Watch PlayStation’s Full ‘Powers’ Season 2 Premiere Right Now
Is it Free Comic Book TV day? Well, if the first episode of AMC’s Preacher weren’t enough to tide you over, Sony PlayStation’s Powers seems to have followed suit for Season 2. The full 2016 premiere is available online, free of charge.
The full first three episodes are now available at the PlayStation Store, though Sony opted to place the entire Season 2 premiere online to all. The second season of Powers is free to PlayStation Plus members, with subsequent episodes debuting each week. So reads the Season 2 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) joined the writing staff.
