Sequel Already Greenlit For TMNT Mutant Mayhem


Everyone is eagerly anticipating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the return of the ninjas who are turtles to the big screen in a fresh new form. The film is expected to be a hit for Paramount and Nickelodeon, enough so that they’ve gone ahead and approved a sequel for production.

According to Variety, director Jeff Rowe will return to helm this untitled continuation while Seth Rogen and Even Goldberg will continue to watch from their production company Point Grey. The sequel has no titles or plot description, but we assume any such thing, if it exists, would just be a spoiler this early.

“In the nearly 40 years since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles launched into the zeitgeist, it has entertained generations of fans and only continues to grow,” says Paramount and Nickelodeon boss Brian Robbins. “We are excited to grow TMNT’s legacy in partnership with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg at Point Grey, and Jeff Rowe, who are innovating the franchise with their singular brand of humor and elevated storytelling for audiences everywhere, across virtually every platform.”

And there’s more: if you hadn’t already guessed, the next TMNT animated series will also be set in the continuity of this movie, between Mutant Mayhem and the sequel. All four voice actors from the film (Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr, Nicolas Cantu, Brady Noon) will reprise their roles, but unlike the movie, the series will be done with 2-D animation. Two seasons have been ordered and the show will premiere on Paramount+.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem opens in theaters August 2.
