The guardian of the Chaos Emeralds is back in Knuckles, the upcoming event series from Paramount+ set in the Cinematic World of Sonic the Hedgehog and which will debut on Paramount+ in April.
The series will bring back Idris Elba, reprising his role as the titular echidna from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, on a brand new adventure which takes place between the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the recently-announced Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
The six-episode series will be coming to Paramount+, depicting the spiky-fisted friend of Sonic and Knuckles as he tries to train up Adam Pally’s Wade as an Echidna Warrior. As you can imagine, chaos ensues.
The series features an impressive ensemble that includes Adam Pally reprising his role as Wade Whipple, Ben Schwartz returning as Sonic the Hedgehog, Tika Sumpter as Maddie Wachowski, and Colleen O'Shaughnessey as Tails, alongside fellow guest stars Stockard Channing, Edi Patterson, Scott Mescudi, Ellie Taylor, Julian Barratt, Rory McCann, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel.
Based on the video game series of the same name, the original film Sonic the Hedgehog was released in 2020 while the second film hit the theatres in 2022.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will see the return of cast members Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Colleen O'Shaughnessey, and Idris Elba. Jeff Fowler, who directed the last two films, has returned to direct the third film.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is currently scheduled for a worldwide theatrical release on December 20, 2024.
