Starz has announced that the cable network has renewed its Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson-produced drama series "Power" for a second season, after last weekend's premiere, which drew a total of 2 million viewers, attracting a more diverse and younger audience for the network.

"Power" is a crime drama set in two different worlds - the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade. James “Ghost” St. Patrick has it all: a beautiful wife, a gorgeous Manhattan penthouse, and the hottest, up-and-coming new nightclub in New York. His club, Truth, caters to the elite: the famous and infamous boldface names that run the city that never sleeps. As its success grows, so do Ghost’s plans to build an empire. However, Truth hides an ugly reality. It’s a front for Ghost’s criminal underworld; a lucrative drug network, serving only the wealthy and powerful. As Ghost is seduced by the prospect of a legitimate life, everything precious to him becomes unknowingly threatened. Once you’re in, can you ever get out?

The cast is led by Omari Hardwick who is joined by Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton and Joseph Sikora. Hardwick stars as ‘James “Ghost” St. Patrick’; Loren plays ‘Angela Valdes’, an old flame of James’s who unexpectedly reenters his life; Naughton will play ‘Tasha St. Patrick’, wife, confidant and willing accomplice to James and Sikora plays ‘Tommy Egan’, childhood best friend and business partner to “Ghost.”

Courtney Kemp Agboh serves as executive producer and showrunner. Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and David Knoller also serve as executive producers. The series is produced in association with CBS Television Studios.

“I am thrilled and excited to have the opportunity to create a season two that we plan to be bigger and better than the first,” shared series creator Courtney Kemp Agboh.

Production on season 2 is set to begin in September.

    I couldn't make it through more than 20 min. It was really light on dialogue, and it was more of a music video than an engaging series.

    I actually thought it was a decent first episode. I'll be watching to see if it gets better.

    It's so sad that Courtney Kemp Agboh created this garbage! I really thought that 50 cent was created this.
