Sonic Prime is the sixth animated show based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series, following Sonic Boom (2014). It will be the franchise’s first series to make a debut on a streaming service.

Sega, Man of Action Entertainment, and WildBrain will be producing the first season, which will consist of 24 episodes.

The story will focus on Sonic embarking on a “high-octane adventure” after he and Dr. Eggman accidentally create a universe-shattering event during a fight. As he travels across the multiverse to save his friends, he discovers new worlds and allies who help him on his journey.

As of now, the trailers have teased Shadow the Hedgehog as an antagonist and Big the Cat as a supporting character. The series could potentially feature the Mystic Ruins, home of Big the Cat.
