In Real Life's Chance Perez Lands Role As The Black Power Ranger


The Power Rangers franchise is back with a new season and new cast!

The 28th season of the franchise is titled Power Rangers Dino Fury and while there is a new group of Power Rangers, there is one face that may look familiar.

Chance Perez, formally of the boy band In Real Life which formed on ABC's Boy Band, will grace your screens in 2021 as the Black Ranger!

The Southern California native is stepping off the stage for a minute and onto a TV set to play the Black Ranger, Javi.

While we are still learning the latest about the new season, we know that playing a Power Ranger is a dream come true for Chance!

"I’ve been watching Power Rangers ever since I was little kid," Chance exclusively tells iHeartRadio. "Kicking and punching the air, swinging the sabers and wishing I was really a ranger... Man, I never thought it’d become a reality. Happy doesn’t even come close to covering how I feel now that I’m a part of this wonderful franchise"

According to Entertainment Weekly, Dino Furry "gets a modern update with a prehistoric twist when an army of powerful alien beings is unleashed on Earth, threatening life as we know it. A brand-new team of Power Rangers, fueled by the prehistoric power of the dinosaurs, are recruited to deal with the threat."

Power Rangers Dino Fury will premiere in early 2021 on Nickelodeon. Check out the official trailer below.
