Power renewed for Season 6 with Season 5 premiering July 1st

In advance of production wrapping on season five, Starz announced today the early renewal of their hit original series Power for an additional sixth season, with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson scheduled to direct the season six premiere episode.

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 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Carmi Zlotnik, Starz President of Programming, 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 the hugely successful New York-based crime drama created by Kemp who executive produces alongside Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett, Gary Lennon, and Shana Stein. The critically-acclaimed fourth season averaged 9.3 million multiplatform viewers per episode and is the most-watched franchise for Staz, averaging 7.4 million multiplatform viewers for all four seasons.

Power ranks #3 among premium scripted series for viewers and was a top three Sunday night program on Nielsen Social Rankings nine out of 10 weeks. The series is the recent recipient of three 2018 NAACP Image Awards including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, and a 2017 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Drama Series.

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.

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.
