As we already know, LEGO Ninjago is good to go through 2022 and even 2023 in terms of new stuff. In line with that, the tie-in “Ninjago” animated series will get another season next year. And what else is new on the Ninjago front? Last week, series co-creator Tommy Andreasen revealed a five-issue comic-book series in cooperation with Skybound Entertainment. And if that wasn’t enough, we now have additional details on the next “Ninjago” season from online hints dropped by Andreasen. All these things we know courtesy of Brick Fanatics.
A correction which is not really relevant at this time:
'The Benefit of Grief' is episode 10 of Ninjago 2022 (not 12) … can't give away the title of episode 12. That would be a spoiler.
… just trying not to be eaten alive later.

During last week’s Skybound live-stream event featuring the “Ninjago” creative team, Andreasen teased viewers with an episode title. He claimed that episode to be the 12th in the upcoming season for 2022. A week later, Andreasen posted a correction on his Twitter page. The episode titled “The Benefit of Grief” was actually the 10th rather than 12th. He declined to name the actual title for episode 12, but his tweet brought details to a wider audience. Now we know, at the very minimum, that the next “Ninjago” season has at least 12 episodes lined up. That should cover animated LEGO Ninjago for the year 2022.
With regards to the Skybound LEGO Ninjago comic books, it ties into the series via a key character. None other than Garmadon headlines this five-issue story. The initial antagonist-turned-mentor-turned-villain to the Ninjago team left the story after season 10: “March of the Oni.” Synopses for the comic, done by writer-artist Tri Vuong, reveal Garmadon wandering the world as a lone protector. But is his latest heroic turn real, or is he still planning something? We’ll find out when the first issue arrives April next year. It’s likely around the time of the next season’s premiere.
