Sony PlayStation has renewed its first original series, the superhero detective drama “Powers,” for a second season. The second batch of episodes are slated to debut on the service in the U.S. in 2016.
The series is currently free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers, however Sony has not released actual viewing numbers regarding the series. Reviews for the series have been decidedly mixed/weak.
Meanwhile The CW has given a second-season order for its midseason drama “iZombie”. The show has fared well with critics and has had decent and consistent ratings so far.
Finally, FOX has announced that they’re not moving forward with the Mindy Kaling-led comedy “The Mindy Project” after three seasons. The series premiered to an audience of around 4.6 million in September 2012, a number that dropped to around half that amount for its season-three premiere this past March.
That’s the bad news. The good news? Universal Television is reportedly in talks with Hulu to shift ‘Mindy’ over to the streaming service in a new deal that would reportedly include at least two new seasons. Hulu already has a standing library of all three seasons of the show.
