2 years on Nickelodeon (22 episodes reported for 2013 and another 22 for 2014). Thanks to Ranger Crew for the logo and poster!
VPO Press Release reveals:
"Power Rangers Megaforce introduces a plot line that is sure to captivate audiences with exciting new characters, villains, and high-octane action. The new series features Gosei, a supernatural guardian who for centuries, has protected the earth with his robotic aide, Tensou. But when the evil Warstar aliens begin their massive invasion, Gosei calls upon five teenagers with attitude to form the ultimate team...the Power Rangers Megaforce! In addition to defending earth against the Warstar aliens, other monstrous factions emerge to challenge the Megaforce Rangers. Under the leadership of a malevolent alien, toxic beasts rise from their slimy underground lair to attack the Earth and a ruthless robot army launches an offensive from their deep sea compound. In order to face these new threats, the Power Rangers Megaforce unlock powerful battle modes to fight their adversaries."
"Power Rangers continues to delight fans of all ages, even nearly 20 years after it was first introduced to kids across the world," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands."
Ira Mayer reported on his Twitter:
"Saban Brands acquiring the 4Kids Saturday morning Kids TV block subject to court approval."
Saban Brands first went after the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise, so it seems that they want CW4Kids and it may or may not air on theCW. Nickeldeon seems to have them in a lock to show for 2 years. So if they move to 4kids, they don't have to do one theme for two years.
Power Rangers Megaforce has Red, Blue, Black, Pink and Yellow Rangers. They use cards in their morphers. They have zords Dragon, Shark, Snake, Phoenix and Tiger.
"It sounds like they're trying to recapture lightning in a bottle and set up a premise akin to the original Mighty Morphin series with "five teenagers with attitude". I got a chuckle out of the presumably Zordon-esque mentor named Gosei, but I'm hoping his "robotic aide" Tensou is either an original component or else based on Gosei Knight. Brining in Datas would just be asking for trouble."

Hotwheels will also have a line of Power Rangers cars:
DVD cover art for the TimeLife Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Lost Galaxy were released but I do not know if I am allowed to post them. It was designed by JC Alcantara.

Lavender Ranger's thoughts of the logo:The poster is really awesome. But the 'Megaforce' part of the logo's font is too generic, it reminds me of the logos they use in bootleg merchandise. I remember a fan saying that the title reminded them of a bootleg toy. Interesting that the Korean 'Power Rangers Miracle Force' logo looks better.
