Starz Renews Power for Two More Seasons


BEVERLY HILLS: Starz has greenlit its original series Power for fourth and fifth seasons.

The season three premiere on July 17 broke records for Starz, with 2.26 million live + same day viewers. There were 3.37 million live + same day premiere night viewers in total over the three Sunday night airings, marking the most ever for an original series’ season premiere on the network.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said, “In today’s content landscape, it is challenging for a series to stand out, but Courtney is a singular voice working in television today. In Curtis, we not only have an immense talent, but an executive producer who brings a unique perspective, an authentic voice and passionate fan base that has helped in a large part propel the success of the series. Along with our executive producers and the talented Power cast and crew, they have created one of the most distinct dramas I’ve ever had the good fortune of putting on the air. The fans have let it be known loud and clear that they cannot get enough of Ghost, Tommy, Tasha, Angela and Kanan.”

Creator Courtney A. Kemp added, “Chris Albrecht and the Starz team have believed in this show from the very beginning. Everyone here at Power is deeply grateful for the tremendous support we have received from the fans of the show, which made today’s announcement possible. I am humbled by this vote of confidence from the network and the opportunity to continue to employ our excellent cast and crew, who work tirelessly to bring this show to life.”

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, executive producer and cast member, said, “I knew Power was going to be something special from the first concept meeting I had with Mark Canton. The fans’ support for the show has been the driving force of its success and I can’t wait to bring them two more seasons full of action and suspense.”
