It has been two years since a potential Super Sentai series on DVD was teased. However, as Saban Brands sold the entirety of the Power Rangers franchise to Hasbro – along with all their licensing contracts – the future of the Super Sentai series on DVD from Shout! Factory became clouded with doubt and uncertainty. Over the last two years, we were able to confirm that Shout! Factory wanted to continue releasing Super Sentai on DVD, meaning the future was in the hands of Hasbro.
Fast forward to today and Shout! Factory, in partnership with eOne Entertainment (whom Hasbro has transferred all the entertainment side of their business to), is pleased to announce the return of Super Sentai to DVD in North America with the upcoming release of Chikyu Sentai Fiveman!
Fans can pre-order Chikyu Sentai Fiveman: The Complete Series by clicking here. The set will release on September 6th, 2022.
We reached out to Shout! Factory regarding the possibility of future subtitled Super Sentai releases and got the following response:
“We currently have 12 Super Sentai titles in release and Fiveman will be the 13th. Our hope is that we can continue to release more.” – Melissa Boag, EVP, Kids & Family Entertainment – Shout! Factory

Twenty years after their planet was attacked by the brutal Zone Empire, the five Hoshikawa children, who escaped and were raised on Earth, must prepare for a brand-new war. This time, though, they’re ready … having developed the powerful Fiveman technology that will help them defend Earth from the same empire that conquered their home world.
