Ahead of Season 3’s debut this fall, Nickelodeon has picked up a fourth season of the CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a 20-episode order. It’s slated to premiere in fall 2015. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a global hit, maintaining impressive numbers across the network’s ratings and our digital and consumer products platforms,” said Russell Hicks, President of Content Development and Production at Nickelodeon. “While new episodes will continue to debut on Nickelodeon, we look forward to propelling the momentum with a fourth season for our loyal fans.”
Season 3 will kick off with Robot Chicken’s Seth Green joining the voice cast alongside Sean Astin, Rob Paulsen, Greg Cipes, Mae Whitman, Hoon Lee, and Kevin Michael Richardson, Josh Peck and Corey Feldman. Ciro Nieli is exec producer.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ranked among the top five animated series for first quarter across all of television, according to Nickelodeon. And Paramount Pictures will release Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — a live-action film featuring Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo and starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett — on May 8.
