Breaking news out of SDCC as Austin St. John, the original Red Ranger, will be making his return to the Power Ranger universe. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, however: That Hashtag Show first broke this news in early June!
Today at the Hasbro panel in a dimly lit and extremely packed room, the announcement was made. He will reprise his iconic role as Jason Lee Scott.
Austin will appear in season two of Beast Morphers. A small preview clip was shown, that showed the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers returning. While the original Pink, Blue, and Black Rangers were shown in the clip, The Red Ranger was the only one to remove his helmet. This will be the first time Austin St. John has appeared on Power Rangers since the “Forever Red” episode.
