Power Rangers in Space (often abbreviated as PRIS or referred to as simply In Space) is a television show that aired in 1998 as the sixth season of the Power Rangers franchise. It was the first full series to be handled by producers Judd Lynn and Jonathan Tzachor.
It was loosely based on, and involved footage from, the Japanese television show Denji Sentai Megaranger, the twenty-first Super Sentai series. However, due to miscommunication between America and Japan as to the contents of the sentai show, much of the space footage is original to the American adaptation. In Space was a turning point for the Power Rangers franchise, as the season brought closure to six seasons of plot, and it ended the practice of having regular cast members act in consecutive seasons. The theme of the series bears little similarity to its Sentai counterpart and its successor, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
Though its initial tone was similar to that of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers in Space eventually took a darker, more emotional turn.
The season was created with the idea of it being the final season in the franchise, but ratings were higher than ever, and there was enough support for the franchise to continue on.
