PlayStation Renews ‘Powers’ for Second Season
PlayStation has renewed their debut series Powers for a second season.
The series, based on the graphic novels by Brian Michael Bendis, follows the lives of Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim(Susan Heyward), two homicide detectives who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as Powers.
The network announced the news today, telling The Hollywood Reporter that Christian Walker, Deena Pilgrim, Retro Girl, Wolfe and all the other Powers characters you love (or fear) will return in 2016.
“The reception to Powers has been incredible, and we are thrilled to have successfully launched a platform for original content with the PlayStation gamer in mind,” said John Koller, vp platforms marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, in a statement. “We believe original content will continue to be a key pillar as we broaden the value proposition for PlayStation Plus, and we’re excited for what’s to come with season two of Powers.”
Powers launched on March 10th and is the PlayStation Network’s first forray into original programming. The series was filmed right here in Atlanta, but there’s no word on where the second season will film (although we’d be willing to bet it stays here).
