Starz Renews ‘Power’ For Fourth And Fifth Seasons


(AllHipHop News) After a record-breaking season three premiere, Power has been renewed for two more seasons.

This is the first time the Starz hit series experiences a multi-season pickup.

Creator/showrunner Courtney A. Kemp is set to return for the upcoming fourth and fifth seasons.

Fellow executive producers Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett, and Gary Lennon are  coming back as well.

“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,” states Starz President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht. “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.”

50 Cent adds, “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.”
