Power Rangers HyperForce (Sequel to Time Force)
HyperForce is a different specimen from the other seasons on this list as this was a web series. HyperForce is a live Table-top RPG show set in the Power Rangers universe.
The season takes place in the year 3016/3017, sixteen years after the future events seen in Power Rangers Time Force. The season features the Pink Time Force Ranger, Jen Scotts, as the mentor to the HyperForce Rangers who appears periodically. In the season the Rangers take a time ship from the Time Force Academy to chase the Alliance throughout time who seek to revive so of the series’ greatest villains.

HyperForce even featured a new Time Force Ranger, Joe Shih, who was the Silver Time Force Ranger as well as brother to the Red HyperForce Ranger, Marv. Joe eventually joins HyperForce as the Green HyperForce Ranger.
All of the Time Force Rangers appear during the finale after HyperForce Rangers fail in their mission to stop the Alliance from preventing the Z-Wave which destroyed many of the series’ original villains. Unfortunately, HyperForce has yet to be renewed for a second season after the first season concluded in 2017. Hopefully, fans can get a conclusion to the HyperForce storyline in the comics or another form at some point.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers Seasons 1 and 2 (Sequel to RPM)
Beast Morphers‘ source material, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, took heavy inspiration from RPM and Power Rangers as a whole, so when this season was announced its status as an RPM sequel was a popular rumor.
Power Rangers RPM was set in an alternate post-apocalyptic universe where a computer virus named Venjix has taken over the world. A young woman named Doctor K created Venjix in an attempt to escape a government organization known as Alphabet Soup. However, Venjix is accidentally unleashed upon the world, destroying it except for one city; Corinth.
Doctor K is able to create the Ranger Operator Series and form the team seen in RPM. The Ranger Operators are ultimately able to stop Venjix from destroying Corinth, however, in the very last shot of the season, it is revealed that Venjix has inhabited him in one of the Cell Shift Morphers.

Ten years later, Power Rangers Beast Morphers airs and has a similar storyline of an evil computer virus taking over the world, this time in the Prime Universe. It is revealed at the end of the second season that the main villain Evox was actually Venjix from RPM.
Grid Battleforce, the main organization seen in Beast Morphers keeps hold of past Ranger tech including technology seen in RPM. Sometime after Grid Battleforce acquired the RPM tech from the RPM universe, Nate Silva (who later becomes the Grid Battleforce Gold Ranger) is experimenting with old Ranger tech and Snake DNA. Unbeknownst to him, Venjix escapes from the Cell Shift Morpher, merges with the snake DNA becoming Evox, and escapes into Grid Battleforce’s computer system.
Doctor K later comes to the Prime Universe to help Nate come up with a plan to take down her creation once and for all. The Grid Battleforce Rangers are eventually able to take down Vejix/Evox for real this time… hopefully. Colonel Truman also returns in Beast Morphers to take in one of the villains, Scrozzle, after he escaped to the RPM universe.
Power Rangers Dino Fury Seasons 1 and 2 (Sequel to Mighty Morphin Seasons 1-3)
Dino Fury is the most recent season on this list and it features multiple callbacks to characters and storylines from all three seasons of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The first connection is the return of the Morphin Masters who were featured in one episode of the first season of MMPR. The Morphin Masters were also featured in the MMPR 2016 comic series. These characters seem to have much more of a prominent role in Dino Fury as the characters have appeared periodically throughout the first season of Dino Fury.
Lord Zedd, the main villain of seasons 2 and 3 of MMPR also returns in an episode during Dino Fury s1. The character is expected to have a bigger role in the second season as the Green Morphin Master woke the Gold Rafkon Ranger, Ayion, as without him, Lord Zedd will reign again.
This one will be interesting as the second season of Dino Fury has yet to come out so we will get to see how the rest of this will pan out when it premieres on Netflix in 2022.
