The next chapter of ‘Supah Ninjas' is ready to kick off next month on Nickelodeon.

Filmed in the Strip District, the high-energy, action-comedy series starts its second season at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 9. The show follows the misadventures of high school martial arts hero Mike Fukanaga, played by Ryan Potter, and his friends Owen (Carlos Knight) and Amanda (Gracie Dzienny) as they take on villains who terrorize Empire City.

The show, created by Upper St. Clair native Eric S. Garcia, also stars George Takei as Mike's recently deceased grandfather, who appears as a hologram to channel advice to the trio.

Going 'From the Top'

Young musicians from Wexford and Upper St. Clair will perform Saturday on “From the Top” the program on WQED-FM (89.3) that features up-and-coming classical players.
