‘Powers’ Canceled, PlayStation Not Moving Forward with Season 3

PlayStation Network has officially pulled the plug on its superhero drama ‘Powers’, canceling the young drama after only two seasons.

Christian Walker, Deena Pilgrim and the Powers Division’s time on the job has come to an end! PlayStation Network has opted not to move forward with a third season of its superhero procedural series Powers, canceling the series after two seasons.

“This is hard to tweet, but work is that [Powers] is sadly, no more. Season 2 was the last, at least for now,” co-creator Brian Michael Bendis wrote via Twitter. ”I’ll type more about it later, but thanks you ALL for your support. Such a fantastic personal experience that you gifted all of us.”

Sharloto Copley (District 9, Maleficent) stars as the charismatic Christian Walker, a one time superhero who now works as a detective who works with law enforcement, using his singular expertise to investigate crimes in the Powers community alongside his partner Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward). 

While the PlayStation Network has opted not to move forward with Season 3, Bendis reminded fans that the series will live on through the Marvel graphic novel franchise that inspired the series while also teasing the potential for a third season elsewhere.

“A Powers episode generated over 4.5 million hits on YouTube alone & [there are] people [behind the sceens] who believe in us. We’ll see,” Bendis noted when asked about the potential to continue the series elsewhere by one Twitter follower.

Powers, PlayStation Network’s first original scripted drama, is produced by Jinxworld and Circle of Confusion in association with Sony Pictures Television with Bendis, Charlie Huston, Remi Aubuchon, Michael Avon Oeming, David Engel, Lawrence Mattis, David Alpert and Frank Frattaroli serving as executive producers.
