  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem
    is a reboot of the franchise, with a unique CGI style and a youthful feel brought by teenage actors voicing the iconic turtles.

    has been confirmed, and will debut on October 9, 2026.
  • The ending of

    sets up both a sequel and a wider franchise, with Paramount’s vision for the renewed
    universe already taking shape.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem revitalized the iconic franchise, and TMNT Mutant Mayhem 2 is already on the way. Mutant Mayhem, released in 2023, follows the familiar turtles as they make their big debut in New York City with the help of a human named April O’Neil. However, their start as the city’s secret crime-fighting forces gets off to a rocky start when an army of mutants attacks. Paramount has given Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael the modern refresh they deserve, taking various elements that make the various TMNT properties so popular.

Once again in CGI form, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is based on a TMNT screenplay co-written by actor Seth Rogen, a self-proclaimed fan of the property. TMNT Mutant Mayhem’s soundtrack is even scored by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who are Academy Award-winning composers. Most interestingly, the turtles are voiced by teenage actors who are complete unknowns, which makes the TMNT movie feel youthful, something that the previous films lacked. The movie is the start of a new series for TMNT too, so questions about the Ninja Turtle’s future in Mutant Mayhem 2 are already arising.

The Turtles Are All Returning In The Sequel

Along with the movie’s release date, it was also confirmed that the titular Turtles would return en masse for the sequel, along with their original voice actors. This means Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu, and Brady Noon, who play Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael, respectively, will all be back. It’s also safe to assume that Jackie Chan’s TMNT character, the overprotective mutant rat Splinter, will return in the TMNT Mutant Mayhem 2 cast.

Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem ending, Cynthia will have a much bigger role in the sequel too. Shredder joining the TMNT: Mutant Mayhem 2 cast is all but confirmed, but who will play the villain is anyone’s guess.

What Happens Next For The Turtles?

A lot of the TMNT Mutant Mayhem 2 story is obvious, though there are a few gaps. The sequel’s villain will likely be Shredder, who will work closely with Cynthia and the TCRI to capture the Ninja Turtles. However, Shredder’s motivation for working with the TCRI still isn’t clear. Shredder’s motivation could just be power and money, but it could be something more personal given that he and Splinter have history. TMNT: Mutant Mayhem 2 will likely also cast a light on the truth about Cynthia’s identity and what her ultimate goal is.

The new TMNT TV show on Paramount+ is specifically designed to fill in the gaps between the movies, and the events of the series will inform the plot of Mutant Mayhem 2. The new series will see the Turtles hone their skills as crime fighters so that they can enter into the sequel will a bit more skill and preparedness to take on an even bigger threat.
