The other day saw PlayStation’s Powers adaptation coming out of hibernation to deliver its first Season 2 photos, now crashing through your wall with more to offer. Not only do we have a May premiere for the first episodes, but a brand-new trailer chock full of superhero action.
Per Sony’s official announcement, the second season of Powers will make the first three episodes available on May 31, free to PlayStation Plus members, beginning 12:01 P.M. PT. Subsequent episodes will debut each week, while the newest praise from creator Brian Michael Bendis reads:

So reads Powers Season 2's synopsis:
Powers, an edgy dramatic series inspired by 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.
In addition to casting Michael Madsen’s “Super Shock” and Tricia Helfer’s Agent Lange, Falling Skies alum Remi Aubuchon took up showrunning duties for the new season fulltime, while Ben Edlund (Supernatural, Angel, Firefly and creator of The Tick) will join the writing staff.
Stay tuned for the latest on Powers Season 2, and check out the first trailer again below.
