Paramount Plus has released the official trailer for Knuckles, the upcoming spinoff that is set between the films Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog 3, which is slated to bow in theaters on Dec. 20.
The new live-action series will follow Knuckles (Idris Elba) on a hilarious and action-packed journey of self-discovery as he agrees to train Wade (Adam Pally) as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior. The goal? To save the world, of course. Dr Robotnik isn’t the villain this time around but one of his lackeys, The Buyer, is – and The Buyer wants Knuckles’ power.
Jeff Fowler returned to helm the first episode of Knuckles. He also directed the first two Sonic movies.
The series will stream on April 27 in all additional Paramount+ territories, and later in the year in Japan.
