PRODUCTION

Development

During development onĀ Sonic the Hedgehog 2Ā (2022), the production team decided to expand theĀ Sonic the HedgehogĀ film franchise by developing television series. The producers decided to have the firstĀ SonicĀ spin-off to starĀ Knuckles the EchidnaĀ due to them having enjoyed the character’s comedic potrayal in the film and wanting to homage theĀ Sonic the Hedgehog 3/Sonic & KnucklesĀ double-feature by releasing the show around the same time asĀ Sonic the Hedgehog 3Ā (2024). By February 2022, development had begun on aĀ Sonic the HedgehogĀ series focusing on Knuckles for release onĀ Paramount+Ā in 2023.Ā SegaĀ andĀ Paramount PicturesĀ officially announced the series’ development at theĀ ViacomCBSĀ Investor Day presentation in February, withĀ Idris ElbaĀ confirmed to be reprising his role as Knuckles from the then-upcomingĀ Sonic the Hedgehog 2Ā and the series serving as a spin-off of the film. In June 2022, Paramount CEOĀ Brian RobbinsĀ referred to the series as aĀ miniseries.

In April 2023,Ā Sonic the Hedgehog 2Ā co-writerĀ John WhittingtonĀ was announced as the series’ developer andĀ head writer. Whittington will also executive produce the series alongside Elba andĀ SonicĀ film franchise creativesĀ Neal H. MoritzĀ and Toby Ascher ofĀ Original Film,Ā Jeff Fowler, and Toru Nakahara. Paramount Pictures andĀ Sega of AmericaĀ would serve as production companies on the series. In February 2024, it was reported that Ascher had received a co-developer credit alongside Whittington and served as the series’sĀ showrunner. The producers developed the series as if it was a third film in the franchise. In April 2024, Ascher said future seasons ofĀ KnucklesĀ are possible should the series prove successful and if the filmmakers had “a really great story to tell”.
