Powerless Season 2 cancelled already? The reaper licks his lips and sharpens his scythe following news that the NBC superhero comedy has lost its showrunner amid “creative differences”.
There has been a change at the helm of the new DC Comics-themed NBC comedy series Powerless. The show’s creator/executive producer and showrunner Ben Queenis exiting. Start of production on the midseason series, which had been slated to begin in two weeks, is being postponed as a search is underway for a new showrunner. The delay will not impact the launch of Powerless as NBC is yet to set its midseason scheduling plans.
Queen’s departure was a mutual decision between the writer-producer, NBC and Powerless producer Warner Bros. TV stemming from creative differences.
Is the show powerless to prevent an inevitable cancellation, or is this just a bump in the road towards a ‘super’ Season 2? Stay tuned…
