I'm sure this is a question better suited for a different thread but - If this series doesn't perform well, what happens then? Let the franchise rest and in 5 years go back to the drawing board?

I would imagine so, give people a chance to miss it rather than just keep redesigning one after the other.

But if they're jumping, what are they jumping from? And how old may April be in this series?

1987 series (10 year run) -- first TV effort, nation-wide phenomenon

Next Mutation (1 year run) -- people were tired of turtles but they decided to "shake it up" and make unnecessary deviations; nobody cared and it died

[5 year break]

2003 series, Part I (we'll give it the first 5 years...) -- gets back to the basics, probably less of a phenomenon than '87 and '12 but definitely successful

2003 series, Part II AKA Fast Forward (the last 2 years) -- "shake it up" and make unnecessary deviations; the end was near

[2 year break]

2012 series (5 year run) -- get back to basics...a few unnecessary changes but still playing it straight... nationwide phenomenon 2nd only to '87 thus far

2018 series (...) -- "shake it up" and make unnecessary deviations....

Let history be our guide...

It looks to me like the world needs true TMNT in about 5-10 year increments, with about 4-6 year rests in between. Otherwise it suffers from every-other-syndrome. The owners don't like that rest, they want to keep the cash flowing, so they try and feed us more but we aren't hungry again yet...

I personally think they could have kept the 2012 series going a year or two longer, not sure why the rush to shut it down and move on. It kind of had some of its own microcosm of the pattern within itself...redesigning itself a few times for no really good reason except, I guess, to create new toys...but it never got too far off course at once.

Well of course, what else? There will be many more TMNT cartoons in the future after this new one.

It will be interesting to see if Nick falls into any type of pattern with TMNT shows. If Iím counting correctly it will only have been 10 months between ending 2012 and starting Rise. Could we see a new TMNT every five years with only a 10 month break between each series? Or even multiple shows airing at the same time?

We discussed here at this community last year, and it seemed Star Trek had that.

So did folks think it could happen? Or not in a million years type of thing?

I don't think so, because many children often confuse different universes.

Multiple series would be fine though if it was intended for different age groups, and not automatically "for kids," via creating another for an older audience, possibly for another Viacom channel. How I wish.

I'm still disappointed they didn't give Half Shell enough of chance and turn it into a series for the younger set alongside 2012 (or whatever this new one is). Or at least a long series of specials. Shame.

At least, I wanted one sequel. It ended way too interesting.

I think their designs are horrible. Especially, Splinter. I don't want to prejudge this. But their designs just forcing me to think, Rise Of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be more childish and worse than other series. I hope I'm wrong.

In the worst case, it's an "animated Next Mutation of the late-2010's". But I want to be wrong.

i think the designs are one thing.

if they have the right personality, team dynamic, and interesting development. I think it can do well with that.

The comparisons to Samurai Jack, remind of me of how the PD Turtles were compared to The Raid. Not a great start...

If anything, I was hoping it would be more like Sonic Boom (tv series), the games failed but apparently the series was good enough to get another 52 episodes .

People seriously compared the PD Turtles to the raid, I personally don't see the resemblance.

I also think a lot of work needs to be done with Splinter.
