With only a few days to go until our favourite heroes in a half-shell return in animated blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the hype is very real for co-producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s years in the making reboot. But before the pizza-loving reptilians have even hit the big screen, it appears that a movie sequel and a two-season Paramount+ TV series are already on their way.
Details are understandably under wraps for the Mutant Mayhem sequel, save for the fact co-directors Jeff Rowe and Kyle Spears will remain at the helm, but we know a little more about the series. As reported by THR, it will be titled Tales Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the planned two season run of episodes follows Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michaelangelo as they go it alone for the first time. Teaming up with old allies and facing new threats, the show gives fans a chance to get beneath the shell of their heroes to see what the brothers are really made of when they’re apart. The series is to be produced by Point Grey Pictures, with Chris Yost and Alan Wan as executive producers and showrunners.
Talking on the Turtles’ future on Tuesday, Ramsey Naito, president of Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation, said the following; “Reinvigorating this franchise has been years in the making, and we are thrilled to continue expanding the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe and bring new adventures to families and fans.” With Mutant Mayhem out on 31 July and the promise of more Turtle-y awesome adventures ahead, all that’s left to say is: cowabunga!
