Powerless – NBC’s DC-inspired workplace comedy, which stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Christina Kirk – seems to be in a spot of trouble.
There are two episodes left to air of the show’s first season, but NBC has removed both of them from its schedule. Ratings is the reason that most news outlets, the ever-reliable TV Line included, seem to be citing.
Instead of the airing the final two episodes of Powerlessseason 1, NBC chiefs have opted to schedule in some Superstore repeats.
It remains to be seen if this is a delay or a cancellation. The show’s executive producer, Patrick Schumacker, seems to be unsure as well…
This is a shame, not just because it’s very unceremonious and a bit harsh on a show that does have it’s moments, but also because the last piece of news surrounding Powerless was such an exciting one…
Powerless: Adam West joins the cast
Back in March, CBR reported that Adam West – he of the 1960s Batman TV show and film fame – will play Dean West, the chairman of Wayne Industries, in Powerless.
CBR also shared this official info…
“Gotham comes to Charm City when the iconic Adam West, who played the role of Batman on television in the Sixties, guest stars in an upcoming episode of Powerless as Dean West, chairman of Wayne Industries. Following an attack on Gotham City, Wayne Industries has to make some cuts and Mr. West visits Charm City to deliver the bad news to Van and Emily. Will the dynamic duo of Van and Emily be able to save the team at Wayne Security, or are our Charm City Heroes destined for the unemployment line?”
It’s unclear if Adam West’s episode will now reach the air. It’s one of the two final episodes of Powerless season 1, which NBC has just pulled from the schedule.
