PlayStation has just released the first Powers season 2 trailer online! The footage from the new season originally premiered last Saturday at the PlayStation Experience, but now we have the trailer for you -- which shows some pretty significant changes to the series.
Remi Aubuchon, who we know and love from his work on Falling Skies, is the new showrunner, and he was in charge of making new hires behind the scenes in areas of cinematography, costumes, stunts, and production design. So if season 2 looks like it’s taking it up a notch from season 1, you’d be correct.
From incredible guest stars to the characters we fell in love with last season, take a look at a bigger, bolder, and even sexier Powers in the new trailer below.
