The most storied Executive Producer in Power Rangers history is returning for another round in 2019.
Chip Lynn, other times referred to as Judd Lynn, will return as Executive Producer for Power Rangers Beast Morphers – premiering on Nickelodeon in 2019. This will mark the fifth consecutive Power Rangers season to be produced under Lynn, and the first season to be produced under Hasbro’s ownership of the Power Rangers brand.
Lynn made his debut on the Power Rangers scene when he served as Executive Producer of Power Rangers In Space in 1998, carrying the same title for the franchise all the way through Power Rangers Time Force in 2001.
After departing the franchise when it was sold to Disney in 2002, Lynn would return as Executive Producer of Power Rangers RPM in 2009. His latest run with the show began in 2015 with Power Rangers Dino Charge.
While Lynn was often considered to be a fan-favorite, his recent run of Power Rangers Dino Charge and Power Rangers Ninja Steel has left fans questioning if he’s still the right man for the job. Leadership at Hasbro evidently believes that to be the case, as Lynn will remain in charge for the first season under the new company’s belt.
At this time, it is unknown if Lynn will retain his same writing staff which primarily consists of Becca Barnes and Alwyn Dale, both of whom have been a part of the show for Power Rangers Dino Charge and Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will begin with three core Rangers – Red, Blue, and Yellow – a team size that Lynn has never had the opportunity to tackle. With a new team size to work with, and a new company in charge, only time will tell if Lynn will change his approach in adapting the newest season of Power Rangers.
Fans can find the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below.
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.
The season will adapt its footage from the Super Sentai season, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
The season was first announced at Toy Fair 2018 in February (recap here).
