PlayStation orders new Powers

The first drama produced for the PlayStation network has been given a second season.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that the PlayStation Original series Powers, based on the graphic novels of the same name, will return in 2016.

Season two will continue to follow the detectives and the Powers Division team as they go up against commercialised superhumans who impose their power on the public, which both worships and fears them.

Powers is produced Jinxworld and Circle of Confusion in association with Sony Pictures Television. Charlie Huston, Remi Aubuchon, Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming, David Engel, Lawrence Mattis, David Alpert, and Frank Frattaroli are executive producers.
