Power Gets Early Season 6 Renewal, Well Ahead of July Return Date

Starz		The cast of Power will be back for Seasons 5 and 6 on Starz

Starz has extended its time in "Power", picking up a sixth season of its top-rated series several months before Season 5 is set to debut. Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, an executive producer on the series, will direct the season-six premiere episode.

Word on the sixth season comes as the network prepares to premiere season five on July 1.

U.S. cablenet Starz has renewed its New York-set drugs drama Power for a sixth season ahead of wrapping production on season five.

"As Power wraps production on season five, we want to acknowledge and thank our spectacular Power team for producing another great season", said Carmi Zlotnik, Starz President of Programming. "We are also pleased to announce a pick-up for Season 6". Starz says multiplatform viewing - DVR, on-demand, streaming and on-air replays - brought in 9.3 million viewers per episode last season.

Created by Courtney Kemp, Power centers on conflicted businessman and reluctant druglord James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) whose life has become all the more chaotic now that his teenage daughter is dead and his wife Tasha (Naturi Naughton) is taking the heat for killing the man responsible despite being innocent of the crime.

The show is also produced by G-Unit Films and Television, the production company launched by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, and Canton's Atmosphere Entertainment MM.
