TMNT Returns in New Series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


For this year’s Upfront Presentation, Nickelodeon announced the return of Leo, Raph, Mikey, and Don via a new 26-episode 2D animated (yay!) series tentatively titled “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

Slated for a Fall 2018 launch, the new series will be executive produced by Samurai Jack character designer Andy Suriano and current TMNT series supervising producer Ant Ward. The series will be developed at Nickelodeon’s Burbank Studios.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles will see the four heroes in a half shell trying to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City, all the while encountering absurd new mutants and bizarre creatures. Of course, their fondness for pizza will still be a factor, but new to the series is the concept of mystic, ninja powers that the quartet never knew existed will be discovered and tapped into, helping the heroes in their fight against things that go bump in the night.

“The Turtles is a property that has reinvention in its DNA, which keeps it fresh and relevant to every new generation while satisfying the demand from its adult fans,” said Zarghami. “Turtles has been an incredibly important franchise for us since we reignited it five years ago, and we’re excited for the new series to take the characters in a different direction with more humor, a younger and lighter feel and all-new dimensions to explore.”

If 2018 seems too far away for you, a new season of the current CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series will be premiering this coming Sunday, March 19 at 9am ET/PT on Nickelodeon. Cowabunga!
