Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will soon enter its fifth season. However, it looks as though Season 5 will conclude the much-loved animated series, marking the end of the Turtles' run in the world of 3D animation.
Not to worry though, as the network has announced a brand new series which will debut on Nickelodeon in 2018. Entitled Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the latest incarnation of the Heroes In A Half Shell will be returning to 2D animation, something fans of the original cartoon are sure to get excited about.
You can read the official synopsis for the new show posted below...
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will follow Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new mutants and battle bizarre creatures all while enjoying their favorite slice of pizza. Tapping into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, the four brothers must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.
Sure sounds interesting, even though we're not sure how we feel about the more mystical element that'll be present in the new show. Still, the return to 2D animation is exciting, and is a guarantee we'll be checking it out.
"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 Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group in a statement. “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."
Andy Suriano and Ant Ward will executive produce the new animated series.
This is very exciting news! We loved the classic Ninja Turtles cartoon growing up, and while we're going to miss the current 3D version, we're very eager to see what comes next for the Heroes In A Half She'll moving into 2018.
Look for more news soon, Infinite Earths fans!
