LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Saban Brands and Nickelodeon will debut the 22nd season of the iconic Power Rangers franchise, Power Rangers Dino Charge, on Saturday, Feb. 7, at 12 p.m. (ET/PT). Premiering on Nickelodeon, the new season will deliver more dino-charged action and adventure than ever before, with an out-of-this-world storyline and an epic new team of Rangers. New episodes from this larger-than-life season will continue to air every Saturday at 12 p.m. on Nickelodeon in the U.S., with encore episodes airing Sundays at 8 a.m. on Nickelodeon and Saturdays at 7 p.m. on Nicktoons. The dinosaur theme has always been the strongest for Saban's Power Rangers franchise from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Power Rangers Dino Thunder, priming this newest season to become a fan-favorite with the return to the popular theme for the first time in over 10 years.
In Power Rangers Dino Charge, an alien entrusted powerful Energems to 10 dinosaurs, but when the dinosaurs went extinct, the Energems were lost. Now, an intergalactic bounty hunter is determined to reclaim the Energems and rule the universe, destroying our planet in the process. A new team of Power Rangers must find the lost Energems and use their Dino Chargers to power up an arsenal of dino-fueled weapons, zords and Megazords to save the world!
"Power Rangers Dino Charge will bring fans an action-filled story packed with all-new monsters, villains, weapons, and of course, Power Rangers," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. "We know our fans will love what we have in store with this all-new dino-themed season."
"It's really great to be back with Power Rangers. I'm humbled to be part of a show that continues to capture the hearts of so many kids, even after 20+ years," said Executive Producer, Power Rangers Dino Charge, Judd "Chip" Lynn. "I've been involved in a lot of seasons, but for Power Rangers Dino Charge, we're pushing the limits, going to places and times we've never visited before, with some unexpected storylines and dino-charged plot twists!"
The new team of Dino Charge Rangers includes: Tyler, the Red Ranger (Brennan Mejia), Koda, the Blue Ranger (Yoshi Sudarso), Shelby, the Pink Ranger (Camille Hyde), Chase, the Black Ranger (James Davies) and Riley, the Green Ranger (Michael Taber).
