EP and co-creator Brian Michael Bendis, writer of the original Powers comics that the TV series was based on, took to Twitter to commiserate the show’s ending, while also promising that the storyline will continue in comic form.

The series focused on a detective (played by Sharlto Copley) who focused on crimes involving people with superpowers. It ran for twenty episodes and received mixed reviews.

Despite Sony and Microsoft’s assertions at the turn of the last console cycle, console-specific original programming has never taken off – don’t expect Powers to be replaced with a new PlayStation-exclusive show.
