Ninjago: Secrets of Forbidden Spinjitzu

The LEGO Ninjago team wanted us to share a special announcement about the upcoming season of the LEGO Ninjago saga, titled LEGO Ninjago: Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu. There are some changes coming with the next season, so read the details below, and let’s discuss!

LEGO Ninjago: March of the Oni marks the conclusion to an epic storyline, which started in 2018. After a little vacation-time, it’s time for the ninja to get ready for a brand-new adventure! The upcoming TV season will have 30 episodes of 11 minutes each, making it the ninjas’ biggest adventure yet. The season picks up shortly after March of the Oni and remains true to the story canon and the characters.

This is not a reboot, nor a spin-off, but merely a brand-new adventure. A fresh beginning helps new viewers to watch and discover the magic of Ninjago without knowing much about the 100 episodes prior. However, if you do know your Ninjago canon, it will be a fun and fast refresher-course, as we get everyone back up to speed. We want to make sure that Ninjago is a welcoming experience.

The new season marks the beginning of a new chapter in the world of Ninjago. Whereas the first chapter was heavily tied to a 22-minute serialized TV format, this next chapter will not be confined to a specific format. The 11-minute episodes allow for new and creative possibilities for the storytelling. Also, with the growth of exiting story formats like comics, in-world books etc. that are extending the Ninjago universe, this new chapter will be more exploratory and creative. Our ambition to always keeping Ninjago compelling and interesting is core to the continued popularity of Ninjago.

For long-time fans, this new season will feel both new and familiar. There will be many deep cuts, recurring characters, references to past events and reveals of previously undisclosed lore from ancient Ninjago history. All those components are core to Ninjago, and after all, the new episodes are being produced by some of the biggest fans of the franchise. Ninjago has become a world of its own, and we have been blessed with the opportunity to tell action-packed, engaging, and emotional stories to a constant stream of newcomers and long-time followers of the show.

We hope you are ready to join us and the ninja as they embark on their next great adventure. Stay tuned for the official LEGO Ninjago: Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu season teaser which will be released on May 26th. Ninja… GO! – Sincerely, The Ninjago Team

If you have any questions and/or feedback about this announcement, feel free to post them in the comment section below, and I will forward them to the Ninjago team via the LEGO Ambassador Network. They are happy to hear from and interact with fans and respond to any questions. And in the meantime, you can also check out the currently available sets (including the LEGO Ninjago Legacy collection, a remake of the most iconic early Ninjago sets) at the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    Finally! I was looking for some update. Can’t wait for the trailer!

    Ohhhh!!! Ninja GOOOO! So looking forward to the next season. 30 episodes is a lot! I hope they upload them to youtube because it’s so hard to catch them on TV.

    11 minutes for each episode seems short. Just saying. In 20 minutes you can have a good plot. But maybe they will have the episodes more frequently?

    I’m happy to hear this news, and curious how they are going to execute it. The first generation of Ninjago fans are now college age, but many of us still enjoy Ninjago. And it is popular with younger fans too. I’m curious how they will make something that will appeal to those different age groups.

      I’m older and watch Ninjago regularly. They did a great job making the story interesting for all age groups. They just have to keep doing whatever they have been doing with the show. And give us a few AFOL sets, sets for the kids, and Ninjago can continue forever.

        It has lasted surprisingly long for an in-house theme without any licence to back it up. Many other action- and conflict-based boys’ themes have come and gone during the time, but Ninjago has become evergreen…

    I just wish they didn’t cancel the DVD releases after Season 7 in the UK. My son has dropped right off as we can no longer get hold of them and aren’t Sky subscribers so can’t get it on Cartoon Network.

      Gosh, that’s not good. I can raise this concern on the Ambassador Forum.

  • brickhead May 20, 2019, 5:21 PM

    Fantastic news!! So looking forward to the new episodes. I also wish that they put the episodes on their youtube channel or website. I’m tired of dealing with the Disney channel and trying to figure out when the episodes play. Just put it on youtube for everyone to enjoy at their own time.

    • Håkan May 20, 2019, 6:15 PM

      Oh, yeah, animation is quite expensive, but my impression was that the sets would basically finance the series…

      • admin May 21, 2019, 4:23 PM

        That’s a good point. Distribution of the episodes is terrible, so I do hope they find a better way to air them. Hopefully the sets, the DVDs, books, and other merchandize can pay for them.

    I don’t have any questions, I just hope they don’t make to many changes to the format. I liked the longer episodes. I don’t mind on expanding on some of the backstories and reintroducing characters. They already did that in the last episodes to some extent and that was fine.
