The announcement is finally here for all those who are fans of the Starz hit show “Power.”
On Tuesday, the network confirmed that they decided to renew the show just months before the release of season 5.
“As Power wraps production on season five, we want to acknowledge and thank our spectacular team for producing another great season,” Carmi Zlotnik, Starz’s network programming president, said in a statement. “We are also pleased to announce a pick-up for Season 6.”
This decision, however, is no surprise due to the amazing ratings the show brought to the network.
“Power” brought in an average of 9.3 million multiplatform viewers per episode. It also has been the network’s most-watched original program with an average of 7.4 million multiplatform viewers for all four seasons.
The cast is led by Omari Hardwick as James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a man trying to escape his role as a drug kingpin for a legitimized life in the elite of NYC; Joseph Sikora as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays Ghost’s fierce wife Tasha St. Patrick; and Lela Loren is his first love, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes.
The show is also produced by G-Unit Films and Television, the production company launched by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Canton’s Atmosphere Entertainment MM.
