Shortly after it was announced that casting for this season would begin, and that Power Rangers Nickelodeon until 2021, and that the master toy license was switched to Hasbro, we now have the name for the Power Rangers seasons airing in 2019 and 2020: Power Rangers Beast Morphers adapted from, in a surprise move, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters. This will be the first season officially done in partnership with Hasbro. (Official press release at the bottom of the article).

The news was announced at Hasbro’s private event at New York Toy Fair. Power Rangers NOW live tweeted the event:

Official synopsis (via @PowerRangersNOW):

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.
There is no word as of yet whether or not this season will be split up over two years (to include a super season), or if it will be one theme for the 2019 television lineup.

For those who plan to Power Morphicon in August (17-19, 2018), you’re in for a good time. At PMC there is the highly anticipated Saban Brands panel that has quickly become the panel to be at over time. For the past few years, this panel has not only shown a bit of a preview to what could happen in the next season (a video used with sentai footage), but it’s become routine for the newest Power Rangers cast members to be revealed before they jet off to New Zealand for 9 months of filming.

As we wait for the new season, fans have plenty of Power Rangers excitement to look forward to as the 25th anniversary celebration continues.
