Seth Green joins the voice cast as Leonardo in Nickelodeon’s season three premiere of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiering this Friday, Oct. 3, 8:00pm (ET/PT). In the season opener, “Within the Woods,” the team comes to grips with the possibility that Leonardo won’t get better, while things only get worse: a new mutant captures Raphael.

Additionally, the network won the month of September with Kids 2-11, averaging a 2.0/636K with the demo, as well as securing 1.2M total viewers.
