Because people want stuff to end on even numbers, milestones or a lot of episodes.

NNNGGGGGGG!!!!! that would royally suck!
hopefully some bigwig doesn't decided to mess with my comics!!!!!

back to the cartoon show, i think if the Nick series is profitable enough, it'd stick around even after 5 seasons?

124 is both an even number and a lot of episodes.

Someday, somewhere, a show will end with 666 episodes.

And it will destroy us all.

I hope they get someone with a clearer vision on what they want the show to be. i'm not even really sure what this 'story' is they are trying to tell. i don't think they know either.

These 4 new episodes then super long breaks don't help it either.


I personally can't wait to see this show end, and something with a little more substance begin. The 4 kids series spoiled me as to what we could get if done right.

If you want to go all dark, go all dark with a little humor. it worked for B:TAS, it could work for tmnt. Personally, I think it's time for something like that, more in vein of the first tmnt movie.

But it needs to focus on just Shredder, the Turtles and the foot. Forget Krang, forget the 80s FW series. add in a few elements of the 4kids series this time around.

.
The same thing any other TMNT series story is trying to "tell." Aside from Shredder being the main villain, the Turtles just go on lots of adventures fighting other human enemies, mutants or aliens.

Same as any other Turtle series over the last 30 years. What story is any other TMNT universe trying to tell? After the Shredder/Foot, its the same thing.

Objection!

4Kids TMNT: the story then became Karai's vengeance against the TMNT (and then Ninja Tribunal, but <Cylons rant against Ninja Tribunal>)

IDW TMNT: The Pantheon's manipulation of the Foot Clan, General Krang, mutants, EVERYONE

There has been and can be overarching story to TMNT shows/comics.

Yes, but TMNT is mostly slice of life after they get away from the Shredder/Foot stories.

Only in Mirage/Image. Fred Wolf... well, that was what it was. "Mutant/mobster/scientist of the week" stuff.

4Kids, overarching stories.

Nick, overarching stories.

Archie... all that Null, Maligna, Turnstone stuff.

There we go. The biggest versions, and only Mirage/Image have ever really done "slice of life."

Which is a shame, because arguably the best parts of the 2007 movie were the slice-of-life parts.

Given Usagi is now confirmed to appear in TMNT, but Greg Cripes confirmed all 124 episodes up to the end of Season 5 have already been finished voice actor wise....is this our first confirmation of Season 6?

If they just recently signed a deal for Usagi and Season 5 is already done, this sort of hints Usagi will appear in the Season 6 opener.

Looks like the show is very likely continuing after all.

Probably not. The Usagi deal was obviously inked a long time ago if there was promo art for it over the summer.

But Season 5's scripts would have already been in pre-production prior. They wouldn't bother to script an Usagi episode before they knew they could use him.

I mean they said they finished the voice acting for all 124 episodes already, and Season 5 won't even finish airing on TV till the end of 2017. Look at how far ahead they are in production.

Nah, I think it's just being confirmed/promoted now.

Maybe, but it seems weird to just announce this now if Usagi was already confirmed months ago.

I just want confirmation of a Season 6...
