Season 5 had a very good format of splitting things down into arcs. I imagine if the show got another season they would have continued doing that.

Quote:
'm watching season 5 in this week in random order, I have now only the Monsters-arc left. I have to say, this is clearly my favourite season of this series, and perhaps my favourite season of any TMNT-series at all.

There is a deep love for the franchise in it - and for us fans too. I think the series wanted to say goodbye with something special for the fans - and they succeded. If I think at the 2k3-series, the first 3 seasons were great, 4 & 5 was mixed and the last two were dull for me.
2k3 Season 4 was really great, it had a slow start in the first 4ish eps in Northampton but it picked up. I like it almost as much as Season 3. Ninja Tribunal was a great arc that mixed TMNT lore with magic and powers, I just wish they left out the human acolytes. Fast Forwards greatest strength was its mass of new villains, aside from the awful Triple Threat, all the others were great.

I'm still reeling from season 5's ending. Emotional sendoff, no. Glorious tribute to the Turtles' imaginations, absolutely. Who doesn't love going rapid fire between Mad Max, horror, and Usagi Yojimbo?

The surprise appearance of Kintaro most of all. Last time I watched a take on that character was Urusei Yatsura, fittingly enough.

According to Rob Paulsen, Nickelodeon's plan for this series was always for it to be five seasons and they got what they wished for.

We pretty much knew that, it's only some trolls who went around saying the show was canceled.

I'm sure the plan for the 2018 show is a 5 year run too. That's the standard length for kids shows.

From what I've read it seems the creators would have carried on with it but yes this was the initial plan and what they hoped to get.

There is an interesting video on TMNT Facebook őpage about the sound design of the Shellraiser in the "Mutant Apocalypse" episodes.

It's not something important but it's something curious: Nickelodeon Spain will also air the Bebop and Rocksteady tale as the last episode of the show, letting the Apocalypse's special episode as the penultimate tale.

It seems not only Nick USA thought about this. I don't know if another countries did this too.

I don't know if the UK are even going to bother with the rest of it at this point but was curious too. I think Nick (head) decides what order we get the eps in but not certain.

Interesting, the show hasn't fully aired in all the UK countries yet?

No.... I was starting to wonder if they would bother. Lucky I have the Crossover anyway.

I know this is a bit late, but I as I was rewatching the show, I had this thought. For those who were saying the final episode can't be canon due to the contradictions between the future shown and what Renet said, consider this. Renet never said she was from Earth's future, just the future. Likewise, she never said they save Earth a bunch of times, but that they save the world, which could refer to any number of things, possibly whatever world she's actually from. Lastly, due to the events of "Earth's Last Stand," there's another set of turtles out in space, who would never experience the destruction of Earth. It's possible that Renet was never referring to our turtles, as she went back in time to before there were two sets. She told our turtles what she told them, not realizing that the turtles who would go on to be legendary were a completely different set of turtles that didn't exist yet. It's possible the other turtles ended up settling on her world due to the people's resemblance to the denizens of Earth. There isn't anything to 100% confirm this theory, but it seems pretty plausible when you take all of the above into account.

Actually Renet does tell them that they saved the world many times. In the moment where she’s telling the Turtles that in the Future where she is from they are well known to the point of being seen as legendary. Donnie then scoffingly asks “Please...you’re saying your from the future, and you’re saying we’re important enough to be in history books? You expect us to believe that?!” Renet then responds by saying “Yes, you saved the world...many times.”

Typically when someone says “the World” they do mean the Earth since this is the only world we have currently. So yes that does mean they did save Earth on numerous occasions.

Though Renet isn’t really from Earth, in most incarnations she’s from she is from the 79th dimension of Null Time which is a world between all time and space.

Nicktoons UK is airing Wanted Bebop and Rocksteady arc first starting on February 3rd, so that means the Future Arc will be aired last here in the UK.

Oh, okay. I'm not sure they care too much about it at the point

This season was a huge mixed bag for me.

The whole, Dracula-vampire arc was dull , yet I liked the Yojimbo arc (who wouldn't?)

I hope that Mutant Apocalypse isn't how the show officially ended, but I think it is cause of the "for Kevin and Peter" sign at the end of it.

Having Mikey get electric powers was pretty cool, and lord Dregg showing up to earth was also a nice touch.

Overall the weakest season of them all, but I guess that's to be expected.

Many people thought Season 5 was one of the best seasons, I don't see why its expected to be the weakest.
