Sonic the Hedgehog 3D animated series in the works for Netflix

Looks like Sonic fans have something to look forward to in 2022.

While it's still a ways off, Netflix has announced a 3D animated series for Sonic the Hedgehog is in the works.

It is being brought to you by the folks behind the Carmen Sandiego series on Netflix and Ben 10.

The news was posted earlier on Twitter, but apparently, Netflix jumped the gun and pulled the tweet super fast.

Yet, it wasn't fast enough as Wario64 grabbed a screencap for posterity.

In case you can't read the tweet, here's what it says: "Rings? Check. Sneakers? Check. Speed? SONIC. SEGA’s legendary video game icon Sonic the Hedgehog races onto Netflix in a new 3D animated series from @SEGA, @WildBrainHQ and @ManOfActionEnt premiering in 2022.”

Netflix really likes video game properties, as it has the Castlevania series, it is developing a live-action adaptation of Dragon’s Lair, a Splinter Cell anime series from John Wick's writer is coming, a Beyond Good and Evil film is in the works for the service, there's a Dragon’s Dogma anime coming, and a CGI series called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is also in the works.

And of course, there's The Witcher series, but it is based on the books, yet still appeals to the video game crowd.
