THE POWER Rangers are back with their Netflix 30th Anniversary Special titled Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always.
Though some former cast members have not returned, Power Ranger fans will be pleased to recognize a few familiar faces.
Who is in the cast of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always?
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always premiered on Netflix on April 19, 2023.
The Anniversary Special will reunite some of Power Ranger’s notable characters. It will also pay tribute to the late Thuy Trang and the late Jason David Frank, both of whom have died since the reunion was announced.
Let’s take a look at the cast that will dominate the reunion:
Walter Jones as Zack
Walter Jones, reprising his role as The Black Ranger, is a recurring face for the 30th special.
Jones has had quite a few movie credits under his belt since appearing on the original Might Morphin Power Rangers show.
He has been in NYPD Blue, Star Trek: Captain Pike, House Party and CSI.
Steve Cardenas as Rocky
Steve Cardenas, aka The Red Ranger, will also return for MMPR: Once & Always.
Since Cardena’s debut as The Red Ranger, the alum has appeared in a number of shows in the Power Ranger franchise, including Power Rangers Turbo (1997) and Power Rangers Ninja Steel (2018).

Catherine Sutherland as Kat
Many may recognize Sutherland’s character, The Pink Ranger, who replaced the original Pink Ranger, portrayed by Amy Jo Johnson.
When Jo Johnson announced she wouldn’t be returning for the reunion, Sutherland was confirmed as the official Pink Ranger for the Netflix special.
Like Cardenas, Sutherland has starred in a number of Power Rangers spinoffs, including her most recent appearance in the 2021 miniseries Power Rangers: Shattered Past.
Charlie Kersh as Minh
New to the Power Rangers franchise is Charlie Kersh, who plays Minh, Trini, aka the Yellow Ranger’s Daughter.
Original Yellow Ranger actress Thuy Trang died in a tragic car accident in 2001. In honor of her character, Kersh will carry on her legacy.
Before MMPR: Once & Always, the 17-year-old actress starred in Happyish, Clique Wars and The Danger Misfits.
Kersh is also a Taekwondo Xtreme Martial Arts Work Champion.
Karan Ashley as Aisha
Much like Sutherland, Karan Ashley replaced the late Thuy Trang in the original Might Morphin Power Rangers series.
With almost 30 years of experience, Ashley has made a name for herself.
Aside from being known as The Yellow Ranger, Ashley has also appeared on Kenan & Kel, Class Dismissed, One on One and The Steve Harvey Show.
Johnny Yong Bosch as Adam
Another Black Ranger is coming to town. Bosch has secured a spot in the new Power Rangers movie.
In the original series, he replaced Walter Jones in the second season. Since then he has been a widely known voice actor with over 400 films linked to his name.
Some credits include Sailor Moon, Naruto and many other anime series. Bosch also addresses video games like the Final Fantasy franchise.
David Yost as Billy
Like the return of many original cast members, David Yost has reclaimed his place as The Blue Ranger.
Yost told Forbes he’s looking forward to reuniting with his peers.
Yost said, “It was so much fun to work with Walter Jones again and kind of relive how this all started for both of us because we’ve been through so much together in the original line-up.”
To date, Yost has appeared in a variety of Power Rangers spin-offs, including the 2023 Power Rangers Dino Fury.
