26th Power Ranger Season revealed: Beast Morphers

The first season under the new partnership between Saban and Hasbro will be called Power Rangers Beast Machines, to premiere in 2019 on Nickelodeon. According to Jason Bischoff and the description in the press release, the series will be based on the 2012 Super Sentai Go-Busters. Many fans love the series and some were upset when it was not adapted in 2015 but Kyouruger (2013) was adapted instead as Power Rangers Dino Charge. With a name like 'Beast Morphers' one would think it would be Zyuohger (2016) which was about animals as well. "Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun." 

I like the logo design and the bottom logo (Beast Morphers) but not much the above logo (Power Rangers design doesn't match). I am still in shock. I was not expecting this. I was expecting Kyuranger (2017). Also that if they split this season in two, there is not much toys to release, I am guessing Hasbro will release a bunch more. I guess they can make toy-only zords and some more battlizer upgrades.

Sentai that has not YET been adapted after 2012:
2012 - Go-Busters
2014 - Toqger
2016 - Zyuohger
2017 - Kyuranger
2018 - Lupinranger vs Patranger

Wait, really? Because I've seen a tweet saying that they are doing Kyuranger as the next season. Weird...

MKDemigodZ Warrior, I believe the tweet was from Nick with a picture of Kyuranger from Morphin Legacy.
