The New Saban Era (also called the Saban Brands Era), is the unofficial term that refers to the seasons of Power Rangers that were produced after Saban reacquired the franchise from Disney in 2010. The New Saban Era began in February 2011, and is the current era of Power Rangers, broadcasting on Nickelodeon.
As part of Saban's partnership with Nickelodeon, individual seasons generally consist of a total of 22 episodes, a regular 20 episode run split into two 10 episode halves, along with a Halloween and Christmas special.

Following the end of production of Power Rangers RPM in 2009, Disney canceled the series. In 2010 they aired a "re-versioning" of the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It included a restored picture, but poorly received graphics that appeared throughout an episode that were reminiscent of those seen in the Transformers Generation 2 cartoon that aired in the early 1990s. In response, Saban reacquired the franchise in May 2010. After reacquiring the franchise, production on Power Rangers Samurai began a few months later, and began airing on Nickelodeon in February 2011. Saban Brands has renewed their partnership with Nickelodeon through 2016.
- Although production has remained in New Zealand, the actors for the Rangers are once again cast in the United States.
