STARZ has released the trailer for its hit crime drama-thriller series Power, set to return with season 5 this summer, on Sunday, July 1.
From Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and creator Courtney Kemp (also known for The Good Wife), the show revolves around James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), the owner of a popular New York City nightclub, called “Truth”, and major player in one of the city’s biggest illegal drug networks.
The US premium channel revealed that “Season 5 picks up with James “Ghost” St. Patrick in a dangerous alliance with his former drug partner and brother-in-arms Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) and mortal enemy Kanan Stark (50 Cent). As Ghost mourns the death of his daughter, Raina, he searches for vengeance and throws himself into his work, reaching new, professional heights. But with this newfound publicity, his quest for blood threatens to dismantle his legitimate legacy. Ghost is blind to new enemies and, as the Feds grow closer to unmasking his true identity, Ghost must remain vigilant toward those wanting to take him down for his past criminal enterprises”.
“My daughter’s dead. Somebody’s gotta pay for it. Once I’m done with Dre, I’m out of the game for good,” Ghost is heard saying in the trailer, which features him teaming up with Tommy and Kanan to take down their mutual enemy Dre (Rotimi Akinosho) and avenge Raina’s death.
“In the war for vengeance trust is a weapon.” onscreen lines read throughout the trailer, while Dies Irae’s 2018 single “Apashe” (ft. Black Prez), from the album “Requiem”, is playing in the background.
