When NBC Will Renew ‘Powerless’ for a Season 2?
We are used to that The CW serves as a home for numerous television adaptations with DC Comics characters. NBC apparently wants to take a piece of cake, by launching “Powerless,” a brand new sitcom inspired by the characters from the DC Comics universe that kicked off on Feb 2, 2017 on NBC. The series premiere has garnered over three million viewers, as well as mixed, but principally positive reviews from critics and target audience.
Without a doubt, millions of fans of the action comedy series want to figure out, whether or not we will see a second season of “Powerless” on NBC, and if this happens, when should we expect its release date? There has been no official news from NBC regarding renewal. But if you do not want to miss the very possible upcoming premiere, we suggest you to sign up for our automatic notifications, and we’ll keep you informed.
We believe that the decision on renewal will follow very soon. Despite the controversial reception, “Powerless” has gained many viewers during its premiere, and we suppose that this factor will serve as a main indicator that affects the final decision of NBC. Let’s take a look at some major indicators to extend our forecast.
Currently, according to IMDb, “Powerless” has a score of 6.9/10 based on over 370 user votes. Meantime, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the current season of “Powerless” has an average score of 5.26/10 and a 61% approval rating among critics, as well as a score of 3.1/5 and a 46% approval rating among the viewers. At the same time, according to Metacritic, the sitcom has a score of 57/100 and 5.8/10 among critics/viewers, respectively.
But the premiere of the first season of “Powerless” has drawn 3.098 million viewers with a 1.10 demo rating among adults (1-49). This figure is quite strong for such a kind of TV show, thus we believe that we’ll see another season of “Powerless” on NBC.
“Powerless” focuses on the everyday life and work of Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens), who heads a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises. In the world which suffers from the endless battles between superheroes and villains, bystanders feel themselves undefended. Emily’s unit specialises in products for ordinary (powerless) humans, who don’t want to turn into a victim in the collision of all-powerful. The TV series is created by Ben Queen, who also serves as executive producer.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 2)
“Powerless” Season 1 was launched on Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 8:30 PM on NBC, and its debut drew over 3 million viewers, as well as was mainly well received by critics and the target audience. NBC has yet to announce its decision on renewal or cancellation of the action comedy series. But despite the ambivalent reviews, we still believe that “Powerless” will be returning for a next season on NBC, given the statistics presented above. However, we would prefer to wait for the official announcement of NBC anyway.
