Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announced today that on May 31, season 2 of POWERS, the PlayStation(R)Original series from Sony Pictures Television, launches on PlayStation(TM)Network (PSN?) in the UK.
POWERS is co-created and executive produced by acclaimed Marvel(R) writer Brian Michael Bendis and helmed by showrunner and respected genre writer and executive producer Remi Aubuchon (Falling Skies).
The first three episodes of season 2 will be available at 12:01 PM PDT on PSN, with subsequent episodes releasing each week. The 10-episode season will be available at no extra cost for PlayStation(R)Plus (PS Plus) members*.
“I’m insanely thrilled with the opportunity to introduce season 2 on PSN,” said Brian Michael Bendis, executive producer of PlayStation original series POWERS, and co-creator of the comic book series. “We focused on what fans loved about season 1 and amped up the visual effects, cinematography, and stunts so season 2 is going to be louder, faster and more electrifying than anything you’ve seen from us before!”
Season 2 features a stellar cast, starring Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Detective Christian Walker and Susan Heyward (Vinyl) as Detective Deena Pilgrim. Several new faces will also make their POWERS debut, including Michael Madsen (The Hateful Eight), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars) and Wil Wheaton (The Big Bang Theory), alongside returning favorites Olesya Rulin (High School Musical), Justice Leak (Supergirl), Logan Browning (Hit The Floor), and Michelle Forbes (Orphan Black).
Season one of POWERS is currently airing in the UK on Fridays at 9pm on Spike TV, after which each episode is then available to watch for free for 30 days on demand via the Demand 5 app, available on PS4 and PS3 for all PSN users.
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.
