Confirmed majetes: TMNT 2012 will end later this year with season 5
The kid network will be rebooting its current CG “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series as a 2D animated series with the title “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”
26 episodes of the 2D reboot to air starting in fall 2018.
“The Turtles is a property that has reinvention in its DNA, which keeps it fresh and relevant to every new generation while satisfying the demand from its adult fans,” said Cyma Zarghami, president, Nickelodeon Group. “’Turtles’ has been an incredibly important franchise for us since we reignited it five years ago, and we’re excited for the new series to take the characters in a different direction with more humor, a younger and lighter feel and all-new dimensions to explore.”
The new 2D series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer for the critically acclaimed Adult Swim series “Samurai Jack”) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, current “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.
Everyone was firing on all cylinders for this one. Rie boarded that heartbreaking opening scene on TOP of her directing duties. Mira killed it with that beautiful scene at the river. I love Sarah’s somber hospital scene and her kick-ass forest assault on Shredder’s complex. CT’s Baxter scene was both hilarious and weird. And damn, Adam’s final battle on the burning rooftop was just breathtaking; so raw and intense, it felt like a brawl 4 years in the making!
And overseeing it all were Ciro and Brandon, who guided us with a hardcore and specific vision of what this finale needed to be.
Episodes like this remind you that you’re working with some of the best damn talent in the industry. It’s humbling to work alongside them.
