TMNT Season Three Predictions

by Zach Gasior

With season two now wrapped and the stakes higher than ever, Nickelodeon is ready to continue the TMNT train right along and begin season three immediately.  So what’s in store for the heroes in green now that their city and home are in ruins, their master is missing, and their brother is injured?  We can’t say for sure what the next 26 episodes will hold in store, but we can certainly make some educated guesses.  So let’s see what we can glean from the information that’s already been revealed.


In the preview for season three, there were a few pieces of information that didn’t make much sense at the time, but are now clearly understandable.  First, it was said that the turtles flee New York City for some reason.  Well, now we know why.  With the invasion underway, and the rest of the world not likely to fair any better (although we still don’t know what the Earth Protection Force is, or what its prominence will be in the coming season), it’ll be up to the turtles to retake the city somehow.


There was also mention of Shredder getting his revenge at the end of season two.  As we know, he didn’t get the kind of revenge he ultimately wants, but he did force the boys to see their master fall in battle, and he injured Leonardoto a point where the others can’t know if he’ll recover completely.  But he didn’t really get any sort of revenge for Karai.  That should mean that there will be a lot more to do with her this season, as we are able to understand her snake form, what its powers are, and whether she even wants to become fully human again.  Since she didn’t make any meaningful appearances after her transformation, there’s certainly a good chance season three will spend significant time on her.  Whether Shredder will get his revenge still … well, we’ll have to wait and see.  Leonardo proved he was now a match for all of Shredder’s henchmen, so the villain may need some new baddies to do his bidding.


Which, of course, leads to the other known news/hopeful predictions.  We already know fan favorites Bebop, Rocksteady, Mondo Gecko, UsagiYojimbo will be making appearances this season, as well as new characters like Napoleon Dyna-Frog.  But will anyone else be making a return?  With so many characters now present, do we even need more old 80s characters making their debuts?  Perhaps the season will instead deal with some of the mutants/characters that already exist.  Donatello did create a retro-mutagen that worked.  If he can return the city to normal, perhaps some of the other mutants can be returned to normal, opening the way for others (it would still be great if Mondo Gecko and Napoleon Dyna-Frog were just the beginnings for the Mighty Mutanimals and the Punk Frogs, respectively).


Characters, plot, and developments are always fun to think about, but what happens with the characters that we already have?  Given what happened in the finale, it’s likely that season three will be the end of the AprilDonatelloCasey love triangle.  If she hasn’t made her choice already, then it certainly seems like it’scoming soon.  The one thing that would be nice to see is something new with the Kraang.  For two seasons, they’ve been doing the same thing.  What’s left for them?  Either season three should end their story (for a while, at least), or the writers need to come up with something very creative and interesting for them to be doing instead.  It would also be interesting if the turtles could have noticeable alterations in their personalities because of what happens.  Mikey could grow up a little more; Raph could be calmer and gentler with his family; Leo could be more of a hardened warrior; and Donnie could be recovering from his heartbreak.


Whatever happens in the coming season, it’ll be one heck of an adventure.  With the new episodes right around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before we see just what’s going to happen with our favorite heroes.  Until then, we can just wait and keep our fingers crossed.

I felt this season 2 left me flat. I really didn’t like how some things played out. Like they spent part of the season getting Kirby back to human and I turn my head for a second and he turns mutant and April doesn’t care? She gives Don the cold sholder but this… let’s go to the 1990 movie (comic book series setting)farm house! Irma? What a let down, and Gilbert slash Iago is no great choice! Then beating up Leo while Shedder watches. And just how did Donatello get Mutagen man back? I got confused. So many loopholes. I was getting serious, now I don’t know what to expect. We shall see.

I think that the end of season 2 was amazing. I watched the last 2 episodes on YouTube, and was really shocked about Irma being a kraang. Also, I wonder what happens to Karai. I saw the episode where she got mutated, and I am confused as to whether she’s good or bad now. Does anyone have an answer?

BEJG October 14, 2014 - 11:20 pm

I personally think Karai is staying out of the way as much as possible, probably because the whole Karai=Miwa thing is driving her nuts. I mean, if you happened to find out the father that youve knnown all you life isnt your real father and your real one is his enemy, how would you react? And dont think its an easy choice to pick a side. Both of her fathers love her, and she loves them back. (Splinter is different story though, because shes not used to his way of thinking, though shes determined to be a good person so Splinter will be proud of her.) Probably she won’t lplay a huge role in an episode untill the writers figure something out, but because she hasnt popped up and greatly affected the episode, i think its safe to say shes busy trying to sort her life out right now and is netraul. Does this make sense?

@Martha They got Mutagen man back after beating him when he was going after April they were able to freeze him. I don’t think April didn’t care that her father was mutated again their wasn’t anything she could do everything was out of control with the invasion going on their main course was escaping. Season finally and rest of it was just great in my eyes watching it all with my boys brings back those memories of Saturday morning cartoons and so thrilled new episodes start Friday don’t have to wait.

Did anyone see the Triceraton image on the newspaper? Could this be a spoiler??? It was shown at approximately the 40 minute mark after Krang robot was shot down.

newsball October 2, 2014 - 5:10 pm

well with the epf, it could also mean the intrdouction of bishop, but also likely dr. honeycutt, aka the fugitoid

Ian Manning October 2, 2014 - 10:12 pm

I’d actually like to see the Turtles meet Sonic, Sally, Tails, and the other Freedom Fighters from the old Sonic SATAM cartoon and comics.

I remember when this website predicted they would go to japan this season.
They go live in the woods in almost all version so yeah this website is amateurish and doesn’t know what it’s talking about.
You can tell whoever writes these articles is just plain dumb

I really hope the reference to Earth Protection Force means that Agent bishop is going to be introduced. His character was so awesome in the 2k3 series.

I just thought it was supposed to be a reason for those skeptics that ask, “how haven’t the police or someone gotton involed with this?”.

Maria Oviedo October 7, 2014 - 7:19 pm

The only think that I beg for this next season it’s this: that there’s a real Irma in caged by the Kraang. The plot twist of her being a Kraang spy was horrible!

Tanner Lietz October 12, 2014 - 10:47 pm

what is that giant mutant eyeball thing in the picture above

BEJG October 14, 2014 - 11:21 pm

Mushroom Man the leader of the Mushrooms idk what they are callled.

ProdigyScar October 15, 2014 - 3:14 pm

Fungus Humungous from the episode of the same name. (:

MariaF October 15, 2014 - 5:50 am

I’ll get straight to the point – BRING MONA LISA BACK!!! Countless fans demand it and would absolutely LOVE to see her again! Proof is all over internet.

That is all 🙂

ProdigyScar October 15, 2014 - 3:11 pm

I think once the Kraang are defeated, a new version of Lord Dregg should take their place in season 4. Also, even though he is one of my favorite characters I think Splinter should be killed by Shredder so it makes it more personal between Shredder and the Turtles.

LeoLeader October 28, 2014 - 12:42 am

Whoever writes these articles are most likely NOT getting their info from a completely reliable source. One of these articles mentioned April getting kidnapped by the Karan’s, but they don’t even know where the turtles are! As for Mikey growing up more, it ALREADY STARTED HAPPENING, in case you haven’t noticed. Raph being soft, and Leo being cold? If you’ve started watching the season 3 episodes, that is definitely incorrect. As for Donnie’s love life, if you watched A Foot Too Big, it’s pretty obvious that that situation hasn’t been decided yet.
