Although it lasted two seasons, Sony's original superhero crime drama Powers unfortunately won't be returning for a third. According to series creator and comic book author Brian Michael Bendis on Twitter, "season 2 was the last. at least for now."

For Sony, the show was a bit of a trial run to test the waters of original programming on its PlayStation Network, so the show's cancellation doesn't bode well for more full-length streaming series on PSN. As for the most devoted followers of Powers, Bendis did tell fans that the comic book version he first published in 2000, which eventually became the basis of the series, will live on at Marvel with a new storyline called "Diamond Days."
