There's nothing quite like waking up early on a Saturday morning and watching cartoons as a child, and back in the early '90s, our favourite speedy blue hedgehog was among the stars on-screen in the UK, US and Canada. One dedicated group of fans has revealed that they're actually working to bring him back for a whole new season.
From 1993 to 1995, a show called Sonic the Hedgehog (dubbed Sonic SatAM by fans due to its Saturday morning time slot), was aired. It was darker in tone than the famous Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon and only lasted for two seasons before being cancelled; here's a quick look at the theme tune to jog your memory.
This new revival movement is being handled by a group called 'Fans United for SatAM'. They've been secretly working on a third season with the intent of making it official with SEGA down the line should the company want to get involved. Don't forget, Sonic Mania was developed by a team of staff who had previously worked on fangames, so anything's possible.
Paul Scott, creative director on the project, has shared the following with Nintendo Life:
"The series was cancelled 25 years ago but we have been working diligently to revive this epic show, staying faithful to the original 3rd season notes from the original staff, and give it the closure that fans have been long waiting for. Our group (Team Sea3on) has been involved in this project for several years."
They've set up a Patreon to help crowdfund this series, and have also released a trailer to show how the whole thing's coming along.
