Powers Gets Picked Up for a Second Season to Air in 2016. Despite getting mixed reviews, the Playstation Network’s first original series Powers got renewed for a second season to premiere in 2016. The superhero procedural was Playstation’s first scripted show and it seemed to pay off in the long run.
The Hollywood Reporter first gave word about the second season pickup of Playstation’s first foray into scripted television. After premiering its first episode in March, Powers ranked as the most watched series premiere on the platform. “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 in Platforms Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America. “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.”
Co-creator and executive producer Brian Michael Bendis also expressed his gratitude for the good response to the comic book adaptation. “We are so grateful to the PlayStation nation and fans of Powers for supporting us and making the second season a reality,” Bendis said. “I speak for the entire cast & crew when I say that we are really excited about season two and the opportunity to tell the story of the biggest case in Powers history.”
“We are proud to continue our collaboration with the PlayStation team to bring premium original programming to PlayStation Network,” said Zack Van Amburg, President, Programming and Development, Sony Pictures Television.
“There is a lot to look forward to in season two for both new and existing fans of the series, as we broaden the ‘Powers’ universe and bring even more of the fan-favorite characters and storylines to life,” said Jamie Erlicht, president of programming and development at SPT.
