“Guys! We need to stop fighting and work together! Look, it's time we faced it. Master Wu was right. We've gone soft. Not just individually, but as a team.”

Official Description

Basking in the glory of their recent victory, the ninja embark on a new adventure to explore a mysterious pyramid – just for a little light rest and recovery, of course. But has success lulled our heroes into a false sense of security? When the ninja accidentally set an ancient threat loose, nothing could ever have prepared them for the mayhem that follows.

Trailer 1 - The Fire Chapter: The Scrolls of Forbidden Spinjitzu have been kept a secret for a thousand years. With good reason. The evil Serpentine sorceress, Aspheera, was banished along with the Scrolls – but now she is back, hungry for revenge, and ready to get her fangs on the Scrolls once more and reclaim her powers. The ninja’s powers, friendships, beliefs and loyalties will be put to the test like never before.

Trailer 2 - The Ice Chapter: Zane’s been captured by the evil Ice Emperor. The Ninja have mounted a desperate rescue mission – but if they want to see their friend again, they’ll have to battle hordes of Blizzard Samurai as they make their way through the Never-Realm, from where no Ninja has ever returned. Join the adventures of Nya, Kai, Jay, Zane, Cole, Lloyd, and Master Wu in 15 exciting new episodes. Bundle up, and let’s go!

Spinners

Notes

  • This is the first season to have 11-minute long episodes and be 30 episodes long.
    • Despite its shorter individual run-time, this season is set to be the longest season of Ninjago so far. This season features the largest amount of episodes in the series, and the highest amount of content, as in total it is 330 minutes.
    • It is also the first season to contain more than 13 episodes.
    • It is not the first time that an episode lasts 11 minutes, the first time was with the split Pilot Episodes, although this is the first time full episodes that are not split are with that duration.
  • The Season is divided into two fifteen episode chapters; the Fire Chapter and the Ice Chapter.
  • This is the first season not to be animated by WILFilm ApS.
    • This is also the first season to be animated by WildBrain (formerly called DHX Media).
  • This is the third season in a row to not have a focus character.
  • LEGO has changed the name of the teaser trailer for this season three times, first called LEGO Ninjago - Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu Teaser Trailer, then LEGO Ninjago - The All New Series (2019) teaser and finally LEGO Ninjago - New Season (2019).
  • This is the first season to have an error in the season's poster, which Zane can be found in front of the Fire Fang attacking it and he can also be found in the ShuriCopter.
  • Members of The Fold revealed in their official podcast that they have made a new song for the opening of this season.[3]
  • Starting with the episode "Questing for Quests," there is an intro recapping the events of the previous episode with the new remix of The Weekend Whip in the background.
    • This is also the first season not to have the traditional "previously on Ninjago" section at the beginning of the episodes.
    • The intro says the episode name but does not say the episode number.
    • This is the first season since Season 7: The Hands of Time to feature songs by The Fold in the opening.
  • A new vehicle called the Land Bounty appears in this season. The Destiny's Bounty is also used.
  • When the entire Ice Chapter was made available on TV On Demand on November 1, 2019, it was not made available on Cartoon Network's app and website, for unknown reasons.
  • The sets revealed new characters, including Aspheera, General Vex, Char, Akita, the Blizzard Samurai, and Pyro Vipers.
  • The Ninja travel to the Never-Realm. The Ninjas' goal is to rescue Zane. This is in the second part of the season: the Ice Chapter.
  • The first trailer is called the Fire Chapter, which seems to explain that the season will be divided up into two sections; one for the Pyro Vipers and one for the Blizzard Samurai.
  • Each episode has a different Ninja announcing the episode's title at the end of the opening.
  • Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu was released in the summer/fall of 2019, making it the third time two seasons aired in the same year.
  • It is treated as a part of a new series by several sources. This may be due to the Masters of Spinjitzu subtitle being dropped, and LEGO occasionally branding it as a "new series" in promotional material.
    • On the Cartoon Network USA app/website, the season is separated from the others, as if it is the first season of a new series.
    • This is also the case for the Google Knowledge panel which claims Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu ended with March of the Oni and a new Knowledge panel has been created for Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu.
    • Google Play also lists this as the beginning of a new series. The synopsis states: "Picking up shortly after the events of "March of the Oni," the series begins a new chapter in the world of Ninjago, as well as a new format. Neither a reboot nor a spin-off, the next adventure explores new and creative possibilities for storytelling in shorter segments, a noticeable change from the longer episodes and serialized format of the previous series. Not to fear, fans of the franchise: the show's creators promise there will be many deep cuts, recurring characters, references to past events, and reveals of previously undisclosed lore from ancient Ninjago history."[4]
    • According to Tommy Andreasen, Ninjago onwards is "kind of a new series", due to having different writers, a different tone, and being produced by a new studio.[5]
  • Tommy Andreasen revealed in a tweet that 2D animation, styled as anime, would be incorporated in the second half of Season 11.
  • Kai and Nya are the only Ninja to have not shown their Forbidden Spinjitzu powers. However, in "Vengeance is Mine!", Kai was unable to use the ability, since his powers were stolen by Aspheera during that point in time.
  • Amount of times a different character read a title card:
  • This is the first season since Rebooted to have a hiatus between episodes while airing in the United States.
  • Season 11 has the second largest cast in the series, the first being Hunted.
  • When a fan asked Tommy Andreasen if the format of stories being split into chapters named after the other main characters' elements or powers could happen in future seasons, he said that anything is possible, but "[they] play [their] cards close to the chest," meaning they would not be divulging their plans.[6]
  • This is the first season since her debut in Season 2 where Misako does not make an appearance. It is also the second season in which Garmadon does not make a physical appearance, the first being Season 6. However, unlike in Season 6, in which he does not appear at all, he appears in a flashback and as a reflection here.
