The Power Rangers must master their arsenal of Ninja Power Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary Ninja Steel, in order to stop the evil Galvanax and save Earth from destruction. Nickelodeon has unleashed the first trailer for Power Rangers Ninja Steel, coming to Nickelodeon in January 2017! The network hasn't released an official premiere date yet, but that may be coming soon. This represents the 24th season in the iconic franchise that started in 1993.
The trailer, which debuted on the franchise's YouTube channel, comes months after Saban Brands and Nickelodeon announced that Power Rangers Dino Super Charge, the 23rd season of the iconic, long-standing franchise, will premiere on Saturday, Jan. 30, at 12 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S. In this new season, the Rangers must continue their quest to unite all 10 Energems by tapping into brand-new battle gear, Zords and Megazords to save the universe. Power Rangers Dino Super Charge will make franchise history by uniting 10 Power Rangers on the same team for the first time ever.
It was also announced in January that Saban Brands is continuing its longtime partnership with Nickelodeon to serve as the official broadcaster for the Power Rangers television series in the U.S. through 2018. With this news, the companies unveiled Power Rangers Ninja Steel as the title for the 24th season of the series. Power Rangers Ninja Steel will premiere on Nickelodeon in 2017 and Chip Lynn will return as executive producer.
Saban's Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Zircon is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe, and monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Zircon is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Spirit Crystal, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Throwing Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess the Spirit Crystal. The evil Zircon sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Crystal, where each epic battle against the Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Throwing Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary ninja steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save our planet from destruction.
Will Shewfelt leads this cast of characers as Brody, the Red Ranger, with Chrystiane Lopes playing Sarah the Pink Ranger, Zoe Robins as White Ranger Haley, Peter Sudarso as Preston the Blue Ranger and Nico Greetham as Calvin the Yellow Ranger. Saban's Power Rangers franchise is the brainchild of Haim Saban, creator and producer of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers hit series that launched in 1993. Following its introduction, Power Rangers quickly became the most-watched children's television program in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running kids live-action series in television history. The series follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who "morph" into superheroes and save the world from evil. It is seen in more than 150 markets, translated into numerous languages and a favorite on many key international children's programming blocks around the world.
