A definite hit for the Starz network, as hundreds of thousands of you tuned in every week, leading up to the season finale, which drew its highest audience, at just over 1 million, from just about 490,000 for episode 1, the second season of “Power” premieres on Starz on June 6, 2015.
Ahead of that, if you haven’t seen the first season, or if you did watch, but want to revisit it before season 2 starts, you should know that the entire first season is now out on various home video platforms, including VOD, on all digital platforms.
“Power” tells the story of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who caters to the city’s elite. He wants to build an empire and turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: Ghost 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 some 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.
The series cast includes Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren, Joseph Sikora, 50 Cent, La La Anthony, and Victor Garber.
The series hails from Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh (“The Good Wife”).
Binge-watch away if you must, before season 2 premieres.
Here’s a newly-released featurette that preps you for what’s coming (as an aside, I wasn’t aware that Jaime Hector had joined the cast):
