New Power Rangers Reboot Coming to Netflix as “Potential Universe” with Multiple Shows and Films

The Power Rangers are coming in a whole new wave of streamable media.

In case you missed it, 2020 was a big year for toy-maker Hasbro after a finished deal to acquire Canadian multinational entertainment company Entertainment One for $4 billion. That’s a lot of cash which means big things are on the horizon for Hasbro properties, the biggest of which includes the Power Rangers. And now, we have a little detail on what that may look like.

Entertainment One’s President and CEO Darren Throop and President of Film and Television Steve Bertram reached out to Michael Lombardo, the former President of Programming at HBO, and brought him in as a consultant before hiring him on as the President of Global Television in June of last year. Now, these media juggernauts are planning their first big move and it sounds like that involves streaming giant Netflix.

According to Deadline, Netflix’s Jonathan Entwistle is working together with the aforementioned media moguls to piece the framework for what will allegedly be “a potential universe of multiple series and movies based on the company’s Power Rangers IP”.

We hope the new universe is all about the MMPR team. Every season that followed just wasn’t as good.

Speaking to Deadline directly, Michael Lombardo had the following to say when asked about a status update for the multiple planning details for Power Rangers:

“Since we set up Power Rangers with Jonathan, we pitched really a whole-world approach. It’s not just one show, it is shows followed by films, some kids’ programming. We have found a great writing partner for him, they are off. Knock on wood, Netflix is excited, we’re excited, we hope to have some news soon.”

After the massive flop that was the 2017 film reboot, Hasbro and involved parties were quick to try and find a way to capitalize on their cinematic failure and that clearly lead to a new way to bolster the series by working with Netflix. Whether or not the series will start off with the MMPR or some whole new design and setting is not yet known. Either way, this could be either really great for Rangers fans or really, really bad.
