“You're the Master of Water. There's no one more connected to the sea than you.”
Jay to Nya in "Unsinkable"

The 2021 season of LEGO Ninjago, subtitled Seabound[1], is preceded by The Island. It aired in April 2021, the same year as the series' 10th anniversary. Nya is the focus character, Kalmaar serves as the main antagonist, and the Merlopians serve as the villainous faction of the season.

Official description

When Nya’s powers are disrupted, the ninjas set off in search of answers and find themselves at the bottom of endless oceans where they discover that her powers are linked to an ancient mythical creature.[citation needed]

Trivia

  • This season's name, Seabound, sounds very similar to the name of Season 6, Skybound. Nya is one of the main focus characters in both seasons.
  • Although Kirby Morrow unexpectedly passed away in November 18, 2020, he recorded Cole's lines for this season prior to his death. LEGO announced that the 2021 episodes will be dedicated to his honor.[3]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen:
    • On January 14, 2021, the Ninjago's 10th anniversary, he said that they had received the render of the last episode of 2021 from WildBrain, and had done the first voice record for the 2022 episodes the day before.[4]
    • Depending on how this season turns out, it may be his favourite.[5]
    • In response to a fan wanting "Nya angst," he stated, "We shall provide!".[6]
    • There will be a "new actor... new character. And easily one of the weirdest and wonderful ones we have ever come up with."[7]
    • A future season will go down as the best in the series' history.[8]
    • Nya would face "her biggest challenge yet later this year."[9]
    • He tweeted "Reviewing final sound mix and color grading on the last of the 2021 episodes today. It is not an easy watch for several reasons..."[10]
    • When asked if Cole will be retired from the show following the season's conclusion, Tommy replied that they "have considered every possibility and it was not a task we took lightly."[11]
    • There will be more focus on Jay and Nya's relationship than there is in most other years.[12]
  • According to Bragi Schut, "[t]here are tons of fun things coming, and we're all hard at work on Ninjago."[13]
  • Tommy Andreasen has also asked, "What do you hope for… a happy satisfying ending to the [2021] episodes? Or a chilling heartbreaking endings to the episodes?"[14]
  • This is the first season since Hunted and the first WildBrain season where Jillian Michaels is part of the voice cast.
  • Amount of times a different character reads a title card:
  • This is the first season which was released earlier than the sets.
