Variety reports that Sega is bringing Sonic the Hedgehog back to the small screen in the Blue Blur's first CG-animated TV series. Sega is teaming up with Genao Productions to deliver the tentatively-titled Sonic Boom to Cartoon Network audiences in Fall 2014.
The comedy/adventure series, aimed at kids age 6-11, will kick off production with 52 11-minute episodes. Sonic Boom's producers plan to work closely with Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka to keep things true to Sega's established universe. The teaser image below shows some shadows cast by the iconic heroes, and the plot sounds like it will stay in familiar territory, with Sonic, Tails, and the rest squaring off against Doctor Eggman/Robotnik.
Bill Freiberger (The Simpsons, Drawn Together) is serving as co-executive producer, with Evan Baily (former executive VP of production and creative affairs for Classic Media) as showrunner.
