The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in theaters, with their best movie in a long time. The new animated tale of Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo shows us the tail tale of the Turtles’ journey to becoming heroes, as well as a some run-ins with a few different bad guys.

The movie’s already a ton of fun, but it’s also full of Easter eggs that would be nearly impossible to see on the first go-around. So here’s when you can expect Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem to make it to streaming, and what you can watch while you wait for it to arrive on Paramount Plus.

When and where will TMNT: Mutant Mayhem come to streaming?

We don’t know for sure, but we do have a guess. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem was released by Paramount Pictures, which means that the earliest it could come to streaming is between 30 and 45 days from its theatrical release. Now, few movies actually make it to streaming services that quickly, which means we can probably expect it on Paramount Plus closer to September or October.

Is TMNT: Mutant Mayhem getting a sequel?

TMNT: Mutant Mayhem is getting a sequel, but not for a little bit. First, it’s getting an animated series that will head to Paramount Plus. The series will run two seasons and is meant to bridge the first movie and the second.

What’s the TMNT show about?

We don’t know for sure yet, but the movie teased the arrival of Shredder, the Turtles’ most famous villain, in its post-credits scene. According to Mutant Mayhem’s director, Shredder didn’t appear in the first movie to make sure that both he and the Turtles got the proper origin-story time they deserved. Maybe that means the series will show the come-up of both the Turtle team and Shredder until they ultimately meet in the second movie.

What if I want to watch the Turtles’ favorite movies and anime while I wait?

Good news! Director Jeff Rowe has revealed the Turtles’ favorite movies, so you can check them all out:

  • Donny: End of Evangelion
  • Leo: Step Brothers
  • Mikey: Get Hard (or any Kevin Hart comedy)
  • Raph: Bloodsport

As an added bonus, here are a couple of anime recs from Donny too. As you may have noticed from the trailer, let alone the full movie, Donatello is a huge weeb and loves anime. So. in case you need something to catch up on while you wait for the Turtles to make it to streaming, here’s a list of anime that are particularly relevant to Donny and the movie:

  • Attack on Titan
  • Jujutsu Kaisen
