Sonic Prime season 2 was released on Netflix back in July 2023. Since it's been quite some time since the second season dropped, most people have already watched all eight episodes. Now, they're patiently waiting for the third installment. The second season ends on a cliffhanger, so there’s definitely more story to tell. We shared everything we know about the upcoming Sonic Prime season 3 right below.
When Sonic Prime was ordered back in 2021, the streaming giant had ordered 24 episodes. Sonic Prime season 1 consisted of eight episodes, followed by another eight episodes in the second season. This means an additional eight episodes would be released in the future.
Well, those remaining eight episodes will be released soon in a Sonic Prime season 3. How soon? In a month soon! Yes, you read that right. The third season of the kid animated series is coming in January 2024. The exact release date is Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024.
Sonic Prime announced to be coming back with new episodes
During Netflix's DROP 01 virtual event in September 2023, the streaming giant announced that new episodes of Sonic Prime would be coming soon. The streamer also dropped a first-look video at the new episodes. However, the streaming giant did not reveal if the new episodes will make up a third season. So, we thought that Netflix would release the last episodes in a Sonic Prime season 2 part 2 instead of dropping them in a new season.
Well, it looks like the streamer decided to go the new season route, but instead of calling it Sonic Prime season 3, it's being called Sonic Prime Chapter 3. But to keep things simple, we'll be referring to the new season as the third season.
Spoilers from Sonic Prime season 2 ahead!
Sonic Prime season 2 ending
After defeating all the Eggforcers, Mr. Babble, Dr. Deep, and the Prismatic Titan, Sonic heads to the temple where Nine is. While Nine was reassembling the Paradox Prism, he noticed there was a piece missing. He tells Sonic about it and then reveals to him the real reason on why he wants to put the shards together. He tells Sonic he wants to make a new, and better world. Obviously, Sonic doesn’t like this plan and wants to rebuild his old world of Green Hill. Nine disagrees and betrays Sonic. He blasts him back and goes through a portal with the shards, leaving Sonic behind.
Who could be in the third season?
We can definitely expect Deven Mack to reprise the voice role of Sonic the Hedgehog. Brian Drummond, Ashleigh Ball, and Ian Hanlin would also likely come back and voice their characters. Once we have the official voice cast list for season 3, we'll be sure to share it right away.
Here's what Sonic Prime season 3 will be about via Netflix:
"After Nine steals the Paradox Prism to create a world all for himself, Sonic must team up with unlikely allies to protect the universe as he knows it."
