Nickelodeon Launches Season Two of the Hit Animated Series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Sep 26 13
Nickelodeon launched season two of the hit animated series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Saturday, Oct. 12, at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT), continuing the crime-fighting adventures of the four mutant turtles--Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. The season one finale ranked as the number-one telecast for the day across all TV with boys (August 8, 8-9:00 p.m. ET/PT). The half-hour weekly series is layered with comedy, action and sci-fi, and the unique CG animation draws inspiration from both American and Japanese animation, showcasing a stylistic effect of a printed comic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles airs regularly on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The executive producers for season two are Ciro Nieli and Peter Hastings. Season two starts off with a bang in the premiere episode, "The Mutation Situation." In the episode, the Turtles discover that the alien Kraang survived their previous showdown and now have dropped mutagen canisters all over NYC. Throughout the season, the Turtles' mission is to recover the canisters before more mutants can be created. Meanwhile, the Kraang and Shredder have united to put an end to the Turtles once and for all, which results in some very scary characters coming after the brothers. With Casey Jones' help, the Turtles take on some of the most bizarre and dangerous villains they have ever seen, all the while trying to unravel the mystery regarding April O'Neil and her importance to the Kraang. Season two stars Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as Donatello, Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as Michelangelo, Jason Biggs (Orange is the New Black) as Leonardo, Mae Whitman (Parenthood) as April O'Neil, Hoon Lee (Royal Pains) as Master Splinter and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as Shredder. Joining the cast will be Josh Peck (Drake & Josh) as Casey Jones, and Corey Feldman (The Goonies) reoccurs as Slash. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol.3 will be available on iTunes with a free re-cap of season one starting October 7. All new episodes will be available for purchase on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, PlayStation Store, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub, and also for streaming on the Nick App day after air. Fans can also visit Nick.com and the Nick App for exciting teaser clips, music videos and mash ups, and compilation videos showcasing the best butt-kicking moments of the series. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on four mutant turtles--Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo--trained in the art of ninjutsu by their mutant rat sensei, Master Splinter, who teaches the turtles to battle evil from the New York City sewers. Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered Sept. 29, 2012 and was an instant hit, drawing almost 12 million viewers during its premiere weekend. Funnier and with more ninjutsu than ever before, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles explores the companionship of four teenage brothers learning to rely on themselves and one another as they unravel the mystery of their existence and grow to become the heroes in a half-shell that they are destined to be.
