Powers: Season 2 Trailer
This is Brian Bendis, executive producer of PlayStation’s Powers, and co-creator of the comic book series the show is based on. We premiered the first footage from season 2 on Saturday at PlayStation Experience and I’m so excited to share it with you.
I’m hoping you enjoy what you see and that you’ll take note of all the hard work we’ve put into this season. This year the show has evolved and grown in a way we are all extremely proud of.
Our new showrunner, Remi Aubuchon, led the charge of making some significant hires behind the scenes in the areas of cinematography, costumes, stunts and production design. We’ve expanded the cast and added in some incredible guest stars. Together we’ve worked to make this season even BIGGER, BOLDER, and SEXIER than ever!
Please check out the PlayStation Blog I just posted for additional details and casting announcements. Thank you so much for your continued support.
Powers, an edgy dramatic series based on the graphic novel series of the same name, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, referred to as “Powers.” Set amidst today’s paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? The new season will delve into the storyline made famous by the first comic “Who Killed Retro Girl?” as the Powers Division investigates the shocking murder of the world famous superhero (played by Michelle Forbes) and the mysteries that her death uncovers.
The 10-episode first season of Powers finished its run in May on PlayStation Network. Episodes can be found on PlayStation Store for free streaming to all PlayStation Plus Subscribers and individual episodic purchase. Powers: Season 1 Blu-ray is also available now for purchase.
Powers is produced by Jinxworld and Circle of Confusion in association with Sony Pictures Television. Remi Aubuchon, Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming and David Engel serve as executive producers.
