The cast of Knuckles, the spin-off of Sonic the Hedgehog, is announced

Adam Pally will star in the upcoming spinoff TV series set in the world of Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, like knuckles Is directed to Paramount+, with a cast announced today. He joins Idris Elba, who provides the voice of the titular echidna, as he did in sonic the hedgehog 2. Pally, best known for his roles in Happy endings and The Mindy Projectwill repeat his sonic 2 role as Wade Whipple. The series will also star Tika Sumpter. The series will take place between the events of sonic the hedgehog 2 and the third film, which is scheduled to be released by the end of 2024.

In the series, Knuckles “agrees to train Wade as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior”, according to the official tagline (through varietywho broke the casting news).

Last week, Sonic the Hedgehog Director Jeff Fowler, who will direct the pilot, said last week that he’s excited for fans to see more of the character.

“Oh is very early with all that. One thing I knew after we finished the movie, people are going to love this character. They’re going to love Idris playing this character and they’re absolutely going to want more of Knuckles,” Fowler told Discussing Film. . So, we’ll go from there. He is such a wonderful character that there are so many different ways you can go. [in the series] that fans can really get excited about, so hopefully it’s all coming very soon. But for now, I’m very excited for people to see the sequel.”

Fowler, who directed the first two Sonic the Hedgehog films, will direct the pilot episode and will executive produce the series. Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Toby Ascher and Toru Nakahara, who worked on the films, will serve as executive producers, as will Elba. Ged Wright, Brandon Trost, Jorma Taccone, and Carol Banker are also directing episodes. Paramount Pictures and Sega of America produce.

In the games, after debuting as an antagonist in sonic the hedgehog 3 on the Sega Genesis, Knuckles returned as a playable character in sonic and knuckles. In 1995, the character even got his own spin-off game, called Knuckles Chaotix. Since the previous movie ended with Knuckles and Sonic seemingly having a grudging respect for each other, it’s likely that the show’s character will be heading in a similar direction.

It is not yet known exactly when the series will debut. The first two Sonic the Hedgehog the movies are on Paramount+ now.
