It's official! The new season of Power Rangers will air on Nickelodeon and will be titled Power Rangers Ninja Steel. Saban Brands has renewed their partnership with Nickelodeon through 2018 which suggests there will also be a "super" Ninja Steel season with the same cast, characters etc. much to many fans' dismay. Ninja Steel will be based on the Japanese series Shuriken Sentai Ninninger and will premiere the same year the big, blockbuster Power Rangers movie is set to be released to theatres.
Here is the official synopsis:
"Saban's Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Zircon is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe, and monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Zircon is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Spirit Crystal, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Throwing Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess the Spirit Crystal. The evil Zircon sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Crystal, where each epic battle against the Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Throwing Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary ninja steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save our planet from destruction."
UPDATE (11/05/2016) - Casting and production sides have revealed Ninja Steel is returning the Power Rangers setting to high school! Yes, after Megaforce in 2013, the Power Rangers will be high school students. Also, two new slapstick/comic relief characters called Vince and Morty will play a comedic duo. Yes, they appear to be looking for a new Bulk & Skull.
Vince - tall, buff, handsome and funny. He has a chiselled look, an athletic build, but is as dumb as a rock. He is the most popular kid in school and his arrogance rises to comedic heights. Morty is his sidekick...
Morty - unathletic, great comedic abilities, and a devious streak. Morty is the geekiest kid in school, he is the long suffering subservient and envious sidekick of Vince, the most popular kid in school...
Ninja Steel will begin filming in September in New Zealand.
UPDATE (26/05/2016) IGN's Snapchat account revealed the Ninja Steel Logo!
