The small screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ acclaimed superhero cop comic Powers is gearing up for Season 2, and it’s adding a whole lot of new faces along the way.
The new, 10-episode season looks to adapt the iconic “Who Killed Retro Girl?” storyline from the comics, but with more than a few twists thrown in along the way. The first season was good (but certainly not perfect), though it managed to build one heck of a fun world. Judging by this action-packed new trailer for Season 2, it looks like Bendis and the gang will finally get a chance to kick over the sandbox in the best possible way.
"I'm insanely thrilled with the opportunity to introduce season 2 on PlayStation Network,” Bendis said. "The new season tells the story of Detective Christian Walker's obsession with solving the murder of beloved hero, Retro Girl, with the help of his partner Deena Pilgrim. 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.”
Along with returning stars Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Detective Christian Walker and Susan Heyward (Vinyl) as Detective Deena Pilgrim, the new season features a ton of cast shake-ups. New additions include Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Michael Madsen (The Hateful Eight), Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars) and even Wil Wheaton (The Big Bang Theory). But, don’t worry — Season 1 alums Olesya Rulin (High School Musical), Justice Leak (Supergirl), Logan Browning (Hit The Floor), and Michelle Forbes (Orphan Black) will also be back.
Season 2 of Powers is set to premiere May 31 on Playstation Network.
