Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in business
Paramount recently rebooted TMNT starring Megan Fox in 2014 with the flick bringing in over $485 million worldwide, with its sequel in 2016, Out of the Shadows, not doing as well with a $245.6 worldwide gross, but obviously Paramount still sees worth in the franchise as not only is a new movie in development but a new animated series from Seth Rogen is in development at Nickelodeon for 2023.
Rogen recently announced the August 11, 2023 premiere date for the new TMNT animated series by teasing a page from Donatello’s notebook.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles started off as a comic book in 1984 and became a household name in 1987 with the animated series that featured Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo as mutated ninja turtles trained by Splinter the rat where they faced the evil Shredder, his minions Bebop and Rocksteady, and the alien known as Krang.
