Will There Be a Knuckles: Season 2?

Knuckles is labeled an event series, implying a single-season run, though co-creator Toby Ascher told Paste Magazine a continuation is possible. “If something is working really successfully, and we have a really great story to tell, we’re definitely going to expand on it,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any closed doors on future television, future seasons of Knuckles, so everything is wide open. I think it’s important to us that we’re not just making stuff to make stuff.”

Regardless of Knuckles’ TV future, the character will return to the big screen in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, slated to hit theaters on December 20.
