It was announced by Brian Michael Bendis over Twitter that Powers has been cancelled after two seasons by the PlayStation Network.
The series was the first attempt by PlayStation to create original series programming for the PlayStation Network. It was based off of the comic book series created by Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming, both also served as executive producers on the series as well.
While the show seems dead, Bendis holds out hope on its continuation on TV.
The news of the cancellation comes not too long after the second season had just finished its run. PlayStation picked up Powers back in 2014 after it was originally in development for FX back in 2011. Bendis also said over Twitter that he and Oeming are working on a brand new storyline for the comics title Diamond Days and that the first two issues are already completed.
For those on XBox or most likely didn’t know about Powers, Powers is set in a world where humans and superheroes, often called Powers, co-exist. It followed Christian Walker, a former Power who now works as a detective in the Powers Division that deals with crimes involving people with superpowers. Sharlto Copley played Walker and Susan Heyward co-starred as Walker’s new partner, Deena Pilgrim, a regular human. The show also starred Adam Godley, Noah Taylor, Olesya Rulin, Michelle Forbes, Max Fowler, Eddie Izzard, and Michael Madsen.
The cancellation of Powers could determine whenever or not PlayStation will move forward with more original series content. We’ll just have to wait and see.
