A new CG-animated Sonic the Hedgehog television series is coming to Cartoon Network next year, Sega announced today.

The working title for the show is Sonic Boom, and it’s described as “a character-driven comedy” about Sonic and Tails, as well as Knuckles, and Amy Rose, and their ongoing opposition to Dr. Eggman. (When did we stop calling him Robotnik? Young people…).

“Sonic is the star of the Sega universe and the stage is now set for him to shine like never before,” Sega’s chief content officer for Sonic Hiroyuki Miyazaki said in a post on the Sega Blog. “By teaming up with world-class partners in television animation like Cartoon Network, Genao Productions, and GULLI, we’re ensuring that the Sonic legacy will be introduced to a new generation of children across the globe.

Sonic starred in five previous cartoon series prior to Sonic Boom, the first of which were Sonic the Hedgehog and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. The most recent series, Sonic X, aired in Japan from April 2003 to March 2004. Sonic Boom marks the first CG-animated Sonic show.

According to the Sega post, Sonic Boom has been greenlit for 52 11-minute episodes that will begin airing fall 2014.
