Who is in the Power cast?

As things heat up in Power, one thing is certain – nobody is safe.

Talking about the Power season 5 cast following the season 4 finale, the show's creator Courtney A Kemp told Deadline: "Look, no-one's been safe on our show for quite some time, but obviously, the main characters have had longer lives.

"We are reaching the end of this journey, so the main characters are less safe than they have ever been before."

Expect all the biggest characters from the Power cast to make a return, including Power actors Kanan (50 Cent), Ghost (Omari Hardwick), Tommy (Joseph Sikora), Dre (Rotimi Akinosho), Tariq (Michael Rainey) or Angela (Lela Loren) – but they may not see the Power season five finale.

When is the Power season five release date?

On March 13th 2018, it was confirmed that Power will be returning to Starz for its fifth season on Sunday, July 1st. 

"The boys are back. Season 5 premieres Sunday, July 1 on @starz," they wrote on the official Power Instagram page, before confirming that the show will also be returning for a sixth season. 


In February 2018, Joseph Sikora - who plays Tommy in the series - appeared to confirm that Power will be returning to our TV screens in June 2018.

The actor posted a Snapchat in his car where he mentioned the potential release month.

 
In September 2017, Starz confirmed in a now-deleted tweet that a 2018 release date is expected. There is currently no exact date but expect Power to return in June or July, similar to this year.

Rotimi, who plays character Dre, later tweeted "see you in 2018" 

 

Any Power season 5 spoilers?

Despite the number of deaths in Power season 4, the next season isn’t expected to be gloomy.

"Of course, it can get worse," Courtney A Kemp told Deadline: "Because no-one's been caught for anything yet.

"You know, there's always another way that things can go badly on Power, but then also there might be some great joy and some great success. People might come out ahead. I don't know. Maybe two of our characters are going to fall back in love. Who knows?" 

Fans can also expect major plot twists, similar to season 4, however Starz will be hoping that 50 Cent doesn’t leak any more episodes.

The rapper dropped a hint that fans can expect a dramatic twist featuring himself and Tariq actor Michael Rainey Jr! "POWER season 5, l change my mind fuck this kid and Ghost. l want my fuckin corners back," he captioned the image.
