Power Rangers Samurai Officially Picked Up By Nickelodeon Canada

GO GO POWER RANGER

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!

  1. Considering that YTV & Nick Canada love to share programming, I wouldn’t be surprised if Power Rangers ended up back on YTV soon enough.

      That would be really ironic, especially considering how MMPR was cancelled due to parent complaints of it being too violent.

      This is great news either way!

    This is excellent news! Good move Course Entertainment, glad to see they are once again open to the series. Hopefully it helps boost Nick Canada subscription rate.

    • With Power Rangers Samurai on Nick Canada, they’ll (for sure) treat it with much more respect than Family did with the recent Disney-produced Power Rangers series.

      • That’s for certain Marc. Just look at the premieres, Family used to shove the show to 6AM weekend slots. Here Nickelodeon Canada is giving it prime time real estate (sure, it is Friday, but still).

    and it runs directly against Teletoon’s “Superfan Fridays” block. (against the airing of ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’, to be exact.)

    And yes, I’m happy that Power Rangers is in good hands, so to speak.
