Returning cast members also include Adam Pally, Edi Patterson, Julian Barratt, Scott Mescudi, and Ellie Taylor. Guest stars such as Rory McCann and Tika Sumpter, reprising her role as Maddie, are expected to make appearances.
The show’s official logline reveals that Knuckles will mentor and train Wade, portrayed by Adam Pally, to become an Echidna Warrior. The pilot episode is being directed by Jeff Fowler, the director of both Sonic the Hedgehog films, who also serves as an executive producer. John Whittington, a screenwriter for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, has written the pilot and heads the writing team as an executive producer.
