Original MIGHTY MORPHIN Red Ranger Austin St. John Rumored To Return For POWER RANGERS BEAST MORPHERS

Original MIGHTY MORPHIN Red Ranger Austin St. John <font color=red>Rumored</font> To Return For POWER RANGERS BEAST MORPHERS

Here's a hot rumor to take you into the weekend as it's being reported that original Mighty Morphin Red Ranger Austin St. John may be on the verge of an epic return to the Power Rangers franchise.

Seventeen years after the most monumental crossover in Power Rangers history, "Forever Red," it appears the original Red Ranger may finally be ready to return to the franchise he helped build. 

According to the relatively reliable That Hashtag Show, Austin St. John is set to appear in an upcoming team-up episode of Power Rangers Beast Morphers, reprising his iconic role as Jason Lee Scott, the original Mighy Morphin Red Ranger. 

The legendary ranger originally debuted in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers before leaving midway through the second season due to contract disputes. He later returned to play the fan-favorite Gold Ranger in Power Rangers Zeo and also appeared in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie before making his last appearance in 2002's "Forever Red."

If this report proves to be true, it would be quite an achievement for Hasbro, who famously bought the franchise from Saban last year, as it would mark the first time one of the original five cast members has returned in nearly two decades. It could also be a good indicator of what the toy giant has planned for the future as fans could see other Zordon-era Rangers make their own returns to the show down the line. 

The super team-up episode will air sometime in 2020 and is expected to be an adaptation of the one-shot movie, Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends, which is a film that sees all of the Dinosaur-themed Rangers team-up with the Go-Busters (Beast Morphers), meaning, in addition to the Mighty Morphin Red Ranger, the episode could possibly also feature Rangers from the Dino Thunder and Dino Charge teams.

While unconfirmed, THS believes Dino Charge actors Brennan Mejia (Tyler Navarro/Red), Yoshi Sudarso (Koda/Blue), and Davi Santos (Chase Randall/Black) will also appear alongside St. John and the Beast Morphers cast as they've already been spotted in New Zealand.
