Cosmic Fury Theme and New Info

It had to be the first day of school (I am a teacher) that they had the biggest news on Cosmic Fury, now set to premiere on September 29, 2023 internationally on Netflix. Entertainment Weekly revealed the opening theme song for the first episode.

The biggest news for fans is that David Yost will indeed be joining the team as the MM Blue Ranger and mentor. There is a shot of him piloting the wolf zord. 

Here is the main cast, with Javi's cybernetic arm. 

Jacqueline Joe (Fern) has also joined the cast. 

\Lord Zedd's footsoliders who are original to the shows and not from Kyuranger. The helmets were first shown on Simon Bennett's social media earlier. 

The villain in the center is American-created.

The Tsuyoindavers were superior commanders from Kyuranger.

Power Rangers Kid Costumes (Beast Morphers, Dino Fury)


Beast Morphers has the regular costume, deluxe costume, and the toddler ones with a face mask. Also, Red in his power-up form.

As for Dino Fury, there is only Red, Blue, and Pink. Also Toddler costumes for Red and Blue. That I can tell there is no black, green, or gold so far. The costumes usually show up by April or May, no costumes have shown up for Cosmic Fury yet. But they could still show up for Halloween.

Power Rangers Amounts of Episodes (1993-2023)

 The episode counts went down from each era, Saban Entertainment to Disney to Saban Brands and then to Hasbro. Each season has gone down, the Saban Brands and Hasbro seasons I am counting as one season except for Cosmic Fury because of its small episode count, the same as Aquitar.

145 Episodes - MMPR
50 Episodes - Zeo
45 Episodes - Turbo and Lost Galaxy
44 - Samurai, Dino Charge, Ninja Steel, Beast Morphers, Dino Fury
43 - In Space
42 - Megaforce (both seasons)
40 - Wild Force, Time Force, Lightspeed Rescue
38 - SPD, Dino Thunder, Ninja Storm
32 - RPM, Jungle Fury, Mystic Force, Operation Overdrive
10 - Aquitar, Cosmic Fury 

Interesting note:
Most PR seasons are shorter than the Sentai season they adapted, the most notable being Aquitar/Kakuranger and Cosmic Fury/Kyuranger. There are some seasons that have more episodes than the sentai itself, for example, MMPR season 1 had 60 episodes while Zyuranger had 59, mostly because they used Zyu2 footage. MMPR season 2 had 52 episodes while Dairanger had 50, because of Zyu2 and also the use of recycled footage and the episodes produced in Australia during the filming of the movie. Zeo had 50 episodes while Ohranger had 48, probably because they used the movie and teamup footage.

Super Sentai Amount of Episodes #2 (1975-2022)

 This is the updated version of one I did in 2011. Goranger had 84 episodes, Changeman had 55 episodes, Kakuranger had 53 episodes, and Battle Fever J had 52 episodes. There are 52 weeks in a year so it makes sense most series are 52 or less. 12 series had 51 episodes, 13 series had 50 episodes, 6 series had 49 episodes, 7 had 48 episodes, and 2 had 47 episodes. Goranger had the most, JAKQ had the least, and Changeman had the second most episodes. I think Kingohger might have 48 or 49. Here is a new chart. 

Super Sentai Pie Chart 1975-2022

52 and more - 8.9%
51 - 26.7%
50 - 28.9%
49 - 13.3%
48 - 15.6%
47 or less - 6.7%

51 Episodes: Denjiman, Dynaman, Bioman, Maskman, Turboranger, Jetman, Megaranger, Timerager, Gaoranger, Hurricanger, Lupinranger Vs Patrenger, Gokaiger
50 Episodes: Go-Busters, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Goseiger, Go-Onger, Flashman, Abaranger, Dekaranger, Sun Vulcan, Goggle V, Gingaman, GoGoV, Donbrothers
49 Episodes: Liveman, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger, Shinkenger, Zenkaiger
48 Episodes: Fiveman, Ohranger, Carranger, Kyoryuger, Ryusoulger, Zyuohger, Kyuranger
47 Episodes: Toqger, Ninninger. 
The majority of the series (13) has 50 episodes. Second is 12 series that have 51 episodes, and third is 7 series with 48 episodes.

Power Rangers Leaving New Zealand and Cosmic Fury Speculations

UPDATED 7/9/23

 I haven't been writing much on this blog lately I've had it for over 16 years. I am not part of the Power Rangers fandom, given I make Power Rangers TikTok videos practically every day. I wanted to address the discussions on Twitter about Cosmic Fury and with Producer Simon Bennett. Specifically, the negative reception and concerns on how Hasbro is handling the lack of promotion for Cosmic Fury. Now it has been announced officially that Power Rangers will no longer be filming in New Zealand. Fans have speculated this for a while, also given that Simon Bennett recently mentioned he would no longer do Power Rangers after Cosmic Fury.

Fans have been doomsday-ing this as the complete end of Power Rangers, but rumors are Power Rangers will now be filmed in Canada. Hasbro has studios in Canada and it has been known for a while that Jonathan Entwistle and Jenny Klein will be working on a new movie and/or series for Power Rangers. Fans have guessed it will not require Sentai footage. Some fans are speculating it will be a Young Adult series, not aiming for the same audience as usual. In other words, we are pretty much in the dark about what is coming for 2024. But I am not doomsday-ing, I am sure there will be more Power Rangers coming our way, one way or another. And as for the negative response to Cosmic Fury, like lack of promotion, quality of toys, or the suits, I am not going to judge anything until it is released on Netflix and until everything is said and done. 

Regardless of how we feel about speculations and optics (promotion), I believe fans should just keep their opinions to themselves after the show has been released. But that's just my opinion. Naysayers are going to do exactly that, naysay. And I am not above it all. I have been guilty of expressing uncouth opinions before. None of us are perfect. 

So this is what we know for sure now

  • New Zealand out, Canada in?
  • Cosmic Fury will be the last season of Power Rangers for Simon Bennett
  • Cosmic Fury airing internationally on Netflix in  August
  • Fern will be the Orange Ranger
Other little things of curiosity:
Power Rangers stop shooting at the studios they filmed at in New Zealand last year, after the second season of Dino Fury. They began shooting at a new location, rebuilding sets, and making sets for Once and Always. Most likely Hasbro was planning to release something from Joanthan Entwistle and Jenny Klein earlier than sooner and was planning to leave New Zeland in 2022 but because of COVID, costs, and delays, most likely they decided to double-down and do Cosmic Fury to fill the gap. Or maybe, Hasbro saw how much it would cost to continue filming in New Zealand and decided to move to Canada. Hasbro has been letting go of personnel and downsizing and the fact that they are still working on Power Rangers means a lot. I am not too worried about the future of Power Rangers. I am curious and actually looking forward to Cosmic Fury. 

My own zany ideas:
Bandai America would make extra zord toys that weren't on the show and here is my rendition of a beige crab. It is inspired by some Dream AI App simulations I did. The Kyuranger crab kyutama was pink-red but I made it look like the Zenith Ranger.

The mystery of the Thunderzord Cockpits

Ranger Retrocenter ( has revealed a pic of Jason David Frank in a green cockpit that hasn't been seen on the show.

This pic has rotated a lot of the first cast in an unknown cockpit and it has the same triangle on the front. Some are thinking it might've been the first cockpit for Thunder Megazord that was never used before and looks a lot like the one for Tommy. It is hard to tell but maybe the front is green even though it looks blue in the pic. Also, the back looks black but maybe it was green. This could be the same cockpit. Ranger Retrocenter had uncovered a call sheet saying they were shooting footage of the Thunder Megazord cockpit with the six Rangers including Tommy. 

Here is the cockpit we did get and the triangle is yellow. It is possible they changed it. It is unknown why this change was made. According to stunt coordinator, Jeff P. says this footage only took a day to film.

Curious enough Boom Comics has the main center triangle as red and not yellow.
