POWER RANGERS: New Film & TV Series In Development From END OF THE F***ING WORLD Creator Jonathan Entwistle

While we've known a reboot was in the works since December, it looks like Hasbro is heading in a slightly different direction, with Jonathan Entwistle now set to develop both a new film and a TV series!

The Hollywood Reporter has learned today that Hasbro and Entertainment One have enlisted Jonathan Entwistle (The End of the F***ing World; I Am Not Okay with This) to develop both a new Power Rangers film and television series, with him also expected to direct both projects. 

Entwistle has been attached to the Power Rangers reboot since last December when it was still over at Paramount, but with Hasbro having acquired eOne late last year, the responsibilities have now shifted to their in-house production company, and Enwistle has become even more directly involved with the development of what's said to be a shared universe.

Nothing is confirmed just yet, but it's hard not to wonder if Entwistle may be planning an adaptation of the "Shattered Grid" arc from the popular BOOM! Studios comics, as he's expected to serve as a conductor of a connected story universe that will bridge across multiple platforms.

Jonathan has an incredible creative vision for this iconic and hugely successful franchise, and is hands down the right architect to join us as we reimagine the television and film worlds of this property. Across our slate, we are looking forward to working with the most talented storytellers as we take on Hasbro’s rich fan-favourite brands and build entertainment universes around them.,” said Nick Meyer, President, Film, eOne and Michael Lombardo, President, Global Television, eOne in a joint statement. 

Entwistle also expressed his excitement in a brief statement of his own before taking to Twitter to tease the upcoming projects, “This is an unbelievable opportunity to deliver new Power Rangers to both new and existing generations of awaiting and adoring fans. We’ll bring the spirit of analog into the future, harnessing the action and storytelling that made this brand a success. I’m looking forward to working with the teams at eOne and Hasbro. Together, we can’t wait to share more Power Rangers with the world very soon.” 

With Entwistle working on a completely original series, it remains to be seen what this may mean for the future of Power Rangers on TV. For now, fans can still look forward to Power Rangers Dino Fury, which will contain the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth seasons of the long-running show, respectively.
