Last year, the pop culture fanatics at FYE made the dreams of Rugrats fans come true by releasing a real life Reptar chocolate bar filled with green frosting. It was a fun way to cash in on the nostalgia for the fan favorite Nicktoon of children of the ’90s, but it sounds like they may have heard the cries of some fans who were hoping for a more authentic recreation of the cartoon treat.

During their Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel for the Television Critics Association, Nickelodeon announced they had already greenlit a second season of the new series. That was before a sneak preview of the show and its official premiere on Nickelodeon.
Now, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres today on Nickelodeon with brand new designs for the turtles, new villains and even new music. The line-up is still classic, though: Donatello (Josh Brener), Michelangelo (Brandon Mychal Smith), Leonardo (Ben Schwartz) and Raphael (Josh Brener) team up with April O’Neill (Kat Graham) and their mentor Splinter (Eric Bauza).
After the TCA panel, executive producers Andy Suriano and Ant Ward hung around to talk with /Film a bit more about their plans for a second season, the new toys based on their new designs, Splinter’s reinvented role, and the Pinky and the Brain reunion on their show.

(Welcome to Nostalgia Bomb, a series where we take a look back on beloved childhood favorites and discern whether or not they’re actually any good. In this edition: revisiting the classic Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark.)
It’s been 18 years since Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark went off the air, yet in that time the audience who grew up with the anthology series have never forgotten it. The weekly horror show followed a group of teens telling ghost stories around a campfire, telling us what to fear about life and adolescence.
But in the time since its debut in 1992 – its 26th anniversary just passed – Are You Afraid of the Dark has aged beautifully, telling stories that did more than just present ghosts and ghouls, but gave kids a look at the more amorphous frights they’d never thought of.
