Power Rangers Samurai Officially Picked Up By Nickelodeon Canada
Power Ranger Samurai is now confirmed to air on Nickelodeon Canada as a premiere on Friday, February 11 at 8 p.m. ET. Oddly, despite the primetime premiere, Corus Entertainment neglected to mention Power Ranger Samurai in their February highlights entirely. Samurai will be the first series since 2001’s Time Force to not air on Family Channel in Canada. This is due to the change in ownership, originally going to Disney, and now back to Saban.
The press site Corus created gives the description of the series as:
Power Rangers Samurai, features action-filled storylines and a new cast of Rangers, never-before-seen villains, and follows five Rangers who must master the ancient Samurai Symbols of Power which give them control over the elements of Fire, Water, Sky, Forest and Earth. Under the guidance of their all-knowing Samurai mentor, Ji, and with the aid of their devoted animal Zords (Lion, Dragon, Ape, Turtle and Bear), they battle to save Earth from the dark forces of the Netherworld led by the evil Master Xandred.
Honestly, I don’t feel Nickelodeon Canada is a big enough venue for the series. But as I mentioned previously there isn’t really a suitable home for it.
Thanks to commentator Victor for pointing this out!
