Power Season 5 should be a big deal for Starz. Who am i kidding? Power Season 4 was already a big deal for Starz. There was plenty of action and controversey onscreen in season four – SPOILER ALERT – Raina died, James was finally exonerated, and Tariq went to prep school (ok, one of these was decidedly less dramatic).
Power Season 5
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.
Still, that could hardly compare to the action happening offscreen. First, Starz proudly revealed the news that not only was Power the most widely-watched show on its network – it was also the second most watched show on all of pay cable (after Game of Thrones naturally).
After all that controversey, however, not only is Power Season 5 underway, Starz announced it has renewed the show for Power Season 6.
“As Power wraps production on season five, we want to acknowledge and thank our spectacular Power team for producing another great season,” Starz President of Programming Carmi Zlotnik said. “We are also pleased to announce a pick-up for season six.”
