Cynopsis: Kids! is now confirming previous reports which suggested that Power Rangers Samurai would have three specials. Earlier this month, Marvista promotional material appeared on Rangerboard implying that there would be three Power Rangers Samurai specials, and a grand total of 44 episodes. In addition to confirming that there are three specials, Cynopsis: Kids! has provided episode titles and descriptions.

  • Party Monsters – a scare-fest when the creepiest monsters from beyond get together for party and trade stories about their battles with the Rangers.
  • Christmas Together, Friends Forever – the Rangers reflect on their first year together as a team and learn about the spirit of the season.
  • The Clash of the Red Rangers – a crossover special where the Samurai Rangers team with the mysterious RPM Rangers Red fend off the dual threat from Master Xandred’s Mooger army and robotic super-villain from the RPM Ranger’s dimension.  When something goes awry, the two Red Rangers turn on one another and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. 

Party Monsters and Christmas Together, Friends Forever are each half–hour specials, while The Clash of the Red Rangers, is an hour long special; it is believed that The Clash of the Red Rangers is being counted as two individual episodes, hence the increase from 43 episodes total to 44 episodes total. Additionally, it is also believed that Party Monsters will debut on October 29, 2011 to coincide with the weekend of Halloween. Such a premiere would further reinforce previous statements that Nickelodeon has ordered two 20 episode seasons of Power Rangers Samurai to be cablecast over the course of 2011 and 2012 respectively.

Today, Saban Brands officially began announcing that new episodes of Power Rangers Samurai would begin on October 1, 2011. Earlier today, an official Saban Brands spokesperson posted the following quote on Rangerboard, Twitter, and other social media outlets.

Are you ready for new episodes? Power Rangers Samurai returns with new episodes Saturday Oct. 1st at 12n/11c only on Nickelodeon!

The comment went on to note that new episodes would continue to premiere for five consecutive weeks. Furthermore, tentative titles for four of those five episodes were previously reported by Power Rangers On–Air Central, with the fifth episode still unnamed. At this point in time, it’s also worth pointing out that there are five Saturdays in the month of October this year, which may have played a role in Nickelodeon’s scheduling decision. Additionally, it should be noted that once the five new episodes are shown, there will only be 19 new episodes of Power Rangers Samurai left; 22 (new episodes) if the total episode count is 43.
