In advance of production wrapping on season five, Starz announced today the early renewal of hit Starz Original series Power for an additional sixth season.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is scheduled to direct the season six premiere.
From creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp, Power has continued to perform for the network growing with each season and establishing several all-time high performances for Starz viewership.
The much-anticipated fifth season will return on Sunday, July 1st at 9PM ET/PT.
Starz President of Programming Carmi Zlotnik said, “As ‘Power’ wraps production on season five, we want to acknowledge and thank our spectacular ‘Power’ team for producing another great season. We are also pleased to announce a pick-up for season six.”
Power is a visionary drama that straddles the glamorous Manhattan lifestyles of the rich and infamous and the underworld of the international drug trade.
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.
