July 17th couldn’t come quick enough for #Power fans! As we reported yesterday, the show broke viewership records during its season premier; and not too long later, 50 Cent took to Twitter to let the cat out of the bag, Starz wants to renew for two more seasons!
“You know its gonna get crazier and crazier, POWER Renewed for SEASON 4 & 5,” he tweeted.
Chris Albrecht, Starz president and CEO speaks very highly of 50 and his creative contribution to not only the show but the network:
“In today’s content landscape, it is challenging for a series to stand out, but Courtney is a singular voice working in television today. In Curtis, we not only have an immense talent, but an executive producer who brings a unique perspective, an authentic voice and passionate fan base that has helped in a large part propel the success of the series,” he said. “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.”
We don’t know about y’all but TSR loves them some Ghost, Tommy, Tasha, Angela and Kanan!
Apparently, the shows executive producers knew fans would cling to the cast from the jump, according to Courtney Kemp, one of the exec. producers.
“Chris Albrecht and the Starz team have believed in this show from the very beginning. Everyone here at Power is deeply grateful for the tremendous support we have received from the fans of the show, which made today’s announcement possible,” said Kemp. “I am humbled by this vote of confidence from the network and the opportunity to continue to employ our excellent cast and crew, who work tirelessly to bring this show to life.”
50 shares, “I knew Power was going to be something special from the first concept meeting I had with Mark Canton. The fans’ support for the show has been the driving force of its success and I can’t wait to bring them two more seasons full of action and suspense.”
Judging from season 3’s premier, this season is going to be CRAZY! So we can only imagine what they have yo their sleeves for 4 & 5!
