The kid network will be rebooting its current CG “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series as a 2D animated series with the title “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The network made the announcement at its upfront presentation in New York on Thursday afternoon.

“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. “’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.”

The new 2D series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer for the critically acclaimed Adult Swim series “Samurai Jack”) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, current “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.

The CG series will air one last season starting Sunday, March 19. Nickelodeon has ordered 26 episodes of the 2D reboot to air starting in fall 2018.

“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.

Fingers cross it turns out good.

Fingers crossed they will use the same voice actors but if they don't, hope the new ones are good.

Why are they rebooting?

MikeandRaph87 03-02-2017 04:19 PM

I was just about to post it. Rise of The Turtles will be the title. A 2D aninimated show picking up in the Fall of 2018. A reboot it states. Will it be a complete remake separate from 2012 CGI cartoon a soft reboot? That is the main question.

Just read this on TMNT official facebook page and came running to see what we knew about it.
What makes me most happy about this is it will mean more figures!!
A 'lighter feel' could also mean a little more variants creativity, as arcs can be shorter and more diverse, like turtles on the beach, christmas special etc

Ugh. Sounds like "Teen Titans Go" for TMNT.

Rat King is dead, Shredder is dead, Splinter is dead all for good this time. There is only so much one can do when key characters are killed off. They have gotten darker than expected and want a lighter tone. Instead of pulling a lighter shade all of a sudden it wanted to do it in a restart. Not to mention reboot gets a fresh start and like a comic reboot a temporary spike. The question is how much of the spike will stick. I am not used to the idea one show ends and another begins. No Next Mutation does not count.

Another thing of note is the title is the episode title of the first episode of the 2012 cartoon. A subtitle perhaps which could change by the season?

Really hoping this isn't going to be Nickelodeon's answer to Teen Titans Go.

Redworld96 03-02-2017 04:28 PM

If I've understood well, its a reboot with the same turtles of 2012 right? I mean, will it be considered in the same universe?

John Pannozzi 03-02-2017 04:28 PM

I really like Andy Suriano's artwork. If his designs for this show are half as good as some of his other work, it will at least look great.

Which is a f**king awesome show.

Don't know how to feel about this, guess I'll wait and see before passing judgement on it.

Raph's Girl 03-02-2017 04:31 PM

Well that's one way for Splinter and Shredder to return. Just reboot the entire bloody thing as a 2D adventure. :roll:

Wow, that sounds pretty ghastly.

The plan is to have them "encounter absurd new mutants"? "Fulfill their destiny to be heroes"? What?

Blegh, whatever. It's for little tykes. Little tykes and Fred Wolf nostalgiacs. Like all of it, these days.

Very glad that Nick indeed has more plans and they really will in fact be doing a new show after this one. :D

I hope it's cute and fun, though a little disappointed with the "a younger and lighter feel" thing. As much as TMNT has struggled with the "kid's thing" stigma, and because the current series already makes the Turtles feel rather young, more-so than their counter parts in other versions, what's even younger going to be like... Half Shell? I had hoped a next series would be somewhat loosely a continuation of the current and age them up a little.

I'm sure it will be adorable, but disheartened that an 'older' series (not necessarily just or adults, but at least teens and older as target audience) will still have to wait for god knows how long...

Hey, that's my thing.

But yeah, I hope it's dope. Nothing wrong with a more comedy leaning show.

DisKosh 03-02-2017 04:39 PM

Of course I'll give it a go but my gut reaction is that it doesn't sound very good to me.

I just want volume 4 of the Mirage comics to be turned into a show for teenagers and adults.
