Raph, Leo, Donnie and Mikey emerge from the sewers and tap into undiscovered ninja powers in Nickelodeon's reimagined, 2D-animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which made its world debut on Monday 17th September 2018 on Nickelodeon USA. The action-comedy series follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. Following its US launch, the series has been rolling out globally across Nickelodeon's channels and branded blocks in 170+ countries and territories.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows the Turtles on all-new adventures as they master new powers, encounter absurd mutants and battle bizarre villains, each with their own motivations. Ranging from mystics, mutants and madmen, new creatures and villains emerge to take on Raph, Leo, Donnie and Mikey in battles across New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the brothers learn to work together and navigate the perils of New York City and the hidden realms below in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.

In the half-hour launch episode, "Mystic Mayhem," the Turtles discover for the first time that they're not the weirdest things in New York.
