Starz orders fourth and fifth seasons for Power. Network president and Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced that Starz is interested in additional seasons of the crime drama from executive producer Courtney A. Kemp.
The move is the first of it’s kind for Power, which broke records when it’s third season premiered on July 17th.
Hailing Kemp and her fellow executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson‘s work on the series, Albrecht described the show as “one of the most distinct dramas I’ve ever had the good fortune of putting on the air” and added that fans “cannot get enough” of it’s characters:
From Executive Producer Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp (“The Good Wife”) comes season three of the hit drama Power, steeped in the seductive nightlife of New York’s elite and the violent underworld of international drug cartels.
Season Three finds James St. Patrick as the owner of new nightclubs, out of the drug game and in a rekindled relationship with his first love, Angela — the Assistant United States Attorney sworn to bring him to justice. But just as they begin to believe James’ past criminal persona of ‘Ghost’ may finally be behind them, both are forced to face the consequences of running from a life from which no one gets away clean.
James’ estranged best friend Tommy has just reunited with his newly returned love, Holly, but must attempt to not only rebuild Lobos’ devastated drug organization, but to kill Ghost — turning brother against brother.
