For it to last for 3+ seasons i with Hun Rocksteady Bebop Krang e.t.c we must be the main villians and appear on most if not all episodes. If it continues the way it is now with jut some mutants fightingt the turtles and not me foot ninjas Stockman Hun Tiger Claw e.t.c it will not last so long.

It makes sense if season 2 would be called Dawn of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

hopefully there won't be anything titled Dawn of the TMNT cause it'd probably wake up those guys again with that Dawn comic/movie

The series has grown on me. It's not a traditional take on the characters, but it's far superior to something like TNM. I like the characters' personalities/voices, and the animation is more fluid than you would think when looking at the designs.

It's different, yet familiar. With the tweaked cast/setting and its use of high contrast blacks/shadows, it kind of reminds me of Spider-Man Unlimited.

The only part about it I really dislike is the theme song. Something about it seems stale and derivative.

Guys, Nickelodeon does this with every one of their new shows. Loud House, Harvey Beaks, even Pig Goat Banana Cricket. It’s part of their SpongeBob Standard: a show automatically gets two seasons to get as popular as the Sponge. It’s stupid, yes, but that’s the policy.

This show could just as easily go for its first season on Nickelodeon and then have its second season dumped on Nicktoons.

The real test will be whether or not it’s renewed for season 3.

It's probably planned to have a 5 year run. They had the same plan for the 2012 series before they even knew it would have a hit.

^ This.

We probably won't know how well the show is really doing until about late 2019 / early 2020. I'm wondering how the toys are going to be selling for this thing.

Not that I was hoping this show got canned after the first season or anything, but this being on the air at the same time they're rebooting the film franchise kind of limits what they'll do in the movie. I can't think of any examples where a kiddy show gets a mature audience movie made while the bright and shiny kid show is still on the air.

I mean, I guess you could argue the first Turtles movie did that, but that wasn't exactly a fair representation of the Mirage tone, either.

Hate to say it, but I'm suspecting it won't take long for it to be primarily 'dumped' on Nicktoons the way 2012 was. Getting a premier on the main channel, then all repeats are Nicktoons only. Or, if it's unlucky, losing the main channel premier all together.

Already with this first ep that was on tv, it repeated just once, the next morning, on regular Nick, then a ton of other listed repeats for it were almost all on Nicktoons; in addition to being on Nick2 once or twice.

Brand new show that needs and wants to get the hype up, and it showed on the reg Nick channel just twice. I mean, what? Okay, sure, it's not that big of a deal for people who have all those Nick channels, but not everyone does and lets face it... getting thrown on one of their other channels is sorta-kinda second class in a way. (And no, Cubed, not everyone can watch it via Nick.com since they feel the need to lock them for some reason. And some people prefer to watch tv airings anyhow.)

I was wondering about that earlier ... but my only initial thought of something like that happening is Batman: Brave and the Bold which debuted in the fall of 2008 during the height of the Nolan Batman popularity.

They likely want the TMNT brand to continue rather than spend years with it dormant.

I’m glad they don’t put tmnt on hiatus/limbo. I need my constant tmnt fix, and they’re feeding us well. Thank God.

It's too early to say "how the show is doing" A lot of shows do this simply for PR reasons.

Say folks who were saying "Screw this show, I hate change, I'm not watching this crap, I hope it gets cancelled etc..." Read an article saying "Oh wow look, it already got green lit for a second season after only just premiering a few weeks ago? Well... maybe it actually is good and I should at least try to watch it." Hence they get more viewers merely by publicizing that they are green lit for season 2. I guarantee they were already planning to do at least 2-5 seasons ANYWAY. It's all about bringing in more viewers.... aka pretty sneaky sis...

Yep. It's like how it's a norm to announce a show a hit right after it's first episode. They already intended on a second season no matter what.
