"Power," the hip-hop-flavored drama from rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson about a nightclub owner who is also a drug kingpin, has been renewed for a second season, less than a week after its premiere on Starz.
Production on the 10-episode season is scheduled to start in September in and around New York. The show's creator and executive producer, Courtney Kemp Agboh, will continue as show runner.
Omari Hardwick stars in "Power" as wealthy James "Ghost" St. Patrick, who is living a double life as a club owner and drug lord. Although he wants to go legit, his criminal lifestyle continues to overshadow his world.
Jackson is an executive producer and also plays a small role in the drama as a prison inmate.
