Saban Brands has revealed the latest chapter of the Power Rangers franchise, titled Megaforce, and sold another two seasons from the brand to UK terrestrial Channel 5 (C5).
Power Rangers Megaforce is lined up to premiere on Nickelodeon in the US next year on the 20th anniversary on the brand’s birth. It will introduce a new plot based around a supernatural protector of Earth.
Meanwhile, C5 has acquired Megaforce’s predecessors, Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai. Both seasons will premiere later this summer on the channels’ boys-skewed weekend block.
The seasons’ distributor, MarVista Entertainment, has recently closed deals with Spanish children’s channel Boing, Venezuela’s Venevision, Chile’s Mega and Indian Nick affiliate channel Sonic. Broadcasters in Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy and Mexico also run them.
Nick debuted Power Rangers Super Samurai in the US and YTV in Canada in February.
