SEGA has confirmed that the Netflix animated series “Sonic Prime,” based on the beloved “Sonic the Hedgehog” games, will be getting more episodes “later this year”.
The confirmation comes in the wake of the eight episodes of the first season releasing back in December. The project will reportedly have twenty-four episodes in total. Thus second and third instalments of eight episodes each are on the way.
The only question is whether both will arrive in 2023 or will that third one not hit until 2024. The show scored softly positive critics notices and very positive audience reviews after it was released.
The first season began with Sonic recklessly shattering the reality-bending Paradox during a battle with Dr. Eggman. This destroys the universe and creates the “Shatterverse”, a void where each shard of the prism forms an alternative dimension inhabited by alternative versions of Sonic’s friends.
Sonic ventures into each of the perilous worlds to restore the artifact, while combatting a group of Dr. Eggman variants called the Chaos Council that seeks to conquer these new worlds.
In the second season, Sonic and Shadow will work together to find and recover the pieces of the Paradox Prism and try to restore their own Universe while also travelling to New Shatterspaces and confronting new versions of their friends.
Marking the sixth animated television series based on the franchise, the series is produced by Netflix Animation, WildBrain Studios, Man of Action and Sega Sammy Group’s animation studio Marza Animation Planet. Deven Mack, Brian Drummond, Ashleigh Ball, Adam Nurada, Shannon Chan-Kent, and Ian Hanlin lend their voices.
