The two networks will begin airing “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” in spring 2013.
Following a successful series launch Sept. 29, Nickelodeon has ordered 26 additional episodes of the series. The series premiered on Oct. 1 in the U.K. and is rolling out across Nickelodeon channels around the world between now and December 2013.
The re-introduction of this popular franchise also includes an extensive consumer products program anchored by a new toy line from long-standing Turtles partner Playmates Toys.

Additional pre-sales for the series include TVI/Televisão Independente (Portugal), RTL Klub (Hungary), Rádio e Televisão Bandeirantes (Brazil), S&E Media Project/STB QTV (Ukraine), ABS-CBN (Philippines) and Televisora Nicaraguaense (Nicuragua).
