The announcement was made today by Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ranked as one of the top five animated series for first quarter across all of television, and in consumer products is a retail success around the world. New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episodes currently air on Nickelodeon, with season three to debut this fall, and season four slated for fall 2015.

"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a global hit, maintaining impressive numbers across the network's ratings and our digital and consumer products platforms," said Hicks. "While new episodes will continue to debut on Nickelodeon, we look forward to propelling the momentum with a fourth season for our loyal fans."

On August 8, Paramount Pictures will release Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a live-action film starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, written by Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec and Evan Daugherty, and produced by Michael Bay.

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered Sept. 29, 2012, and was an immediate ratings win, drawing almost 12 million viewers during its premiere weekend.
