There’s just no stopping our heroes in a half shell. Shortly after the initial success of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, it was announced that they would be picking the show up for a second season. A few months later, the news broke that they would be giving the show a third season as well. If this latest rumor is true, it would appear that the series is going to be picked up once more for a fourth season. Needless to say, this is great news for the fans and for the franchise over all, as this latest animated series has almost single-handedly revitalized the Ninja Turtles.
Although there has been no official announcement about this particular subject, we received information from a reliable source within the industry which hinted at Nickelodeon’s plans for next year and beyond. It was clear just from this source that there were plans to continue the story, as they hinted at a major cliffhanger at the end of the third season. Whether or not this information is entirely accurate remains to be seen, but given where it came from, I’m tempted to believe that it is true. I’m sure they won’t announce it any time soon, but the fans will be happy to know that they’ve got a lot more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming to them.
As one of the most popular shows on the network, it would actually be hard to believe that Nickelodeon didn’t have any plans to renew the series. That being said, I must reiterate that this is not concrete and we cannot entirely confirm that TMNT has been renewed. We’re still in the early days of this whole process, so it’s important to understand that anything could happen and even a reliable source could end up being wrong in the end.
Now then, let’s get back to the present, as 2014 holds many interesting prospects for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise. Perhaps the biggest and most controversial subject in the Shellhead community, the new movie from producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman is set to hit the streets later this summer. We’ve seen pictures of the new turtle designs and even some pictures of the toy line based on the film, but we haven’t seen anything quite like this.
Brought to us via i09, the following images give us a closer look at the new toys based on Michael Bay’s TMNT movie. Yes, we have seen these before, but this is the first time that we’ve received close, detailed shots of both the front and the back of these action figures. Needless to say, their molds definitely look well crafted. Whether or not they are entirely accurate to the film remains to be seen, but they definitely have a lot of detail. Of course, detailed or not, it kind of looks as if Donny’s legs are about to buckle under the weight of all that cool tech gear.
