Power Rangers Beast Morphers is staying true to Nickelodeon’s format.
When Power Rangers Beast Morphers premieres in 2019, it will air 22 episodes. This follows the same format the franchise has rolled out over the previous 8 years – with 20 episodes airing alongside two holiday themed specials: one geared towards Halloween, and another geared towards Christmas.
Each episode will have a 30 minute runtime, with commercials.
While not a format fans have loved, it’s a format fans have become accustomed to dating back to when Haim Saban re-inherited the reigns to the franchise beginning with Power Rangers Samurai, and most recently ending with Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel.
This news does not confirm that Power Rangers Beast Morphers will have a second season in 2020. While it’s likely that the cast, and adaptation of Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, will stick around into a “Power Rangers Super Beast Morphers” (fan-made, unconfirmed title), it has yet to be definitively confirmed.
With 22 episodes airing in 2019, Power Rangers Beast Morphers will take the Power Rangers franchise to a grand total of 897 episodes when the season concludes.
The news was revealed in an article about Mipcom, detailing Hasbro’s slate at the upcoming international trade show.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will be the first season to air under Hasbro’s ownership following the toy giant’s acquisition of the property in early May 2018 (recap here).
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, which will follow Devon, Ravi, and Zoe – the core three Rangers portrayed by Rorrie Travis, Jasmeet Baduwalia, and Jacqueline Scislowski.
Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun.
