Power is 99.99% renewed for Season 3, according to series star Omari Hardwick.
Speaking to VH1 following the Season 2 premiere, Hardwick said the Starz drama is on already on the verge of being renewed for a third season:
I’m extremely blown away and flattered and in love with the show I signed up for, and in love with the fact that the fans are in love with it! But there is a part of me that is definitely surprised, I mean I had to toast the fact that we’re headed into probably 97-99.99% a season three and I never done three seasons of a show. Dark Blue was a really solid show and it stopped at season two. This is a big deal for me but I’m a little surprised because of that.
Hardwick’s confidence is well-founded, as Starz boss Chris Albrecht revealed today that the Power Season 2 premiere was highest-rated premiere episode of series in the network’s history:
