Larenz Tate has joined the cast of Starz’s hit drama series "Power" for its upcoming 4th season.
The series continues to build out its cast, as Tate joins recent additions including Charlie Murphy and "Hamilton" star Brandon Victor Dixon, also joining the series' 4th season which returns this summer.
Tate will play a city councilman from Jamaica Queens who crosses paths with the now imprisoned James “Ghost” St. Patrick (star Omari Hardwick). How exactly Tate will be used isn't public information at this time. You'll have to tune to find out.
Season 4 will open with “Ghost” behind bars, following his highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox - a crime he did not commit. Ghost can’t outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family’s safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.
From Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp, the “Power” cast is led by Hardwick as drug kingpin and nightclub impresario James “Ghost” St. Patrick; Joseph Sikora, as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays James’ fierce, loyal wife Tasha St. Patrick; and Lela Loren as his first love Assistant U.S. Attorney, Angela Valdes.
“Power” season three was the most-watched Starz original series ever, with a record of 7.1M viewers across all platforms and counting. The #1 original Starz drama also ranked #1 among all weekend cable programs for African American viewers during the 3rd season which ended last summer. Season 4 returns this summer.
