50 Cent’s ‘Power’ Is the No. 2 Show on Premium Cable
With the fourth season of Power set to premiere next month on Starz, the show is celebrating good news today (May 15). According to Deadline, Power is the No. 2 show on premium cable behind HBO’s mythical series Game of Thrones, which is at the top.
50 went on his Instagram page to announce the news but also vow to gain new viewers this season and become the top show on premium cable next year. “This season I will gain viewer ship and POWER will be #1,” he wrote. “Game of Thrones is great, but POWER is Raw, pure uncut this Season.”
From the looks of the trailer (watch below), the fourth season of Power is going to be intense. The show’s creator, executive producer and showrunner, Courtney A. Kemp, recently signed a new overall deal with Lionsgate and Starz. Not only will Kemp oversee Power she will also developed new shows for Starz in the future.
“Courtney A. Kemp is the complete showrunner package, and we’re thrilled to continue collaborating with such a creative talent and outstanding producer,” said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht in a statement.
It’s no secret that Power is a juggernaut program for Starz. The third season of Power delivered a record 8 million multiplatform viewers per episode, according to the network. The series has already been picked up for a fifth season as well.
In the meantime, the 10-episode fourth season of Power returns on June 25 starting at 12:01AM via the STARZ app and On Demand. The network's cable premiere will be at its regularly-scheduled time of 9PM ET on Starz.
