Power Rangers Zeo (often abbreviated as PRZ, and often simply called Zeo) is an American superhero television series and the fourth installment of the Power Rangers franchise that is a continuation of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, that aired in 1996.
It is based on the Super Sentai series Chouriki Sentai Ohranger. Power Rangers Zeo is the first series in Power Rangers that is part of the annual Ranger suit change to match the annual change of the Super Sentai series.
Power Rangers Zeo immediately begins after the events of Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers where Tommy and the other Rangers witness the destruction of the Command Center. After recovering, the powerless Rangers discovered the Zeo Crystal intact in the rubble – apparently dropped by Goldar and Rito Revolto. The Zeo Crystal guided them to a portal, which took them deep underground to the heretofore unmentioned Power Chamber. There, they found Zordon and Alpha 5 waiting for them. The team was bestowed with the five Zeonizers empowered by the Zeo Crystal. Tanya Sloan joined the team as Zeo Ranger II — Yellow, while Billy Cranston became their technical advisor.
All of this occurred as the Machine Empire entered Earth's solar system. So powerful, even Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd were forced to flee from them to the M51 Galaxy or be destroyed. Led by King Mondo and Queen Machina, the Machine Empire sought to conquer Earth. Armed with new weapons and Zords, only the Zeo Rangers stood in their way. Unbeknownst to anyone, Rito and Goldar – now amnesic – were left behind on Earth. They were taken in by Bulk and Skull, who had them serving at their beck and call. Bulk and Skull, meanwhile, continued to be members of the Junior Police Force until Lt. Stone was fired. Quitting as a show of support, they joined him at his new detective agency.
