STARZ celebrated the highly anticipated final season of the original crime drama Power. Power has broken records on both the STARZ network and cable. Fans eagerly supported the events throughout the city in anticipation of the series finale. The cast and crew made their whirlwind NYC press tour, and it was one for the records.
On Monday, Saks Fifth Avenue celebrated the final season with an exclusive look at their New York Flagship windows. Saks and The Head of Costume Design, Frank Flemming, created 5 window displays with outfits inspired from the show. Each window showcased different scenes of how wardrobe styling helps actors merge into the characters.
The characters’ signature looks were on display — high-end glamorous looks that Ghost and Tasha portray; along with the gritty street life style that the character Tommy can’t seem to shake; chic clean corporate looks worn on the FBI attorney, Angela Valdez; to the sleek, tailored suits seen at Club Truth worn by Ghost and Dre. Saks and Flemming effortlessly gave us a glimpse into the “Power” of wardrobe on set that changes the whole ambiance and sets a mood.
Bella TV had the chance to speak with Omari Hardwick, Joseph Sikora, La La Anthony, and others about wrapping the show. Other cast members that showed up included Shane Johnson, Jerry Ferrara, Lorenz Tate, William Sadler, Monique Gabriela, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Michael Rainey Jr., Michael J. Ferguson, and Evan Handler, along with series creator Courtney A. Kemp.
Tuesday, the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden in New York City, was celebrity-filled with a red carpet event, exclusive surprise concert, and screening of the season premiere episode, ahead of its Sunday, August 25, season premiere at 8 p.m. on STARZ.

Smith, Dean Winters, Tina Knowles-Lawson & Richard Lawson, Brandon Michael Hall, J.R. Ramirez, J.R. Smith, Rohan Oza, Lil Mama, and Remy Ma.

Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

ABOUT THE SHOW: From executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney Kemp (The Good Wife) comes Season 6 of the hit drama Power. Season 6 picks up with James “Ghost” St. Patrick seeking vengeance. His former drug partner and brother in arms must pay for the ultimate betrayal. Rocked to his core by the perfidiousness and cruelties of those he once called his family, Ghost devotes himself to one notion: Success is the best revenge, with all intentions of getting both. Ghost aims to get even with Tommy, get the QCP built to consecrate Raina’s legacy, and finally achieve a thriving legitimate lifestyle with no criminal strings attached. Ghost’s need to wrest satisfaction and happiness from this world by any means necessary — is the most danger he’s ever faced. As the Feds grow closer to convicting him, Ghost must remain vigilant toward those wanting to take him down for his past criminal enterprises.
