as much as i'm not a fan of this incarnation, I DO remember Mr.Producer saying he had a story to tell in at least FOUR seasons. I don't remember five being the magical number, but i could be wrong.

although,

If Viacom really wanted a sillier, goofier approach, maybe they agreed to give this show a five season run just to get things started, and tHAT is why this new show is launching so fast?

No, I distinctly remember Ciro saying in an interview that he wanted to tell the story in at least five seasons and he has had just that.

Yep. Ciro said five seasons in this interview (when season 2 was about to end on Nickelodeon)

TOONZONE NEWS: Season two is racing towards its dramatic conclusion, season three is soon to start and a fourth season has been confirmed. You’ve said before that ideally you see this version of the Turtles as a five season story. Would you be interested in taking the story beyond that point?

CIRO NIELI: I think if we went beyond five with the broad steps that I’ve planned, we’d have to definitely do some reconfiguring. I’m definitely not opposed if we keep going but we’d need to go back a certain amount on our promise story-wise. I wouldn’t turn it down but it’s kind of a nice package the way we have it in five right now.

In that case, I'm glad its ending after five seasons because it looks like it wouldn't end on a strong note if it continued.

Even the episode End Times felt like a very strong end to the show so I think the last episode will be the best ending any tmnt show has gotten.

Yep, agreed.

I also feel like the half shell heroes line of toys and animated special was a test to see how well something like that would sell.there would be no reason to make them 2D either when you already have 3D models ready and waiting and cost effective.

I think the special was to see how well a show like what we have now, but in 2D would sell. and the shorts would be how well something a bit more comedy oriented might do.

I sit corrected.


And I think that even stretching it out to five seasons stretched this story out way too thin. it could have worked easily in 3.

TMNT is a franchise that has endless story possibilities, as seen with all the different series. It could go on a long time without them running out of things to do.

Yes, but as we saw with the 4Kids series, things took a turn during Fast Forward and Back to the Sewers and many fans weren't happy with those directions. I think Ciro felt he wanted to end it on his own terms and he's getting his wish which I think is fine. Better to let it end on his terms than for them to continue it and have the network push it in a direction of their own making.
