Posted on

NBC has pulled the plug on Powerless.

The network has yanked the superhero comedy with three episodes remaining from its schedule. Though this is not an official cancellation, it’s clearly a very bad sign for the D.C. universe series.

Powerless stars Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi, and Alan Tudyk and follows a group of ordinary office workers in a world of superheroes and supervillains. The show launched as a midseason replacement in February but has only averaged about 2.9 million viewers.
