kids, families, and long-time fans." WildBrain Vancouver will handle the show, and Man of Action Entertainment, of Ben 10 fame, will handle showrunning duties. A voice actor for Sonic has not been announced at this time.

This comes directly following the departure of Roger Craig Smith, who announced that he would no longer be active in the Sonic franchise this past week. It seems like Sega was paving the way for someone else.
