Update 05/11/17: NBC has officially announced that Powerless has been canceled.
NBC has removed Powerless, the office comedy set in the DC Comics universe, from their schedule and replaced it with reruns of Superstore. The DC comedy premiered in February and had just two episodes left to air this season.
While an official cancellation announcement hasn’t come from NBC yet, a tweet from Powerless executive producer Patrick Schumacker suggests that the end is here.
#Powerless will not air this week or next. This, I know for sure. I can guess some other things but they're not good. Thanks for watching.

Earlier today Warner Bros. announced a new DC Comics streaming TV service would launch in 2018. A show like Powerless seems perfect for that. Perhaps we’ll see it come back one day.
