Season 4 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will have its American premiere on Sunday 25th October on Nickelodeon according to the show's official Twitter account (UPDATE - now confirmed during the TMNT panel at New York Comic Con).

Following the emotional and earth-shattering finale of Season 3 on Sunday, the four amphibious heroes found themselves pulled back from the brink of certain death by the timely appearance of the Fugitoid, a fugitive android who rescued them in his spaceship. David Tennant is set to guest star in a thirteen-episode story arc through the new season, voicing the fan-favourite comic book character, formerly the scientist Professor Zayton Honeycutt, whose mind became trapped inside the android when his own body was destroyed.

David joins regular cast members Sean Astin, Seth Green, Rob Paulsen, Greg Cipes and Mae Whitman in the fourth season of the hugely popular Nickelodeon animated series. Other guest stars for Season 4 will include Ron Perlman, Zelda Williams, Lucy Lawless and Peter Stormare.
