Five days after Power returned with a record-setting ratings surge in its second-season premiere, Starz has renewed the drama starring and executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson for Season 3.

On Saturday, the Season 2 premiere drew 1.43 million viewers, making it the network’s most-watched original series season debut. It was up 209% from its Season 1 debut in June 2014 and 32% from the Season 1 finale in August. Over all plays on the weekend, the Season 2 bow brought in 3.62 million viewers — the most watched original series episode ever for the channel.

Power is from CBS TV Studios and executive producers Jackson, Mark Canton and Randall Emmett. Created/executive produced by Courtney Kemp Agboh, it centers on wealthy New York City nightclub owner James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), who is living a double life as a drug kingpin.
