After the combination of two Sentai shows for one series, Saban Brands is looking to defy tradition again in 2015 by skipping a whole season for the 22nd iteration of Power Rangers.
Saban Brands has announced today that the next season to air on Nickelodeon in 2015 will be titled Power Rangers Dino Charge. The show will be an adaptation of the current season of Super Sentai, Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, which will see its final episode air today.
On February 15, fans will see the return of Power Rangers with the latest season, Power Rangers Super Megaforce. While keeping the suits seen in last season’s Power Rangers Megaforce, which were adapted from 2010’s Sentai series Tensou Sentai Goseiger, the Rangers will use a power-up mode that will allow them to use new suits and new powers stemming from 2011’s Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. Following the trend, many suspected that Saban would continue on and create a new season of Power Rangers based off of the Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, which aired in 2012. But, it looks like that will not be the case. For the first time in Power Rangers franchise history, a Sentai series will be completely skipped without any suit or mech adaptation.
Here is an exerpt from the announcement summarizing the plot of the next season:
“In Dino Charge, the Paragon Prisms were given to a dozen dinosaurs for safe keeping by an alien, but they were lost when asteroids hit the Earth and wiped out the dinos. Now in the present day, an intergalactic bounty hunter starts sniffing around Earth looking for the Prisms in order to harness their power and annihilate the world, so a team of Power Rangers forms to find the Prisms first and fight the bounty hunter and other threats with dino-powered swords, blasters, Zords and Megazords.”
