Brandon Auman Trashes Spoilers For Season Four Finale

Over the past week or two, it has become readily apparent that Nickelodeon may have prematurely aired the fourth season finale in South Korea. With the holiday season attracting an entirely different kind of viewership in the United States, it’s likely that Nick decided to push this episode back simply to avoid conflicting audiences. Alternatively, it’s also entirely possible that they just wanted to stretch season four out as long as they could. Whatever the reasoning was behind this move, one thing is for sure: we weren’t supposed to know anything about their plans for the season finale until February.

As a matter of fact, lead writer Brandon Auman actually took issue with the fact that spoilers for the season four finale are being shared via social media. His advice reveals the frustration that any creator would have after seeing people spoil their work for others, but he may have been a bit too harsh in his assessment of the situation. According to Auman, this is the approach you should take with potential spoilers:

“If you see spoilers on tumblr please don’t share them, pretend tumblr is like that cursed VHS in The Ring. Crap what am I saying, you kids don’t know what VHS or The Ring is. I have no idea who is posting all of this stuff, but now the spoilers are everywhere. Please don’t share.”


Needless to say, it’s a little rude to suggest that anyone on tumblr is too young to remember The Ring or even what a VHS tape looks like. It’s especially unkind to a lot of the younger fans who currently watch Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That being said, it was clearly just a joke, and I’m sure Brandon Auman didn’t mean to offend anyone with this statement. Auman is a pretty good guy and an amazing creator, so it’s hard to be upset with him over his well deserved frustrations.

Sadly, spoilers are already floating all over the internet, and it will be difficult to avoid them until the final episode of season four is finally released in February. Regardless of the difficulty, we should all do our best to keep from spoiling the finale for ourselves. As usual, you can trust that we’ll do our best to keep from spoiling anything for our loyal readers!

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!

    I saw the spoilers on December 30th and I was depressed on New Year’s. I’m still depressed but I don’t wanna watch the Korean version because I wanna understand what they’re saying.
