We near the 30th anniversary of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and prepare for the Netflix special that sees some of the most iconic cast members return.
One cast member is not returning, and that’s the original Pink Ranger Amy Jo Johnson. While many have speculated on why she has chosen not to return, alongside the late Jason David Frank, she has cleared up allegations that it was due to money issues in recent tweets.
Johnson tweets, “Please stop saying I didn’t do reunion because of money Simply not true. Maybe I just didn’t want to wear spandex in my 50s 🤣 or couldn’t go to NZ for a month.Or none of ur beeswax 🐝 JDF & I both chose not to for our own reasons. They filmed before he passed. #PowerRangers”

She does add she is thrilled to see her co-stars and long-time friends return. Adding in another tweet, “Excited to see my pals @David_Yost & @Walterejones rock it though!!”
These tweets follow a Janurary 18th tweet saying she simply didn’t “say yes to what was offered.” No matter what, her presence will be missed in the 30th-anniversary special.
