Beverly Hills, Calif., - October 12, 2016 - Starz announced today that production has begun in and around New York, including its home base in Brooklyn's Steiner Studios, for the upcoming fourth season of the STARZ Original hit series, "Power." The fourth season will include ten episodes of the one-hour scripted drama and return Summer 2017 on STARZ.
"Power" Season Three is the most-watched STARZ original series ever, with a record of 7.1M viewers of "Power" across all platforms and counting.* The #1 original STARZ drama also ranked #1 among all weekend cable programs for African American viewers this season.**
"Power" Season Four is from Executive Producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp ("The Good Wife"). The new season will pick up on the heels of James "Ghost" St. Patrick's highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox - a crime he did not commit. Ghost can't outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family's safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.
"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 drug kingpin and nightclub impresario James "Ghost" St. Patrick, Joseph Sikora, as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays James' fierce, loyal wife Tasha St. Patrick and Lela Loren as his first love Assistant U.S. Attorney, Angela Valdes.
Courtney A. Kemp serves as the Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer of "Power." Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon serve as Executive Producers on "Power."
