USA’s “Suits” Renewed, PSN’s “Powers” Cancelled

Two series just had their future decided and it was mixed news.

On the upside USA Network’s popular legal drama “Suits” scored a renewal for a seventh season, the announcement made during yesterday’s stop on the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour.

The show, currently only three episodes into its sixth season, is averaging 3 million total viewers and 1.1 million viewers among adults 18-39 in Live+3 ratings.

It’s USA’s second longest-running drama series behind only “Burn Notice” and the last of its older shows still on the air as the network heads into edgier fare such as the acclaimed “Mr. Robot”.

The news wasn’t so good for “Powers,” the first TV series made exclusively for the PlayStation Network. The series adaptation of the comic title has been canceled after two seasons with co-creator and executive producer Brian Michael Bendis revealing the news on Twitter on Wednesday.

Sharlto Copley starred as a cop who works in the Powers division of the police force and deals with crimes involving those endowed with special abilities. Susan Heyward, Noah Taylor, Olesya Rulin, Adam Godley, Max Fowler and Michael Madsen also starred.

The news comes just a few weeks after the end of the show’s ten-episode second season and it remains unclear whether PlayStation Network will continue to invest in original series programming.
