Starz Renews ‘Power’ For Season 6

The network’s top performing drama previously awarded a two-season pickup in 2016.

Starz is giving another early green light for Power, it’s top-performing original from Courtney Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Word on the sixth season comes as the network prepares to premiere No. 5 on July 1.

“As Power wraps production on season five, we want to acknowledge and thank our spectacular team for producing another great season,” said network programming president Carmi Zlotnik. “We are also pleased to announce a pick-up for season six.”

Power, the network’s top performer with an average 9.3 million viewers per episode across platforms, last scored a two-season pickup in 2016 when Starz was reupping its overall deal with Kemp. The showrunner’s profile has risen considerably since Power launched in 2014. (She also has buzzy pilot Get Christie Love in the works at ABC.)

The sixth season opener of Power will be directed by Jackson, a first for the rapper-actor.
