It’s almost been 30 years of seeing the color-coded superheroes we grew up loving on our screens. Power Rangers is one of the longest-running shows in the history of television, and it deserves to be celebrated by fans and Rangers alike. There are rumblings of Season 30 being the final season before Jonathan Entwhistle ushers us into the new universe. Seeing that there may be many returning Rangers joining the original Blue Ranger David Yost, we may be in for a special treat in this “Power Rangers Endgame”. We’re not the only ones excited, Dino Charge Red Ranger Brennan Mejia can’t wait to see what’s in store for the 30th anniversary.
Brennan Wants To See The OGs return
We had the privilege of interviewing Brennan Meija, he shared his hopes for what he’d like for the upcoming 30th season.
“Brennan Mejia: Honestly, I’d like to throw on my nostalgia glasses and see some of the OG MMPR guys jump back in there. Whether it’s like all of them on some capacity, at least cameoing so we get a couple episodes, or even one episode of like, this is Kimberly’s episode, this is Billy’s episode or whatever. And then you have like the mentor be whoever the heck, I don’t care. But I feel like you got to, it comes full circle. And there’s so many revivals and reboots right now going on. Teen Wolf, they’re doing a movie again or something.”– Brennan Mejia
Reunions, revivals, and reboots in some cases have generated a trend of bringing back actors as fan favorites or “OGs” as the youths would say. While some can argue that the trend is oversaturated fan service and may even be right sometimes, it’s fun to see actors return as characters that are adored by fans. Let’s face it, we are suckers for nostalgia. Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Cobra Kai can attribute a significant fraction of their success to catering to original generations of fans.
We asked Brennan if he’s saying that he’d like to see a season focused around those original Rangers in the 30th anniversary and just fanfare in general. Here’s what he had to say.
“Brennan Mejia: Yeah. Or at least heavily drawing upon them. Whether the entire season focuses on them or maybe, I don’t know, like some alternate dimension. They get pulled into a world and they are now the mentors to the Mighty Morphin Rangers who are our different cast though.”– Brennan Meija
What We Can Expect To See
As I stated earlier, David Yost is returning as Billy, the original Blue Ranger, other returning Rangers will be joining him. It’s worth mentioning that a revived Lord Zedd is still out there, most of us are convinced that he’s being set up to be the primary antagonist for Season 30. Either way, MMPR must have some presence in the 30th anniversary in some capacity.
Speaking for myself personally, I’d like to see more Rangers return apart from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, like Ryan or Joel from Lightspeed Rescue, Jen from Time Force, RJ from Jungle Fury, and literally any ranger from RPM among others. I just hope we don’t see another “Legendary Battle” from the season that shall not be named.
But I must say, Power Rangers History has proven that “final seasons” end up being the best that the franchise has to offer. MMPR(Season One, “Doomsday”), In Space, Wild Force, and RPM were all originally meant to conclude the series, and those turned out to be amazing. Power Rangers finds a way to reach its full potential whenever it’s at the “end of the line”, so with that in mind, we can all look forward to what’s to come in Power Rangers Season 30.
