Power Season Four kicks off late June

One of the shows I fully plan to catch up on this summer is Power. A lot of my friends say this is the show Empire aspires to be. I like the cast and the premise sounds interesting enough. But I’ll need to hurry up as Power Season Four starts June 25.

Rather than start playing around with new days and times, Starz announced Power Season Four will continue airing at 9 p.m. Season Four runs for 10 weeks.

Here’s the trailer:

For folk like me who’ve been missing out on the show, Starz is kicking off a Power Play marathon starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. This is a comprehensive marathon as the first three seasons will run to lead up to the Season 4 premiere.

Here’s the synopsis:

Season Four picks up on the heels of James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick’s highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox—a crime he did not commit. Ghost can’t outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family’s safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.
“Power” is a visionary drama that straddles the glamorous Manhattan lifestyles of the rich and infamous and the underworld of the international drug trade. The cast is led by Omari Hardwick as drug kingpin and nightclub impresario James “Ghost” St. Patrick, Joseph Sikora, as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays Ghost’ fierce, loyal wife Tasha St. Patrick and Lela Loren as his first love, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Angela Valdes.

Want to have the series to watch at your leisure? Power Season 3 is arriving on Blu-Ray/DVD on June 13 and will include a season recap and making of the show feature.
