I wonder who they hired.

Hopefully, they hired someone who could mimic Suriano's art-style.

Well... does it? Since we've already seen some of the character designs that the new hire in question may have been a part of.

Literally all animators they hire match whatever the current art style is. This has been the case for any cartoon in existance for 40+ years.

The designs are done by the new directors/showrunners. Those are finalized. Animators are then hired for the background characters like pedestrians, to draw the locations, etc.

How the hell would they change the main designs of the Turtles when those come from the new director/showrunners? Those are decided before the show is even put into production.

The only ones who know the role this person has played and what characters they've had a hand in (be it big or minor) is that person who got hired and the people they report to.

A character designer, as stated by the job ad, is also not the same as an animator...
