Saban Brands and Nickelodeon have announced that the all-new season of POWER RANGERS, Saban’s POWER RANGERS SUPER MEGAFORCE, will premiere on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 12:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Following its debut, the show will air regularly Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon, with encores airing Saturdays from 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. ET beginning Feb. 22 on Nicktoons.
Now entering its 21st season, the POWER RANGERS franchise remains one of the top-rated and longest running boys live-action series on television. The new series will deliver super mega action, humor, excitement and entertainment, in addition to the core themes of friendship, teamwork, fitness and helping others.
In the final moments of the last season, the Power Rangers defeated the Warstar villains. Now, in POWER RANGERS SUPER MEGAFORCE, Prince Vekar arrives with his massive alien Armada to conquer the earth. With the help of their supernatural guardian, Gosei, the Power Rangers are given special morphers and keys that allow them to morph into Super Megaforce Rangers! Using these keys, they also have the amazing new ability to morph into any team of Legendary Rangers from the past, gaining access to their incredible powers, weapons, Zords and Megazords.
“With POWER RANGERS SUPER MEGAFORCE, we are excited to bring an all-new action packed storyline to fans around the world,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. “This season reveals secret powers, the introduction of a new member of the team and legendary Power Rangers from the past 20 years, all of which are sure to keep fans engaged all season long.”
The Super Megaforce Rangers include: Troy, the Red Ranger (Andrew Gray); Noah, the Blue Ranger (John Mark Loudermilk); Gia, the Yellow Ranger (Ciara Hanna); Emma, the Pink Ranger (Christina Masterson); and Jake, the Green Ranger (Azim Rizk).
Fans can head to nick.com/megaforce, which will be refreshed for the SUPER MEGAFORCE season. The site will include original videos, full episodes, and sneak peeks of the upcoming season. On Feb. 10, fans can play the brand-new POWER RANGERS SUPER MEGAFORCE: LEGACY game on Nick.com. Featuring the brand-new Power Rangers Super Megaforce for the first time, these five new Rangers will suit up to fight the forces of Prince Vekar. The Rangers must cut through Hordes of X-Borgs and their bigger counterparts, Bruisers, on 3 challenging levels, each with its own unique setting and super powered boss. The game also features all-new Legendary Moves where the Power Rangers Super Megaforce will power up and transform temporarily into these classic Rangers and unleash the powers of those legacy Rangers.
