It may be a new era for Power Rangers, but the Red Rangers are still have daddy issues.
Well, no exact issues have been confirmed, but recent Power Rangers seasons have become known for their Red Rangers having long, drawn out storylines involving their fathers. The first season of the Hasbro era, Power Rangers Beast Morphers, seems poised to continue that trend as the Red Ranger’s father will be the mayor of the city the season takes place in.
Devon Daniels, the Red Ranger, will be played by actor Rorrie Travis. Travis confirmed his character’s last name in a recent Instagram post, prompting some fans to realize that his last name coincides with a character who will portrayed by actor Kevin Copeland: Mayor Daniels.
With both characters bearing the last name of Daniels, there’s no doubt that the Red Ranger’s father will be the mayor of the season’s city which has yet to be named.
Fans can check out a photo of actor Kevin Copeland, who will play Mayor Daniels, below.
While fans will immediately draw comparisons to Power Rangers RPM where the Red Ranger’s father also held a position of authority, only time will tell exactly what storylines will stem from this connection on Power Rangers Beast Morphers.
Actress Jackie Scislowski also previously revealed her character’s last name on Instagram, Zoey Reeves, leaving only the Blue Ranger’s last name still unknown.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will have 22 episodes, and air on Nickelodeon in 2019 (click here to recap).
Hasbro’s Power Rangers Beast Morphers toys will begin hitting store shelves in Spring 2019. Fans can check out the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below.
