When it comes to how they schedule their television shows, sometimes it can be nearly impossible to figure out Nickelodeon’s line of reasoning. For some reason, they keep splitting up the seasons of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and taking multiple season breaks. They never really explain why they are taking these breaks, but I’m sure there’s some method behind the madness. Without fail, they always come back within a few months to let the fans know when they can expect to see the next episode of TMNT. This time around, they have officially announced that our heroes in a half shell will be returning to finish off the fourth season on February 5th.
In a fun little tweet the other day, Nickelodeon’s TMNT Twitter account broke the news that we would see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return to television in just three weeks. The tweet featured Seth Green (Leonardo) Rob Paulsen (Donatello) Sean Astin (Raphael) and Greg Cipes (Michelangelo) yelling “Cowabunga!”to all of their fans on Twitter. It’s always nice to see this group together, because they don’t always make a lot of appearances outside of the studio. Most of them have other gigs to worry about, but they all love being turtles!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will return with the 23rd episode of the 4th season. According to IMDb, the episode is entitled Tokka vs. The World, and promises to be a lot of fun for fans of the series. The 24th episode will air the week after on February 12th, and the following weeks will likely bring the final two episodes of the series. Expect Season 5 to start sometime this spring – potentially right after season 4 finishes up.
Unfortunately, we still have yet to receive confirmation about whether or not the fifth season will be the final appearance of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Nickelodeon. It’s still a very real possibility, but something tells me that this would disappoint a lot of fans. As usual, we’ll probably have to wait and see what happens in the future and hope for the best.
