Saban Brands announced on Monday that it has renewed its partnership with Nickelodeon until 2021. Nickelodeon is currently airing Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, the second season sequel to the Power Rangers Ninja Steel series, and the 25th entry in the Power Rangers franchise. The series premiered on January 27. The series uses footage from Toei's ninja-themed Shuriken Sentai Ninninger series, which premiered in February 2015, and marks the 40th anniversary of Toei's Super Sentai franchise. A Power Rangers film opened in the United States last March. The film earned an estimated US$84,234,169 in the United States and a worldwide total of about US$140 million. The film's director Dean Israelite reported last summer that Lionsgate and Saban were in talks for a sequel.
