It looks like Power Rangers will be staying on Nickelodeon.
Saban Brands and Nickelodeon announced today that they've extended their partnership in the U.S. until 2021. Nickelodeon has been the home of Power Rangers since Saban Brands purchased it back from Disney, debuting on the network with 2011's Power Rangers Samurai.
“Saban’s Power Rangers has been on the air for 25 continuous seasons and we are thrilled to extend our long-standing and collaborative partnership with Nickelodeon through 2021 to continue to deliver action-packed adventures to a new generation of kids,” said Janet Hsu, Chief Executive Officer of Saban Brands. “We are excited for the year ahead and what’s to come for the Power Rangers franchise.”
Pam Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer and President of Consumer Products, Nickelodeon Group added: “Saban Brands has been a leader in kids’ entertainment since its inception and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship by bringing fans more Power Rangers on Nickelodeon in the coming years.”
The current season is Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, and though it isn't known what the next series will be, fans at least now know what network they'll ultimately find it on.
