Everything you need to know about 50 Cent's popular Starz & Netflix series; The cast, the air date and rumours.....
Power only arrived in the UK as a Netflix-exclusive in 2016 but 50 Cent’s crime drama is quickly turning into a firm fan-favourite.
Following the major twists and turns that are expected to happen in season 5, Power fans are currently counting down the days until Power cast members Kanan, Tommy, Ghost and more return to their screens for a sixth season.
There is currently no official release date for Power season 6 however we do know is that it’s definitely happening.
In March 2018, confirmation of Power season 6 was made via the show's official Instagram account.
"The boys are back. Season 5 premieres Sunday, July 1 on @starz AND we’ll be back for a Season 6," they wrote.
However, given that all the previous seasons came out around June/July, anticipating a June or July 2019 release wouldn’t be unrealistic.
Speaking about Power season 5, director Courtney A Kemp previously promised that "the main characters are less safe than they have ever been before." This suggests a number of characters may not make it to Power season 6. However expect all the biggest characters from the Power cast to make a return to your TV screens, including Power actors Ghost (Omari Hardwick), Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Tasha (Naturi Naughton).
It has now been confirmed that former Californiacation actor Evan Handler will be a regular character in Power Season 6.
He will reportedly play a character called Jacob Warner, a new US Attorney for the Eastern. District.
There will also be returns for Mike Dupod (Jason Micic) and Monique Gabriela Curnen (Blanca Rodriguez), who have been promoted to regulars in the upcoming season.
Courtney Kemp has also confirmed that Tommy's mother, actress Patricia Kalember Gerroll, will be in Power season 6.
Posting a picture of her on the set of the upcoming season, Kemp described her as "one of my favorite actors that I’ve ever worked with."
The cast of Power tend to start filming in September and drop a teaser some months later. The first teaser trailer for Power season 5 was released in March 2018.
There are currently no spoilers for season 6, however what we do know is that Ghost and Tasha St. Patrick are seeking revenge for their daughter Raina’s death.
We’ve been told that Ghost “won’t stop until he’s got revenge” so the next two seasons will be intense.
Starz has officially revealed that fans will get a first look at the official Power season 6 trailer on 30th September. Tweeting following the dramatic Power season 5 finale, the said: "This season might be over, but we’ve got your back. Get your first look at #PowerTV Season 6 exclusively on the @STARZ App starting September 30."
“We’ve created a template for the show that is non-Hollywood,” Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson told Deadline. “Anyone can go, there’s no one in the show that can’t die.”
“This show was not designed to go 10 seasons,” added series creator Courtney Kemp. “It was not designed to go 15 seasons. It’s not a crime procedural or a sitcom. It’s a closed-ended story that really begins and, in some way, ends with Ghost.”
Expect lots of dramatic twists and turns in Power season 6, with a big chance that one of your favourite characters may die.
As of yet, there has been no official confirmation regarding the official plot or storyline for Power.
However Power have given a hint about a possible storyline involving Tommy and two of Dre's 'goons'.
The official Power Instagram account suggested there is a "new 1, 2 and 3" on the scene.
Power actor Larenz Tate dropped some cryptic hints about season 6 via his Instagram account.
He shared a picture of himself alongside Ghost and Dre, showing a hypothetical conversation between the three of them.
