Knuckles spin-off series starring Idris Elba officially detailed

Back in February of last year we reported that a Knuckles the Echidna spin-off TV show was in the works at Paramount+ following the success of the second Sonic the Hedgehog film – which of course introduced Knuckles to the film franchise. One year on from its initial announcement we now have official details on the show – including the fact that the film’s director will return for the TV show.

As reported by Variety, the Knuckles spin-off show is set between the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (currently planned to hit cinemas in December 2024) and sees Knuckles “[agreeing] to train Wade as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior”. Unsurprisingly, both Idris Elba and Adam Pally will reprise their roles as Knuckles and Wade whippie respectively for the show.

Making the show feel in alignment with the films, Sonic 1 and 2’s director Jeff Fowler is serving as an executive producer for the series and will even direct the pilot episode. More of the film’s creative crew are also returning for the show, with Neal H. Moritz; Toby Ascher; Toru Nakahara and Elba himself all serving as executive producers.

Both Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 were fun films with near-universal appeal, and so it is exciting to see this iteration of the Blue Blur (and his friends) expanding into more mediums. Hopefully the show ends up being just as good as the films. We will have to wait and see.

KitGuru says: What do you think of the details released so far? Are you excited for this show? What did you think of Idris Elba as Knuckles in Sonic 2? Let us know down below.
