Production Slated to Resume September 2014 with a Ten-Episode Second Season of the New York Drama

Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Creator and Executive Producer Courtney Kemp Agboh Return

Beverly Hills, Calif., June 11, 2014 – Starz announced today a season two pick up of “Power,” the New York-based drama starring Omari Hardwick. Creator, showrunner and executive producer Courtney Kemp Agboh and fellow executive producers Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, David Knoller and Randall Emmett will return for the sophomore season. Production is set to begin on the 10-episode second season in and around New York, as well as at its home base at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn this September.

The eight-episode first season of this visionary crime drama is set in two different worlds, the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade, and follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick as he attempts to leave his illegitimate lifestyle behind.

“I am so grateful to Chris Albrecht, Carmi Zlotnik, and everyone at Starz for their support of ‘Power.’ I am thrilled and excited to have the opportunity to create a season two that we plan to be bigger and better than the first,” shared series creator Courtney Kemp Agboh.

“‘Power’ is a project extremely close to my heart and working with Chris Albrecht, Carmi Zlotnik and the Starz team has been the perfect fit for this. Viewers may be loving the start of season one now, but season two will blow them away,” says executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Starz retains all global distribution and home entertainment rights to the series.

He wants to build an empire, turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: he is living a double life. When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.

    I love POWER!!!!!! Ghost is definitely that dude…. I totally feel the relationship with him and Naturi is PERFECT as his wife…. it’s shows the transition of him as a man…. the love of his life leaves and goes to college 10 days before her 18th birthday…. I’m thinkin’ Tasha was an extra chick, back in the days….. proved to ride or die… so he wifed her…. [WHY IS THAT A STRETCH] the problem is… Tasha, is CAUGHT UP, and fell victim to the game… she loves the money and doesn’t want to leave… thereby the girl in her is hooked… Ghost has grown… and doesn’t wish to be ABOUT THAT LIFE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE…. it happens…. 1st love, soul mate, what could have been…. yes that ANGELA… he has a SOUL TIE with her… he claved to her and there are binds that not even years can break… he didn’t have to be unhappy with Tasha…. Angela was a darkened door of opportunity that was never closed…. his heart is in it!! I get it… Don’t like 50 AT ALL…. but the show is the bomb dot com…..

    Love the show I hate to see it end so soon. My only regrets is how they have Ghost cheating on his wife with a Latino friend, I just feel it was too soon into a new series to introduce his infidelity especially when it wasn’t shown that he was unhappy with his family life

  6. Thomas Bewley says

    While i read some reviews before it started that didnt give the series a fair chance. Im glad i didnt listen because clearly they dont know what there talking about. The show is great and has a big following already,so Starz knew what they had by renewing early…. Sometimes you have to watch for yourself to draw opinion.

  7. YellowCherrie says

    I really enjoyed watching all episodes of Power, the Mrs. St. Patrick played by
    Naturi Naughton she is ok, but it just seem although a little girl trying to play a womans part…. Overall great show..

    Up until two days ago,I knew nothing about the series “Power”. My son came over to help me celebrate my birthday and told me about “Power”,not only did I look at it but finished looking at all of season one. Omari Hardwick gives an excellent performance as he always does in whatever role he is playing. I can’t wait until season two starts. If you haven’t had a chance to look at season one,do yourself a favor and take the time to sit down and check it out. Curtis “50cent” Jackson has a winner on his hands. Keep it coming and I’ll be waiting for it.

    I love all the characters in this show. I know this show will be amazing and I am happy they renewed this show for a second season.

    I have to say I am so happy that this show has been renewed for a second season because I see potential. I’m most excited about Omari Hardwick and Louis Antonio Ramos’ characters as they are some hella talented actors.

    Really??? After 1 OK episode???
    Jump the gun much???

    Obvious plots all over the place as well.
    1) The ex girlfriend who he hasn’t seen for years, is back and is a prosecuter.
    2) His 2nd in command is ripping him off and putting the blame on others.
    3) The girlfriend he is with sees him with another woman, close and cozy, does NOT come over and introduce herself, does NOT ask anything about her. Does strip and play with herself in car with driver watching.
    4) The usual Mexican drug cartel leader in the US and having talks about drugs pretty much where ever he wants as if the US government is not knowing and listening in.
    5) Who then of course goes in and starts negotiations with another rival gang to take over the distribution network.

    So, can you say formulaic? I can. Pretty nude women will keep me watching although I don’t know for how long.

      To Grandizer!
      If you feel that way then don’t watch it!

      For the rest of us who enjoy it, keep it coming Starz!!! Love the show regardless of foreseeable events that some of us may look forward to. Keeping us on the edge and the excitement of what’s to come is exciting. I love the show and especially Omari! Good job hope to see it last as long as you can make it last! Thanks for giving me something new to look forward to.
