Power Rangers: RPM[1] is the title for the 2009 season of Power Rangers. It is based on Engine Sentai Go-Onger.

Synopsis

In the near future, the mysterious and sinister Venjix Computer Network is attempting to conquer and lay ruin to the entire planet. Mankind has retreated into environmentally-shielded domed cities to protect against the pollution and machines unleashed by Venjix. In the shining city of Corinth, an elite force of Rangers must learn to drive and operate an arsenal of radically advanced biotech vehicles in order to battle the attacking machine army bent on world domination.

Production History

Power Rangers R.P.M will be the first P.R season since 2005 to have a fresh lead producer, as Bruce Kalish departed in 2008. It was speculated by some fans that R.P.M may not have been an option if the proposed animated series pilot had not fallen through.

In September 2008, plot details of R.P.M were leaked out, as were four sample tracks of theme songs for the opening title sequence. Action figures were also found in e-bay.

Possible Gold and Silver rangers to appear in the series.

Recently, reports from fandom sources revealed that the original executive producer for RPM, Eddie Guzelian, was fired mid-season by his superiors, breifly throwing the season into dissarray. A new executive producer has since replaced him. Rumoured casualties of Guzelian's reign were Jackie Marchand, who was either fired or left on her own power

The 2nd Megazord has been referred to in the toyline as both Valvemax and Velocimax Megazord. There has yet to be confirmation which of the names will be used in the show.
