After months of waiting, and building excitement for what the 26th season of the Power Rangers franchise could be (will it be a sequel to Power Rangers RPM or a whole new story) the cast was officially revealed at 2018’s Power Morphicon – held for the first time in Anaheim California from August 17-19th.

So THANKFUL to be the new Red Ranger on Nickelodeon’s Power Rangers Beast Morphers ☄️✨💥. I just want to thank everybody who has followed and supported me through this journey and also for all the fans giving us such a warm welcome to the Power Ranger family!! Much more to come! Be on the look for #PowerRangers #beastmorphers 2019 on #nickelodeon
First Beast Morphers Trailer:
One interesting tidbit heard in Iris Hampton’s panel covering casting for the show, such as “Iris Hampton just implied they’re going along with what Go-Busters did re: Stag Buster, saying she cast four rangers.” (via @aresef)
The four actors, and Chip Lynn, will be heading off to New Zealand real soon to start (pre-)production of the new seasons: Power Rangers Beast Morphers. They will be in NZ for 8-12 months working on the new season, which will start airing in Spring 2019 on Nickelodeon.
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.
