Power Rangers fans have a new, convenient place to watch the upcoming season of the long-running show. As reported by The Wrap, Netflix has nabbed the rights to Power Rangers Dino Fury season 2. While the first season of the show is already streaming on the service, Netflix will become the exclusive home in the U.S. for the new season, giving the show a new first destination.
Power Rangers Dino Fury had previously aired on Nickelodeon. The episodes were later made available on Netflix. But the streaming giant has closed a deal with Hasbro and eOne for the second season, which is expected to arrive in spring 2022. It will mark the 29th season of the series overall, which kicked off its long, historic run back in 1993.
Here is the synopsis for Power Rangers Dino Fury season 2.
Season 1 introduced us to a brand-new team of Power Rangers, fueled by the prehistoric power of the dinosaurs and recruited to deal with the threat of an army of powerful alien beings. The series will pick up right where season 1 left off, with the fate of Void Knight and Santaura revealed. Evil forces and influential villains will continue to disrupt the Dino Fury Rangers. Season 2 will also see Zayto and Aiyon discovering more about Rafkon, their home planet, the development of new and existing relationships, and the introduction of never-before-seen characters. Fans can also look forward to the reveals of exciting, new power-ups, including new Dino Boost Keys!
Aside from Dino Fury, Hasbro has big plans for the franchise moving forward. They are currently developing a new movie reboot. Jonathan Entwistle is heading up the project and is expected to direct. It will follow the 2017 movie reboot. That movie, produced by Lionsgate, failed to do enough business commercially to ignite the franchise on the big screen. Be that as it may, Hasbro feels there is enough juice in the tank to give it another go.
As for Netflix, this is another win as it looks to get an edge over the competition in the streaming game. The service currently has more than 209 million subscribers worldwide. That makes them easily the biggest in the business, standing above the likes of Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and HBO Max. Whether this leads to a larger relationship between Netflix, Hasbro and the Power Rangers in the future remains to be seen.
Power Rangers Dino Fury season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
