Power is already renewed through Season 5, but the series has inched closer to a potential Season 6 with creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp singing a multi-year exclusive overall deal with Starz and Lionsgate.
Commenting on the deal, Kemp said:
“This new deal presents a wonderful opportunity to extend my creative efforts on Power while developing new shows for Lionsgate. I am grateful to Jon [Feltheimer], Kevin and Chris for this warm welcome to the Lionsgate family, and I’m looking forward to a continued relationship with Chris, Carmi and the entire team at Starz.”
Chris Albrecht, president and CEO of Starz, added:
“Courtney A. Kemp is the complete showrunner package, and we’re thrilled to continue collaborating with such a creative talent and outstanding producer. We are proud to see Courtney receive the recognition she deserves in our industry and are pleased the combined ‘power’ of Starz and Lionsgate offers even greater opportunities for her – and us – in the creative community.”
Power Season 4 premieres June 25 with an all-day marathon, with Season 5 slated for summer 2018.
