Power Season 6 Synopsis
Power Season 6 finds Ghost eager to take revenge. His former drug partner and brother in arms will have to pay for the betrayal. James Patrick realizes that the success is the best revenge, and those whom he once called his family should learn that he is about to get both.
Ghost is going to improve his relationships with Tommy, complete the Queens Child Project to consecrate Raina's legacy, and after all achieve his primary goal, a prosperous legitimate lifestyle with no ties to his criminal past.
However, it's worth noting the Ghost's attempt to gain satisfaction and happiness in this world by all means is the most serious threat he couldn't even imagine. Given the Feds are becoming closer to him, Ghost should be careful with those who prosecute him for his past criminal affairs.
Power was a success within five seasons. To be honest, it's not clear for us, why STARZ opted to cancel the crime drama after Season 6. If we take a look at the statistics of Power Season 5, we should discover that the season premiere, despite has lost 7.56% of the viewing audience versus its predecessor but garnered much more that the show's pilot episode.
Power Season 5 premiere has drawn 1.554 million viewers with a 0.62 key demo (-20.51%) among adults (P18-49). At the same time, Power S01E01 has garnered only 0.46 million viewers. The viewership was steady for five seasons, and we are sure that the upcoming, sixth round of the series would bring even more viewers.
Also worth noting that Power Season 5 has received the universal acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, both critics and viewers have written lots of positive reviews, with a score of 8.8/10 and a 100% approval rating from critics, as well as a score of 4.5/5 and a 90% approval rating among the viewers.
