Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was still months away when Paramount announced plans to make a sequel and spin-off series featuring Sonic. joins (voiced by Idris Elba), so we’ve been waiting a long time for more news. And the wait is over.

Jeff Fowlerdirector of both Sonic the Hedgehog movies and star of the spin-off, announced on Twitter that what appears to be called Knuckles has started filming, and it looks like our red friend will be wearing his cool cowboy hat this time around.

And not only that. Variety reports that Adam Pally and Tika Sumpter will reprise their roles as Wade Whipple and Maddie, respectively, while Edi Patterson, Ellie Taylor, Julian Barratt, Rory McCann and Scott Mescudi will play roles that have yet to be announced on the show.

We’ll know more in the coming months, as Knuckles is set to begin airing on Paramount+ later this year.
