NICKELODEON’S HEROES IN A HALF SHELL RETURN TO BATTLE IN SEASON TWO OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
London – Friday 20th December, 2013 – Nickelodeon launches season two of the hit animated series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, on Saturday 11th January at 9.30am on Nicktoons, continuing the crime-fighting adventures of the four mutant Turtles—Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Nickelodeon star Josh Peck (Drake & Josh) rounds out the cast this season as fan-favourite Casey Jones, a teenage hockey player with a rebellious attitude and a lust for cracking down on bad guys. New episodes will air every Saturday at 9:30am on Nicktoons.
Season two starts off with a bang in the premiere episode, “The Mutation Situation.” The Turtles discover that the alien Kraang survived their previous showdown and now have dropped mutagen canisters all over NYC. Throughout the season, the Turtles’ mission is to recover the canisters before more mutants can be created. Meanwhile, the Kraang and Shredder have united to put an end to the Turtles once and for all which results in some infamous characters coming after the brothers. With the help of Casey Jones, each new episode will see the Turtles take on a new villain, all while trying to unravel the mystery regarding April O’Neil and her importance to the Kraang.
After each episode, viewers can go to turtles.nick.co.uk and find out more about the villain revealed that week. Each new character will then be added to an interactive digital poster of New York City which will be available to download once all of the villains have been revealed.
Season two stars Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as Donatello, Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as Michelangelo, Jason Biggs (Orange is the New Black) as Leonardo, Mae Whitman as April O’Neil, Hoon Lee as Master Splinter and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as Shredder.
