Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Returns This Friday With 'I, Monster'

The wait is over and the Turtles are back! Find out which classic villain they'll face next.

The mid-season break is over and tomorrow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will return! I know it was such a short break (especially when compared to shows like Breaking Bad), but man, my Saturday mornings just haven't felt complete without this one.

The premiere episode, 'I, Monster,' introduces a classic villain: The Rat King. He'll attempt to take over the city, but the real danger is when he tries to control Master Splinter's mind. The episode will air Friday, Jan. 25 at 7pm (ET/PT). Nickelodeon is dubbing tomorrow "Total Turtle Takeover" and it'll air encore episodes until 9pm.

The show coming back makes even Raphael happy.

The second half of Season 1 will dive deeper into the Kraang's agenda and introduce Karai! Hopefully they're saving Casey Jones for next season!

The show will return to its regular timeslot (Saturdays at 11am) starting Feb. 2.

Damn it that gives me Young Justice, The Clone Wars and this to watch! If the Clone Wars hadn't started getting good I'd ignore it. Now TMNT is back with the possibility of a mind controlled Splinter vs The Turtles? It doesn't get better than that!

Can't wait! Wonder if we'll be seeing Rocksteady and Beebop? I certainly hope so.

i doubt it. I think they were more or less replaced by Dogpound and whatever Xever's new name is.
