Power Rangers 2013 Casting Postponed!: So what are we gonna do, Saban?

Major shocking news (that came out two days ago)! It looks like Saban has postoned casting for the next Power Rangers series (which will be in 2013), because they plan on doing something major. Check out this letter from Iris Hampton (casting director for Power Rangers) that was sent out to casting agencies:

POWER RANGERS (Memo from Iris Hampton)
Non-Union Episodic

Dear all agents who participated in the Power Ranger casting process,

We want to express our sincere thanks to your clients who recently auditioned for Power Rangers’ 2013 season and provide you with a quick update. Since we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary season in 2013, we have decided to elevate the season’s creative to entirely new heights. This will require us to commence production in 2012 rather than 2011. We hope that the great talent we met during our recent auditions will still be available when we recommence casting and promise that you will be the first to know when that will occur. At this time, we plan to resume the casting process March to early April 2012.

With kind regards and respect,

Iris Hampton
Power Ranger Casting Director

So, what does all this mean? I’m not sure. Some people think this is an indication that they’re skipping ahead to Go-Kaiger, others think they might just be trying to do something new with the Goseiger footage. Either way, they’ve got big plans, and those of you that may have missed the previous casting session could have a second chance next March/April.

And this is just a side note, but one of the big problems with skipping to Go-Kaiger will be accounting for the 15 other Sentais that came out before (or in the cases of Dairanger and Goseiger, before and after) Power Rangers. Check back in later to see my proposal for what Saban could do to correct that.

  1. i have a 6 yo son chris half greek half chinese is he a bit young to audition for anything to do with power rangers ?

    1. No, US auditions are over and done with, and they already have a cast picked out, and have already started filming. Sorry, you’re just going to have to wait until they’re done with Megaforce, which most likely won’t be for another two years (sometime between late spring and late summer 2014). Just keep checking back here between now and then, there should be some news between now and then.

  2. hello my sons name is christos he is 5yo he loves the power rangers he would like togo to japan one day? but anyway if there is any auditions in australia or anything at all about power rangers would u kindley let us know. thxs

    1. They held some auditions in Australia and New Zealand about a month after they started casting in the US. Auditions for the new season are over I believe, not sure if I remember seeing anything about them auditioning roles for young children, but keep looking. It’s not uncommon for them to have episodes featuring little kids. You might have to go to New Zealand though…

  3. I would like to audition for the new power rangers. Please email me at nalsome@ hotmail.com for more info. Thank you.

    1. Sorry, these round of auditions are over. You can check that out here: https://henshinhead.wordpress.com/2012/05/02/new-power-rangers-season-20-casting-breakdowns-comfirmed-im-back-and-i-brought-you-a-present/

      But you can always prepare for the next round (there is very little doubt there won’t be another chance) by reading this: https://henshinhead.wordpress.com/2011/12/17/notice-to-anyone-looking-for-info-on-the-next-round-of-power-rangers-auditions/ (You might want to skip to the second half of the post).

      Better luck next time.

  4. If they are casting for a Gokaiger adaptation instead of Goseiger then I’m definitely trying out(would have either way but still). I’ll be an awesome man… in silver(literally). Please if you find out if it’s the Pirated version or even however they adapt Goseiger and how to audition of course can’t forget that… let me know, Dōmo arigatō gozaimashita.

    1. They were doing it through various casting agencies and breakdown services, but since they’ve postponed any auditions until next year, I doubt any of it will work. Sorry. My only suggestion at the moment is to just keep checking in here over the next few months. I promise you that if I find out anything about it, I will let everyone know ASAP.

      Just try to hold on until then!

  5. Please e-mail me on more information about the casting call interview on the next season. I like to be a part of it. Acting is also one of my hobby.
