“You made this mess, you fix it,” a very pissed off Naturi Naughton’s Tasha tells her estranged husband James/Ghost (Omari Hardwick) in the life or death, truly ride or die trailer for the sixth and final season of Power, as you can see above.
Or as Joseph Sikora’s Tommy Egan declares: “This is war!”
Full of alliances new and old, a pounding Phil Collins cover tune, and chess moves, literally and figuratively, the just over two-minute Season 6 trailer for the Starz series just dropped at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, with Hardwick and Sikora plus co-stars Lela Loren, Rotimi, La La Anthony and Larenz Tate onstage. Already anticipated to launch spin-offs galore, the supersized 15-episode last season of the Courtney Kemp-created NYC crime drama debuts on August 25.
Of course, NOLA’s Superdome won’t be the only arena Power is playing over the next few weeks. The most- watched show on Starz will be having its world premiere for the new season at Madison Square Garden on August 20, with the cast and creators in attendance and EP Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson set to rock the legendary venue.
Coming off a Season 5 that saw the death of Jackson’s Kanan character and very direct conflicts on multiple fronts boiling between Ghost, a drug lord trying to pass in the straight world, and almost everybody, including his own Michael Rainey Jr-portrayed son, Kemp has long hinted that Season 6 will not see all of the core characters exit alive.
Today’s trailer for the Jerry Ferrara and Shane Johnson co-starring and Gary Lennon co-showrun two-time NAACP Image Award-winning drama hits that nail on the head very hard, if you know what I mean?
Take a look.
