Powers was the first original TV series for PlayStation and it premiered on the PlayStation Network in 2015. Brian Michael Bendis executive producer of the show and co-creator of the comic book, gave us our first look at the second season of the show today. You may also know Brian Michael Bendis as the creator of the original Jessica Jones comic book series, which recently saw its own adaption on Netflix.
Powers tells the story of homicide detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim who work cases specific to the world of superheroes, super villains, and everyone in between, called Powers. The new season of the show will focus on the biggest mystery of the comic book series, the death of Retro Girl the biggest superhero in the world of Powers.
Bendis addressed the second season with a post on the PlayStation Blog, where he comments on how different people may think the new season looks.
“Just like our characters, we’re growing into our powers (bad pun intended) and the show has continued to evolve and grow in a way we are all extremely proud of.”
Bendis says that the team has hired on even more talent to make the show the best it can be, and in upcoming posts on PlayStation Blog he’ll be going through these new additions and what they bring to the show.
