We’ve got news for fans of American TV series ‘Power’. Starz announced that the series’ upcoming 6th season will be its last.
“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the ‘Power’ story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin,” said Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming for Starz. He continued, “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.”
According to Starz, final season (which has 15 episodes) will see a heightened and unpredictable journey that raises the stakes yet again, closing out with “The Final Betrayal.”
In the upcoming season, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, the show’s executive producer, will be making his directorial debut with episode 603.
“The last 5 seasons of ‘Power’ have been an incredible ride for me and all of our supportive fans. We are far from over and I am excited to bring you more from the ‘Power’ brand,” Jackson said. “I am proud that I was able to put a lasting stamp on this chapter with my directorial debut in an episode that features one of the wildest scenes ever on the show.”
In an official statement, it was revealed, the intention to phase the series into something bigger: “We will follow some of your beloved ‘Power’ characters beyond the scope of the initial series,” said Kemp, creator and executive producer. “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.”
The premiere of the sixth and final season of ‘Power’ is Sunday, August 25 on Starz.
