Nickelodeon USA will start to premiere and show Power Rangers Ninja Steel, the 24th season of the iconic, long-standing Power Rangers franchise, which will introduce fans to the next generation of Power Rangers, from Saturday 21st January 2017!
With the franchise’s 24th season, Saban Brands' Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Galvanax is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe in which monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Galvanax is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Ninja Nexus Prism, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess it. The evil Galvanax sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Ninja Power Stars, where each epic battle against the Power Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Ninja Power Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary Ninja Steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save Earth from destruction!
The series will be based on Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, Toei's 39th ninja-themed Super Sentai special effects series in Japan.
UPDATE: Nick and More has unveiled the titles and descriptions for the first two episodes of Power Rangers Ninja Steel!:
Saturday 21st January 2017 - Power Rangers Ninja Steel Episode 1 "Return of the Prism": A young teen named Brody escapes to Earth from an alien spaceship with a special artifact called the Ninja Nexus Prism. He and two new friends must unlock its secrets to defend it from the villainous champion Galvanax.
Saturday 28th January 2017 - Power Rangers Ninja Steel Episode 2 "Forged in Steel": As Brody, Preston, and Sarah return to Brody's childhood home in an attempt to find his lost family, Hayley and Calvin come across a strange alien named Mick.
Power Rangers Ninja Steel stars Will Shewfelt as Brody, the Red Ranger; Chrystiane Lopes as Sarah, the Pink Ranger; Chantz Simpson as Calvin, the Yellow RAnger; Zoe Robins as Hayley, the White Ranger; and Peter Sudarso as Preston, the Blue Ranger.
