The Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future television series (1987-1988) was a science fiction action television show that had built-in interactivity with toys produced by Mattel. The show was set in the 22nd century in a time where humas were fighting against subjugation by the mechanical Lord Dread and his Bio-Dread Empire. Captain Jonathan Power and his specially trained and equiped soldiers (of the future) were mankind's last hope against the Bio-Dreads.
For children's fare, the show had more romance and complex stories (relative to the time) than was typical so the show also gained an older fanbase. There was a proposed second season, but that never materialized. Now, two decades later, Executive in Charge of Development for the Goddard Film Group Eric Carnagey announced that a new follow up series in development has arrived. This new project is titled "Phoenix Rising".
The series is still in development and hasn't been picked up by anyone yet. Gary Goddard (one of the original series' creators) and new writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens (Star Trek, Primeval: New World) are associated with the project. No word of J. Michael Straczynski, who was the original Captain Power series story editor and wrote many an episode, as being attached. Reeves-Stevens hinted that we will see how the Metal Wars started and that many of the previous characters and settings will be returning.
