We may still be a few weeks out from its September premiere, but it seems that Nickelodeon is confident that it has a hit on its hands with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with the network announcing that it has renewed the show for a second season of 26 episodes.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new mutants and battle bizarre creatures all while enjoying their favourite slice of pizza. Tapping into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, the four brothers must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.
Featuring in the voice cast of the series are Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Master Splinter, and John Cena (Daddy’s Home 2) as Baron Draxum.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to premiere on Nickelodeon on Monday, September 17th.
