Power Rangers Are Coming Back For A New TV Show

Power Rangers Are Coming Back For A New TV Show

We've all been in dire need for some nostalgia during this utterly bleak year - and thankfully, we may have found just the thing to cheer us up.

Entertainment One have announced that our favourite childhood superheroes, the Power Rangers, will be reforming for a range of new television and film adaptations.

And the brand new iterations of the nineties classic could be taking a far darker turn, with director Jonathan Entwistle, known for his work on Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This and Channel 4's The End of the F***ing World.

"Jonathan has an incredible creative vision for this iconic and hugely successful franchise, and is hands down the right architect to join us as we reimagine the television and film worlds of this property," said eOne executives Nick Meyer and Michael Lombardo told Variety.

"Across our slate, we are looking forward to working with the most talented storytellers as we take on Hasbro's rich fan-favourite brands and build entertainment universes around them."

For those of us who never watched the iconic kids show, The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers saw a group of high-school teens gaining powers and uniting under the guidance of Zordon to save the world from Rita Repulsa and her evil forces.

Each ranger had their own unique abilities, with Kim, Jason, Billy, Trini, and Zack being the original heroes of the franchise.
