The third Sonic the Hedgehog movie is due to close out 2024, but before then comes a TV show spin-off. Simply named Knuckles, the short series focuses on the powerful echidna, introduced in the second film and voiced by Idris Elba. You can watch the brand new trailer above.

Over the course of six episodes, Knuckles is set between films two and three, and centres around the red ball of fury making a place for himself in his new surroundings. New character Wade (Adam Pally) looks to be his human buddy, and Knuckles will be training him in the ways of his people. Meanwhile, a very angry-looking ex-employee of Robotnik is out for revenge against him, and is using his own power against him in some souped-up tech.

The show will be on Paramount+ in the US and Canada starting 26th April. It's not known where the series will be broadcast from in the UK, but you may be able to watch it via the bolt-on Paramount+ package for Amazon Prime.
