In a brief synopsis about the series provided by Netflix back in 2021, the streaming service described the series as a “24-episode animated adventure for kids, families, and long-time fans draws upon the keystones of the brand and features the ‘Blue Blur’ of video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands.”
In addition to saving the universe, Sonic will undergo “a journey of self-discovery and redemption,” per the synopsis.
