That seems to be a bit of a reach. It would be more reasonable to say that Saban would just twist arms and legs until another network took it.
Unfortunately, MegaBlue is right - there aren't any!

Discovery Family doesn't have the reach that is necessary.
Isn't that network also part-owned by Hasbro? That would be another problem.

Even if there was another network to carry the show, they'd still do it in such a dragged out manner for the seasons. That is the standard amongst children's programming these days.

I know it has been a recurring topic, but I just dislike that policy, not only because some Sentai adaptations will be skipped, but because it seems to me that the only place where the "2-year season" rule is in place applies to US.

Here, we get 2 episodes per week, meaning it is exhausted already after 10 week. It's a periodic thing to show on other countries like a special rather than a weekly mainstay it was before because of the rule. I am not sure why they would think it would be wise to watch unending reruns everytime (seeing that Nick only produces a part of PR), but it is affecting other countries who don't have that issue.

Disney Channel and Disney XD air shows this way, too. Hell, season 2 of Gravity Falls aired over the course of nearly two years.

Live action shows do at least seem to air within the year for around 20+ episodes.

I believe it. The amount of Spongebob episodes already in existence are each ratings-worthy. The dedication isn't as needed anymore, just leave reminders of your existence in sporadic bits. There's always a new generation willing to sit down to any episode, unfortunately.

This works for Spongebob as it's entirely episodic. Shows that require continuity, telling an ongoing story, cannot sustain themselves with this formula, Power Rangers or otherwise.

Unless Saban tries his hand at starting his own network again, Nickelodeon's the best option we've got right now, short of going direct-to-Netflix.
Does Netflix allow for longer episodes counts?
Here's a list of kids shows exclusive to Netflix.

Most of them only seem to get 6 to 13 episodes per a season. (Although it's not clear if they show more than one season per a year).
Even still, it looks like moving to Netflix would cause the episode count to fall.

I think Saban's Popples was on Netflix and it got 5 episodes in 2015 and then 20 episodes in 2016, which is a lot less than 2 years of PR on Nickelodeon.

Glitter Force (listed under acquisitions) was on there as well. Split into two halves. It had 40 episodes over two years, just like PR does.

So yeah, even Netflix wouldn't end the two year adaptations. They'd need to go to Sony, who own PR's UK channels Pop and Kix, for that - and they're not going to prioritise another market over the US.

Actually, is different. They aired season 7, 8 and 9 mixed. They even premiered season 10 while airing season 9. That's the reason it takes them so long to finish a season. All Spongebob seasons have aired like that except seasons 1 and 8 the aired in less than two years.

See:

Season 01: May, 1999 - April, 2000
Season 02: October, 2000 - July, 2003
Season 03: October 2001 - October, 2004
Season 04: May, 2005 - July, 2007
Season 05: February, 2007 - July 2009
Season 06: March, 2008 - July, 2010
Season 07: July, 2009 - June, 2011
Season 08: March, 2011 - December, 2012
Season 09: July, 2012 - February, 2017
Season 10: October, 2016

A weekly Netflix series might not be unreasonable, and it'd be a good way to get the true global synergy that they were supposed to do years ago. (Remember that excerpt from that article back in, what, Samurai or Megaforce's days?) If you're releasing the series around the world on the same days, then it'd eliminate the annual "the UK/Italy/France/Latin America finishes the season before the US" tirades.

As for Kix, didn't they try to be all-PR at one point and it didn't work out?

Yes, that was represented by the very, very, very short-lived "Kix Power" channel

Hmm, maybe it was. Did it ever come back on after that particular period?
