All of those you list are humor-focused. They certainly aren't anything else-focused. I mean there's action, but that's peripheral.

And haven't we already got a "Rise"?

Not as a series name though.

Though I'm not sure what we'll call the current show though, we can't call it the Nicktoon anymore since it's only the first Nick produced show. Tales, maybe? Since it's the name it'll conclude with.

Then we'd have:
Fred Wolf
Next Mutation
4Kids
Tales
Rise

I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic. At least it probably means we have a few more years of turtle mania.

OT
NM
2k3
2k7
2k12
Which would make the new show the Nick Toon, or 2k18.

I call the Nick show either "The Nick Show" or "2k12". It fits.

I actually wish they held off until at least 2020 for a new cartoon. Feels too soon to start it right after the current series.

I also liked how each decade of kids had a different show to grow up with:

80's/90's kids = Original cartoon

Early 2000's kids = 4kids series, as it started in 2003 and ended in 2009

2010's era kids: Nick which started in 2012 and may end in either late 2017 or early 2018.

I will be sad if this is aimed just at little kids and is unappealing to older audiences. I can appreciate cute kid stuff to some extent, but some of the stupidness other Nick shows like to aim for... ugh. Please no. Even if young, it just better be cute and still a decent enough representation, seeing how this one will likely be my nephew's introduction until he's old enough to watch repeats/video of the other three.

If this is kiddie stuff though, when many would very gladly see them continue to get past the "kid's thing" stigma (not losing it entirely, just expanding)... seriously, Nick/Viacom, you owe us a grown up TMNT one day. Viacom's got other channels they could do a mature cartoon on... (Heck, their channel Spike recently got rebranded as "The Paramount Network". Could run an older series a little hand-in-hand with future movie iterations.)

Or like a lot of people these days and in the future, maybe mixed? Her dad's an Irish O'Neil (gotta get that name from somewhere) and her mom, who we haven't (ever in any version? not counting Mom-thing) met, is Hispanic?

Either way I'd at least like to have April back as an adult.

I would not be surprised at all if at some point they do a plastic Shellraiser case akin to the Turtle Van case that exists for the original cartoon.

i just want it to have some kind of good vision.
choose one person to run it, not five, and keep playmates as far away as possible.

oh, and make sure the people in charge of it aren't jerks this time ;o)

TV shows aren't your little fanfiction. One person can't run a show direction/writing wise all by himself.

Obviously there are plenty of exciting new directions one could take TMNT in, but... This kind of stuff makes me think Viacom is running out of ideas

What do we call our Bayturtles sequel? Let's name it after that video game we made 2 years ago.

What do we call our new cartoon? Let's name it after the first episode of its direct predecessor.

I'm most certain they'll realise the miss-information this would create and change it: it's the working title and they've got more than a year ahead.

Oh, right, because rebooting it with another show the year the other show ends won't saturate sh*t.

God help us all if this is Teen Titans Go for TMNT, which is exactly what this sounds like. Granted, we're going off a couple sentences here, but I'm really not a fan of those couple of sentences. If they can make it funny, then it'll be all good, but if it's a response to TTG, a show that derives its entire sense of humor from being over-the-top-bonkers all the time, I just can't see it working.

Even if you enjoy that kind of humor, it's the kind of humor you can't quite replicate if the right people aren't put on it (Ren & Stimpy, Shrek).

Well that type of show will work, it just won't be for us. Teen Titans Go was a massive success for Cartoon Network, hence why they marathon it on their schedule all the time and why so many other shows are trying to copy it.

Is this restart in response to the deaths? Why not just revive them in-story and light up the tone? Seems a more cohesive approach.
