BURBANK, Calif. - June 17, 2014 - As the heroes in a half shell celebrate their 30th anniversary this year, Nickelodeon has picked up a fourth season of the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CG-animated series with a 20-episode order. 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.

Beginning season three, Seth Green (Robot Chicken) will join the voice cast as Leonardo alongside Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as Donatello, Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as Michelangelo, Mae Whitman (Parenthood) as April O'Neil, Hoon Lee (Royal Pains) as Master Splinter and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as Shredder. Josh Peck (Drake & Josh) is Casey Jones, and Corey Feldman (The Goonies) reoccurs as Slash. The series is executive produced by Ciro Nieli.

"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. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a global consumer products powerhouse, winning in every category that has hit the shelves to date. (Source: The NPD Group, Inc., 2013 and 2014).

The first global mobile app based on the series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run launched last June and was number-one among all paid apps in the US and in more than 40 territories around the world. It consistently ranks in the top 10 paid gaming apps on iTunes.

Smoove, Fred Tatasciore, Jon Heder, Robert Englund and Renae Jacobs in new episodes of season two and three. Roseanne Barr will reprise her role as Kraang Prime.
