The return of past cast members is one of the most popular anniversary concepts for next year. Last month, I asked fans on RangerCrew on what they considered more important: Cameos or Story. The obvious answer was both but most fans prefer cameos with the expectation that Power Rangers will always have a below par storyline. As much as I would love a healthy dose of story, past cameos, and great respect for the past seasons, it’s tough to tell how successful Power Rangers Super Megaforce will be in the limited 20 episodes.

The casting team has reached out to cast members at Power Morphicon and the past few months to make an appearance in Power Rangers Super Megaforce. There is no confirmation on whether they will have Gokaiger-like cameo roles or if they are chosen to be a group of past cast members in the background. They have reached out to most of the original Saban-era cast members. One of the cast members (not listed below) informed me that she turned down the opportunity due to the last minute contact and family obligations.

Other cast members (not listed below) have confirmed their roles and keeping the role on the downlow until they are given permission to release the information. The expected film date for the cast members is May 25th and 26th (Invitation Email). Several (not all) of the Disney-season cast members have also been approached.
The production team has started to reach out to the cast members to uninvite them for the anniversary due to the limited budget. They had only allocated enough budget for a set number of cast members. Ten cast members have signed contracts and completed their fitting.

Confirmed Cast Members
Here is the confirmed list that I got from my source. 10 cast members have signed the contracts for the May 25-26 filming shoot. There will be other cast members added to the list. Some cast members are currently going through the visa process before signing contracts. If these cast members don’t sign the contracts, other cast members that are on standby may have the opportunity to sign the contract. I am waiting on confirmation for the 10th cast member before releasing the name.

  • Danny Slavin

  • Melody Perkins

  • Reggie Rolle

  • Selwyn Ward

Valerie Landon (known as Valerie Vernon during the PRLG season) turned down the invitation last month. Valerie was excited to return for the anniversary: “One month wasn’t enough time..especially when you have kids. If I was given two to three months to plan for it I could have gone. I’m so bummed! I was looking forward to seeing some of my old friends! Maybe they’ll do another one soon! I’d love to be in the next one!”

So disappointed that Valarie isn't coming back, but I get her reasons.
