A trio of trailers and/or teasers released today for 3 Starz series – 2 that will be entering their second seasons, and 1 that will be making its premiere.
First, the highly anticipated return of original series “Power,” which is set for Saturday, June 6th at 9pm ET/PT.
The second season of “Power” features ten hour-long episodes, a bump from the first season’s order of eight episodes.
Omari Hardwick returns to reprise his role as James “Ghost” St. Patrick, Lela Loren is Angela Valdes, Naturi Naughton is Tasha St. Patrick, Joseph Sikora is Tommy Egan, Sinqua Walls is Shawn and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is Kanan.
From Executive Producer Jackson and show creator and Executive Producer Courtney Kemp Agboh (“The Good Wife”), “Power” season two picks up right where it left off: James “Ghost” St. Patrick doubling down on his drug business to save his nightclub and dream of a legitimate future. Ghost’s work troubles pale in comparison to juggling his relationship with his wife, Tasha, and his first love, Angela, who’s also an Assistant US Attorney investigating his drug organization.
Ghost is set further back from his dream by his business partner, Tommy, who loves the drug game, and his former mentor, Kanan, fresh out of jail and looking for revenge.
Season two has Ghost in a race against himself: Can he get out of the drug game alive before Angela discovers who he is?

Next… After just a single episode, Starz announced a season 2 pick up of its freshman series “’s Remorse” from executive producers Tom Werner, Maverick Carter, LeBron James, Mike O’Malley, Paul Wachter and Victor Levin.
The sophomore season of the half-hour scripted comedy series will feature 10 episodes – up from its 6-episode first season.
The first episode of “’s Remorse” debuted on October 4 on STARZ with a multiplatform performance of 1.3 million viewers in the first week.
“We’re thrilled with the overwhelming critical acclaim ‘Survivors Remorse’ has received and we look forward to continuing our partnership with such an all-star team,” said Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz.
“Survivor’s Remorse” follows Cam Calloway, played by Jessie T. Usher, a basketball phenom in his early 20’s who is suddenly thrust into the limelight after signing a multi-million dollar contract with a professional basketball team in Atlanta. Cam, along with his cousin and confidant Reggie Vaughn, played by RonReaco Lee, move to Georgia to start Cam’s journey to success. The two confront the challenges of carrying needy family members and their strong ties to the impoverished community that they come from. Cam, Reggie and an unforgettable group of characters wrestle with the rewards and pitfalls of stardom, love, and loyalty.
The cast includes Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, Teyonah Parris, and Erica Ash.

Teaser for season 2 below (emphasis on “teaser”):
And finally… a brand new series coming this fall, although no official date yet.
Jill Marie Jones plays the female lead role of Amanda Fisher in the STARZ original series “Ash vs Evil Dead,” the long-awaited serial follow-up to the classic horror film franchise “The Evil Dead,” which will follow disgraced Michigan State Trooper Fisher (played by Jones), after the grisly murder of her partner, as she sets out to find anti-hero Ash, and prove his responsibility for the crime. But as she soon learns, Ash and his cohorts may be mankind’s only hope against the plague of “evil dead.”
Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the “Evil Dead.”
Joining Jones and Campbell in the series are Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo.
The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes.
Sam Raimi is directing the first episode that he wrote with Ivan Raimi.
Filming is taking place this spring, on location in New Zealand, for a premiere on STARZ in late 2015.
Starz has released a graphic teaser (again, emphasis on “teaser”) which is embedded below:
