The first full trailer for Paramount+'s 2D animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem spin-off series, Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is now online, and it brings us up to speed with the fun-loving Heroes in a Half-Shell following the events of the critically-acclaimed movie.

The teaser reveals that Leo, Mikey, Raph and Donnie will actually be flying solo at the start of the series, and we will likely follow them on individual adventures before they regroup to face off against a new villain who goes by the name of Bishop.

Based on the moniker, there's a good chance this is a new take on Earth Protection Force Agent John Bishop, who debuted in the 2003 animated series.

We still know very little about this show, but it is expected to be set between the events of Mutant Mayhem and the planned sequel, which means there's a decent possibility we'll be following the boys as they attempt to adapt to life outside the sewer.

At the end of Mutant Mayhem, the Fearsome Foursome save the city from Superfly and are accepted into "normal" society, ditching their signature bandanas and enrolling in April O'Neil's high school.

The trailers suggest that we will also follow the team as they return to the streets as shadowy vigilantes, but we wouldn't be surprised if this latest TMNT show went a slightly different route than fans have been used to seeing in earlier adventures.

Will the Shredder appear, perhaps? The Turtles' lethal nemesis did show up at the end of Mutant Mayhem, but we'd say the character will most likely be saved for the big-screen follow-up.

Check out the teaser below along with a poster, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

“After years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts. Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.”

Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu and Brady Noon will voice the roles of Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael, respectively. The cast also includes Jackie Chan as Splinter, Hannibal Buress as Genghis Frog, Rose Byrne as Leatherhead, Ice Cube as Superfly, Natasia Demetriou as Wingnut, Ayo Edebiri as April O’Neil, Giancarlo Esposito as Baxter Stockman, Post Malone as Ray Fillet, Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, and Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom.

Jeff Rowe (The Mitchells vs. the Machines) directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, which is produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

@harryba11zack - you're a previs.

I've seen you're search history, you dirty previs!
harryba11zack - 6/11/2024, 7:01 AM
@ObserverIO - ? (previs) artists help to plan out what a film is going to look like. Previs is the process of visualising a scene before creating it. Previs generally takes the form of a 3D animatics, namely a rough version of a scene or scenes. Previs artists usually start with a 2D storyboard from a concept artist.

@harryba11zack - Yeah keep telling yourself that. Dirty little previs.

Alright, a new take on Bishop, wonder who else from TMNT Lore could show up?
Th3Batman - 6/11/2024, 6:57 AM
I miss the 2003 version so much, the first 5 seasons of course.
ObserverIO - 6/11/2024, 6:58 AM
In more exciting TMNT news, Tom Waltz, writer of The Last Ronin said he like most TMNT fans would like to see Judith Hoag come back for the movie. From your lips to gods ears, Tom.

@grouch - A little envy mixed with a lot of spite.
Matchesz - 6/11/2024, 7:11 AM
@grouch - it’s like an inside racist joke in Hollywood. Rearrange the word “ginger” and what does it spell.
Chaos200 - 6/11/2024, 7:20 AM
@Matchesz - I've always [frick]ing thought this and it's worryingly becoming less and less of a conspiracy with every new ginger they add to the raceswap roster and it's always to a black person specifically.
ProudPatriot76 - 6/11/2024, 9:06 AM
@grouch - you’re not wrong

@HashTagSwagg - Matt Murdock should be on the list
Origame - 6/11/2024, 7:03 AM
Ok, bare minimum the character models look so much better hand drawn than they do as 3d models like they did in the movie. I really don't get the logic of making the humans look uglier than the mutants.

And before you say that's how the original comics were, no they weren't. The humans actually looked like humans in those comics.

Matchesz - 6/11/2024, 7:39 AM
@Origame - people argue April was black in those comics but in that pic and others shes obviously puerto rican
Origame - 6/11/2024, 8:25 AM
@Matchesz - honestly it's pretty clear she wasn't black. They specifically mention she was modeled after one of their girlfriends and you can see she ain't black.
CorndogBurglar - 6/11/2024, 9:07 AM
@Matchesz - April was 100% not black in the original comics. People that say she was don't know what they are talking about.
zeon00 - 6/11/2024, 10:31 AM
@Origame - people are just too used seeing the 80s TNMT cartoon
Batmangina - 6/11/2024, 7:05 AM
I'm glad the mass market TMNT was slightly after my time and IDGAF about the indy comic as a teenager or else I'd be upset at what this dog's breakfast looks like.

MarkCassidy - 6/11/2024, 7:15 AM
I really liked Mutant Mayhem, but this animation... ehhh. Still give it a go.
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 7:22 AM
Definitely seems to be a female iteration of Bishop given she has this whole anti-mutant agenda which is pretty consistent with the 2003 version of the character atleast.

Also just to clarify , John Bishop was introduced as a minor role in a Tales of the TMNT comic back in the day that they heavily reimagined for the show and since then has had a version appear in the IDW comics & 2012 show aswell

Anyway , this looks fun imo so I’ll check it out as someone who liked Mutant Mayhem!!.

I know some might have issues with the animation but I like how it looks like drawing or sketches from a comic or notepad imo.

Goddamn, I thought this had been out for like 2 months?
Odekahn - 6/11/2024, 8:20 AM
Didn’t watch the movie, won’t watch this. LOL @ fat black April. No matter how much they wish they could, can’t take the originals (including the GOAT 1st movie) away from us 😏
clintthahamster - 6/11/2024, 10:05 AM
@Odekahn - can’t take the originals (including the GOAT 1st movie) away from us

It's a good thing that literally no one is trying to do that. I am grateful we've gotten back around to how much y'all hate to see fat black women on TV, though. It's truly Spring again!
Odekahn - 6/11/2024, 12:01 PM
@clintthahamster - don’t hate to see fat black women on tv. Hate to see white characters turned into fat black women. If it was a new character I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
clintthahamster - 6/11/2024, 12:31 PM
@Odekahn - So, like, if April was originally ethnically ambiguous with kinky brown hair in the comics, and then they changed her to a pale redhead for the cartoon, that would piss you off just as much?
Odekahn - 6/11/2024, 1:42 PM

clintthahamster - 6/11/2024, 2:22 PM
@Odekahn - @Odekahn - The point is that her appearance has been fluid depending on the artist that drew it, but even if she'd always been the lily white redhead that y'all have fetishized, I just don't give a shit whether her being black now makes you mad. It has zero impact on the story, zero impact on the character, and only seems to matter to old white dudes who are mad that she's "not as sexy as she used to be," which is a weird thing to be worried about in a children's cartoon.

But I'd encourage you to stay mad and obsessed with racial purity. It makes you seem cool.
Odekahn - 6/11/2024, 2:31 PM
@clintthahamster -

1. She was always white, backed by decades of toys, movies, shows and comics.

2. Stop projecting fetishes on me. I never said anything about needing her to be “sexy”.

3. It does change things because her identity was always white.

4. Obsessed with racial purity? Wtf? Because I don’t like race swapping I’m suddenly a white supremacy supporter? As I said, I would be fine if it was a new character who was black. You don’t see me complaining about Baxter Stockman.

5. “I just don't give a shit whether her being black now makes you mad.” And I dgaf if you give a shit or not. 🤷🏻
