Power to End After Super-Sized Season 6 — Find Out When It’ll Premiere
The upcoming sixth season of the Courtney Kemp created and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson executive produced NYC underworld drama will be the last for the Starz series. However, the 15-episode August 25 premiering “The Final Betrayal” season won’t be the end of the dirty deeds for the premium cabler’s top offering as planned spinoffs are already in the pipeline.“We will follow some of your beloved Power characters beyond the scope of the initial series,” proclaimed EP Kemp today of the next phases in the world she fashioned. “But we will play with your expectations of which characters, where, and the master timeline of it all, creating a Power universe as unpredictable as the original.”
“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the Power story,” “Starz programming boss Carmi Zlotnik said Thursday of the cabler’s clear crown jewel. “However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin. Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the Power universe.”
While we don’t know for sure yet what those new stories will be, we do know that the supersized Season 6, up 50% in episodes from Season 5, will see the Power directorial debut for 50 Cent with the third episode of the upcoming season.
