New Power Rangers are coming in 2017/18 for the 24th and 25th seasons and we’ve got our answers on which Sentai will be adapted next. This new team is called Power Rangers Ninja Steel and the sentai, Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, is being adapted for the upcoming seasons of the show.

On January 9th, Morphin K found the trademark for Ninja Steel.

IGN has given us a synopsis of the series, which will be airing on Nickelodeon through the 2017-2018 year.

Saban’s Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Zircon is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe, and monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Zircon is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Spirit Crystal, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Throwing Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess the Spirit Crystal. The evil Zircon sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Crystal, where each epic battle against the Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Throwing Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary ninja steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save our planet from destruction.

An official press release from Saban Brands has yet to be released, but will be added once it has. More information will be added as it becomes available.
