This release is part of Netflix’s significant investment in its kids’ lineup, highlighted by a recent major deal with Nickelodeon for new titles.
Will Sonic X feature the original dub on Netflix?
It’s currently unclear whether Netflix will include the original Japanese dub of Sonic X, with the option for an English dub as well. Netflix has provided both audio options for other series in the past, and the inclusion of a Japanese genre tag suggests that both may be available.
As of now, two seasons of the series are available on Prime Video in the United States, and one season is available on Hulu.
Which Netflix regions are getting Sonic X?
In addition to the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom are all scheduled to receive the show.
Netflix also currently hosts the 1993 series The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, which features 20 episodes. Sonic Boom, the 2014 series with 52 episodes, isn’t available on Netflix in the U.S. but can be found in regions such as Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
