Storyline

In this live-action TV series, the Turtles are older than in the movies or cartoon, and are joined by a fifth, female Turtle. "Venus De Milo" mutated with the other 4 Turtles but was washed away with the current in the sewer into New York's Chinatown before Splinter came across the turtles. After learning the Shinobi arts in China for 17 years, Venus has returned to New York. The Turtles are now faced with new villains such as Dragon Lord, Bonesteel and Vam Mi.

It's Good
22 January 2005 | by RygogSee all my reviews

No matter what anyone says, Saban Entertainment did a great job in creating this series. Though it had a very short lived life, just like Masked Rider, VR Troopers, Big Bad BeetleBorgs, and the Mystic Knights. It did have a good one episode team-up in the sixth season of Power Rangers: Power Rangers in Space (which is going into it's 13th season Febuary 2005 and I'm still a fan). Too bad there wasn't a second season of Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. Although Saban should have continuted the series, because you can tell the last episode was meant to lead into the next season. Also I love how they incorporated another Ninja Turtle into the series... Venus.
