'Power' Gets Renewed For A Fourth And (Wait For It) Fifth Season
Looks like Power isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
Deadline reports after the STARZ original drama smashed their Season Three debut with 2.26 million views, the premium cable network rewarded the show's success by renewing it for a fourth and fifth season.
Fans waited mored than a year to see what would unfold, and after 14 months their thirst was quenched. For the premier episode, now airing Sunday nights,, fans saw Ghost (excuse us) James St. Patrick assume the role as club owner, leaving his murderous past behind him but learning shortly after all his loose ends weren't tied. Show runner and creator Courtney A. Kemp carefully and cleverly planted breadcrumbs throughout the hour-long season opener indicating the drama that will no doubt unfold. The initial episode was up 58% from Season Two's premiere and 389% from the first season's first episode.
“In today’s content landscape, it is challenging for a series to stand out, but Courtney is a singular voice working in television today," Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said. “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. … The fans have let it be known loud and clear that they cannot get enough of Ghost, Tommy, Tasha, Angela and Kanan.”
Indeed. Congrats to the cast.
