Speaking to SFX, Overman revealed: “They’re all going to have brand new powers. Nobody will have the same powers as in the second series.”
He continued: “It’s quite daunting because they’ve had their powers for two series, and you’ve got to come up with a whole new set of powers, and we’re very much constrained with the type of powers we can do because you have to think about what works in terms of the character and story, as well as what’s achievable on our budget. We set up the idea that the powers are always linked to personality, so even now the characters’ choices are influenced and reflect the characters’ personalities, or else it just feels a bit arbitrary.”
The magazine also reports that Overman tells them it’s likely he won’t be writing every episode of Series 3, which will run for eight episodes.
The new SFX ‘Best Of British’ special is out in shops today.
