After last season’s record-setting premiere numbers, Starz didn’t waste anytime ordering a 3rd season of its hit drama series, “Power.”
The second season premiered on Saturday, June 6, 2015, drawing 1.427 million viewers. Not only were those numbers a series high, they were the highest ratings ever for an episode of a Starz original drama, the cable TV network said at the time.
The upcoming 3rd season will comprise of 10 episodes, and is set to premiere in July; although an exact day hasn’t been given yet.
Expect to see star Omari Hardwick reprise his role as James “Ghost” St. Patrick; Naturi Naughton as Tasha St. Patrick; Lela Loren as Angela Valdes; and other key players.
From Executive Producer Curtis Jackson and show creator and Executive Producer Courtney A. Kemp, “Power” season 3 picks up right where season 2 left off with a little more oomph: “I really want to blow people’s minds,” says showrunner Kemp of the season ahead. “I really want to pump more octane in to season 3. More things will happen and there’s more stimuli. It’s not that you can’t have quiet moments, but I want people to have this adrenaline-fueled experience at home. We have that in movies all the time, but I want to reach in and make you have a reaction.”
I thought that season 1 (at least) and maybe even season 2 would be available to stream on Netflix by now, for those who haven’t kept up with the series, and are interested in becoming acquainted with it ahead of season 3. But neither season appears to be. I just searched Netflix’s website. Hulu isn’t carrying the series either. So you’ll have to buy each season on VOD platforms like iTunes and Amazon Video if you want to catch up.
To get you ready for season 3, Starz has released a new video via its behind-the-scenes series, “The Fix,” as host Rick Fox takes you all over New York City, showing you the various locations where Power is filmed. It’s followed by a teaser trailer for the upcoming new season.
