Hasbro and Nickelodeon announced Power Rangers will return with an all-new television series, Power Rangers Beast Morphers, premiering on Saturday, March 2, at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S. In the new season of Power Rangers, the Rangers are sporting tactical leather suits with their ‘Beast Bot’ sidekicks and elevated battle footage with an all-new cast of dynamic heroes, evil villains and imagination defying monsters.
