Yeah, they’re actually still making Power Rangers TV series. To be honest, I wonder why? The franchise isn’t nearly as big as it was in the 90s.
Anyway, the latest series, Power Rangers Megaforce, will premiere February 2 on Nickelodeon at 1:00 P.M. EST. Megaforce is the 20th “Season”, and is also beig used to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
In the show, the Earth is under attack by the evil Warstar aliens, so supernatural guardian Gosei summon five teenagers “with attitude” (what?) to battle the evil E.T.s. Each teenager is given mystical powers.
The series stars Andrew Gray, Christina Masterson, Azim Rizk, Ciara Hanna, John Mark Loudermilk.
Unfortunately, the franchise seems to be running on fumes. Megaforce will need to be really good to bring in new fans, as the previous Power Rangers show, Samurai, was known for being one of the worst ones, plus it didn’t do so well in TV ratings.
Note: Nickelodeon is infamous for the constantly changing schedule. If Megaforce doesn’t premiere on February 2, don’t be surprised.
