Starz has greenlit two additional seasons of its original series Power days after the record-setting ratings performance of the show’s season three premiere.
The series averaged 2.26 million viewers in its third season debut this past Sunday, setting a network record for a season premiere episode and growing the season two premiere audience by more than 58%, said network officials.
The series, which stars Omari Hardrick as a drug kingpin/turned successful nightclub owner, is executvively produced by Curtis '50 Cent" Jackson and created by Courtney Kemp (The Good Wife).
“In today’s content landscape, it is challenging for a series to stand out, but Courtney is a singular voice working in television today,” said Chris Albrecht, Starz president and CEO. “Along with our executive producers and the talented Power cast and crew, they have created one of the most distinct dramas I’ve ever had the good fortune of putting on the air. The fans have let it be known loud and clear that they cannot get enough of Ghost, Tommy, Tasha, Angela and Kanan.”
