Unconfirmed: Beast Morphers Could Premiere March 2019

Ever since Power Rangers Beast Morphers was announced, production was under way, and little bits of news started to be released, the premiere date for the 26th season of the franchise has been widely speculated.

Would the original late January/early February start date, that has been the norm for the past few years, be repeated? Or, with the April 2019 start date for Hasbro’s acquisition of the toy line, would the show air later, potentially cutting down the length of the summer hiatus, and allowing for the show and the toy releases to line up.

While “Spring 2019” is a general term, and means different things to different people, here’s a quick rundown of instances where the premiere of the show was discussed:

  • August 2018: At Power Morphicon, at the Hasbro panel where Beast Morphers cast was introduced, it was said the show premiere in Spring 2019. (Around the 2m20s mark)

This does not rule out that February 2019 could still hold a Saturday premiere date. Most recently, March 2019 has been starting to be talked about as Beast Morphers’s premiere date:

This is unconfirmed, but could be the start date for the 26th season. Back in Rorrie’s first interview, where he stated February 2019 as the premiere, that may have been the initial premiere date. And it may have been moved as the production of the season went on. As the show is closer to airing, he may be more informed to let people he works with know that March is the actual premiere date.

If the show were to start in February, it would be a three-ish month gap before the first wave of toys from Hasbro started to appear on shelves. In a fandom where many are used to the toys of the new show to be out during the holidays, more specifically around Black Friday, that gap would be a great change of pace.

If the show is to premiere in March, it would almost be an exact year since casting for the show had taken place: mid-march of 2018.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers will premiere on Nickelodeon, Saturdays at 12pm ET.

The Power Rangers are going full on “beast mode” with its 26th season of Power Rangers Beast Morphers, which releases on Nickelodeon in 2019. Featuring an all-new cast of heroes and villains, Power Rangers Beast Morphers will expand the Power Rangers universe with tactical leather suits, ‘Beast Bot’ sidekicks and elevated battle footage.

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.
