Power Rangers Universe
Klein will be working with Jonathan Entwistle, creator of The End of the F***ing World, for the reboot. Gabe Marano, the Executive Vice-President of Scripted Television, said:
“Building this partnership with Jenny, whose talent and passion transcends genres, is an exciting moment for us. We believe that her distinctive vision makes her the perfect fit to help us develop Hasbro’s deep library of IP, as well as original projects, and we’re thrilled to have her on board.”
Klein has worked on several projects with a varied range of genres, including Jessica Jones, Supernatural, The Witcher, and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. She signed a two-year contract with Hasbro and Entertainment One.
“eOne is an impressively versatile home to develop original content, and with its incredible toy box to dig into, it’s such an exciting place to be. I couldn’t feel prouder to bring its beloved IP to viewers,” Klein explained.
It’s Morphin’ Time!
Power Rangers has come a long way from its debut in 1993. It became a pop culture phenomenon and an important part of the lives of every 90s kid. Created by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ popularity spread all over Japan and the whole world.
The franchise gave birth to 21 series with 28 seasons, a bunch of comic books, and three live-action films. The merchandise also brought huge profits via toys and video games.
Power Rangers will have its 30th anniversary, and this milestone will be anticipated by fans. Hasbro reached out to the original members of the cast in hopes of returning for the special episode. The comic book version created by BOOM! Studios will also celebrate its 100th issue. The series began in 2016, and it gave fans true-to-the-source material entertainment.
