YTV Canada *NOT* Airing 'Rise of the TMNT' Series Finale

YTV has announced on its official website, ytv.com that the Canadian children's channel is airing the series finale of Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The news confirms rumors that the series, Nickelodeon's current iteration for the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be coming to an end.

*UPDATE* - It appears that YTV is no where near airing the series finale of Rise of the TMNT, despite what the website says! Apologies for the confusion.

The promo on the YTV website mentions that the series finale would be airing on "Sunday at 7pm E/P!", however, the YTV schedule doesn't have it listed for either Sunday, March 29 or Sunday, March 23.

The news follows speculation that Nickelodeon is set to announce a new TMNT series later this year.

Nickelodeon is also currently in production of a new Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated movie for Netflix.

The news also follows Nickelodeon pulling Rise of the TMNT from the schedules of many Nickelodeon channels globally last month.

Just before the pulling of Rise of the TMNT from schedules, Nick USA pushed new episodes to Nicktoons, which is unfortunately never a good sign for a show.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the characters in a fresh new way, featuring jagged-shelled Raphael as a snapping turtle, wielding twin tonfas as his weapons; Leonardo as a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword; Donatello as a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff; and Michelangelo as a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker and Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter. WWE Superstar John Cena (Playing with Fire, The Substitute, Kids' Choice Awards, ) lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.
