Jumping the Gun Speculations: 2 Years of Power Rangers Samurai?

UPDATED 9/28/10 2:30 PM EST
I am freaking out already, Saban Brands announced (Variety Article) there will be 2 years of Power Rangers Samurai. They said they would keep the same theme. While themes changed annually in years past, the Samurai theme will extend for two years. "We always introduce new elements throughout the course of the season, including the occasional new ranger," said Elie Dekel (Saban Brands), adding that Saban will keep the five original rangers. So now a Goseiger adaption might not come along until 2013 instead of 2012. But if it could work out in different ways:

  • For Power Rangers Samurai, they could do what they did in the old days of MMPR and give them new zords for the next year. But the next series Goseiger, there black instead of green so giving the Green Ranger a black snake would not make sense.
  • Maybe it will be 20 episodes for 2011 and 20 episodes for 2012. They could extend the time when the Gold Ranger arrives (have new episodes between with 2 month breaks). Usually if the series premieres in February, the Sixth Ranger comes around May or July. There is 49 episodes of Shinkenger.
  • Maybe they meant 2 seasons in one year, one in the spring and one in next fall. Because I have noticed Nickelodeon only orders 20 episodes per show at first. Victorious has 20 episodes and only 9 have aired so far. And iCarly has had irregular 'seasons.'
  • Or maybe they said 2 years but maybe they meant that by the upcoming movie, maybe extend the distribution of the episodes like Nickeledeon do with iCarly, 2 or 3 episodes per month. And probably start the Goseiger adaption by late 2012.

Will they still be using the female red ranger?

Psowill, I believe so since the casting call asked for a 'princess' and 'princess' was the nick name of the female Red in Shinkenger. And she IS in the footage, like four episodes or so, so why not? But I would love is for Bandai America to release her figure, at least in a set.

:) Ah cool. yeah I would love to see a matching set. lol Be interesting if Mcfarlane figures did some power ranger figures.

@Psowill, Bandai Japan modeled S.I.C. after McFarlane so maybe they can bring it to America.

Soooo... Yes! Samurai! So gramatically wrong! Yeah, we've seen how nick published avatar and iCarly in 20 episode seasons, which made new eps way more wishable. I also think that 2 year samurai can help goseiger for 20th anniversary, since colors and suits match a lot... Or maybe they will keep it for 25th anniversay, who knows...

All i hope is they do like they did with avatar: always keep the episodes in "to be continued" so peopole will wish more the new ep and more peopole will watch it!
