Very good news indeed
Oh my! This is good news for the power rangers!
Okay, that just great. Now Saban Brands and Nickelodeon extend their partnership til 2021. Congratulations, Nickelodeon and Saban Brands! I just think some people grew tired of Nickelodeon and pissed off at the same time, especially the 20-episode season show crap, the super season thing, skipping the Sentai seasons Go-Busters, ToQger and Zyuohger and the going on hiatus in the middle of a season is very annoying. In the future, Saban Brands and Nickelodeon should end their stupid partnership permanently and let Saban go to the network like Hulu, Netflix, or CW! I mean it!
This ruined my day
Maybe saban brands put live actors and costume actors as power rangers team just like kyuranger in Japan it’s doesn’t matter if they are 9 and 12 Members of rangers team maybe they put each 5 ,6, 9,11,12 or what numbers in each episodes like kyuranger, and it doesn’t matter little sky blue ranger
Maybe they take another kid rangers just like powe rangers turbo, cause I like kyuranger so much.
Boycott. That’s all I can say.
You guys are fake fans.
Since buying the franchise back, all Saban Brands and Nickelodeon has done is alienate fans, hurt the brand and insult our intelligence. You may love the hiatus breaks and the horrific writing, but most people don’t.
Why? I’d argue Nickelodeon has only acted as a thorn in the side of Power Rangers since the beginning of the Neo-Saban Era. I think the show should test their luck with a streaming service like Netflix. Excluding Ninja Steel, every season of Power Rangers is already available for instant streaming on the site; in fact, I’m just about to finish my latest run of Mystic Force thanks to them. I think that with Netflix, Saban has a better chance of producing the content that I wanna see, which is future seasons of Power Rangers suited to entertain both children and adults alike.
A better news would be that the show is over than to continue on Nick. I really wish there’s no more super seasons and go back to produce 38-40 episodes per season. That each character has a story, interest in story, and not only that their gather despaired and then come back… I hope there’s better writing, we know it’s kid show, but Kids aren’t stupid, both Saban and Nick should consider that. Please get real actors for the show! It hurts to listen the terrible writing with atrocious acting.
It would be better to consider what Disney wanted to do with the show, it’d be best if you bring the sentai to America dubbing the show. At least the storyline and characters would be epic… AND plase stop with the catchy phrases… like “earth’s defenders never surrender”, “ooh this is epic”, and “megazords out of the shadows”, and “power rangers fear ni danger”
i love power rangers. but this news is going to be the death of the show. the show is already on death’s doorstep thanks to the crap that is nickelodeob
Well that it’s super cool news. I really hope I get to be a power ranger.
If Saban skips Zyuohger I’m done with power rangers
I love to watch the. power ranger ninja steel but now days that the show will not be showed .
I am very sad
Why the. power ranger ninja steel not be showed in the Nick channel?
I’m the realest Power Rangers fan there is
The mean thing we all want for power rangers is for it not to be split into 2 seasons because nobody likes it and it has caused the community to decrease in fans
I’m loyal to Power Rangers. Always have been, always will be.
Cosmic Quest and Super Cosmic Quest are coming in 2019 and 2020
I’m curious as to what the 3 year extension really means. Does it mean we’re gonna have Kyuranger footage for 3 seasons. As much as I like those Kyuranger suits I don’t think in this day and age it would be wise for Saban to do such a thing. Even though it worked with Mighty Morphin, Its not going to work with kyuranger. Unless they do something crazy like introduce the Patranger or Lupinranger suits in the 3rd season.
This is great news. At least three more years worth of Power Ranger episodes! This makes my day! At this point I don’t care which channel Power Rangers are on as long as the franchise continues!
Glad I’m not the only “Real” Power Rangers Fan out there.
as much as i love power rangers the deal with nickelodeon is a bad one but hey at least we get 3 more years of power rangers going on hiatus for 8 months of the year
Saban needs to retire
now it all makes sense why the series has gone down hill after power rangers rpm, sure power rangers samurai and beyond are good but they pale in comparison to what came b4, nickelodeon locking them into 22 episodes per year is horrible seeing as the show that the series is based on is a 50 episode a year show and splitting them up into 2 seasons of the show and just putting super in the name somewhere is a stupid idea please stop doing this power rangers were better off being with Disney than nickelodeon and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t really like Disney a whole lot (except for kingdom hearts and star wars mainly)
Here we Go this is really impressing if possible for the power rangers to reforce or include Nigerians people it will be good
I’m sick of Nickelodeon for limiting Power Rangers to only 20 Episode per season plus 2 holiday special. I personally don’t like how we are skipping season even through we are going back to Go-Buster (2012) for Beast Morpher (2019 & 2020) It kind of getting boring after seeing lot of comic relief duo in the background after RPM (2009). The only good season is Dino Charge (2015), I mean season 1, not Dino Super Charge (2016) that has the worst ending. Beast Morpher Season 1 was good, but super season or 2nd season went downhill with lot of filler. The last time we probably had a perfect side comic relief duo was in Dino Thunder (2004) with Devin and Cassidy. I hope for 2021 season, Power Rangers Dino Fury, it seem like we are getting another comic relief duo, hope it better than Ben and Betty and most importantly be more likable than Victor & Monty in Ninja Steel (2017).
If they do plan to extend with Nick after 2021, I hope they don’t ruin the good story of Lupinranger VS Patranger (2018).
I hoping they have a new contact with another network such as ABC families, Cartoon Network, and TLC maybe.
