After one last season of the CG animated series, premiering on the network March 19, a new series is scheduled to debut in fall 2018.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be a 2D animated series, perhaps harkening back to the original 1987 cartoon that helped propel the franchise into the cultural zeitgeist.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “take the characters in a different direction with more humor, a younger and lighter feel and all-new dimensions to explore,” said Cyma Zarghami at the presentation.

The synopsis for the series says:
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will follow Leonardo, Raphael, 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 favorite 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.
It will be co-executive produced by Ant Ward of the current series and Andy Suriano, character designer of Adult Swim’s Samurai Jack.
Expect more information about the new Ninja Turtles cartoon over the coming months.
