‘Power Season 6’: How To Catch Up Before The Series Returns And Ends

So, you’ve heard about Power on Starz but haven’t had the chance to check it out yet. It’s the network’s most-watched show and this month, the crime drama returns and promises to go out with a bang. Season six of the series will mark the end of its reign—though a few spinoffs are in the works—but there’s still time for you to cram for the premiere on August 25th. We want to help you get that part together.

But first, a little introduction for Power newbies. Showrunner Courtney Kemp is an executive producer with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. 50 Cent acts in the series alongside Omari Hardwick, Joseph Sikora, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren, Rotimi, and La La Anthony. Childhood friends Ghost (Hardwick) and Tommy (Sikora) grew up together in New York—along with 50 Cent’s Kanan—and got into the drug game together. Ghost has one foot in the dirt and the other in a legit business, but his loyalties are constantly tested.

He could lose everything to the feds, his family, or shifty alliances if he’s not wise. And that’s a challenge. The relationship between Ghost and Tommy is the core of the show, but family ties, street codes, and the law all add to the intensity of each season. Viewers will not only find drama, but sex, lies, violence, and good music. Trust me, you’ll easily choose which characters to hate and which to support in their run for power. Here’s how to catch up without buying the DVDs.

Starz App

The easiest way to burn through each episode is by watching Power on the Starz app. You can stream the app on any device by downloading it via the Starz website, Apple, Roku, Google Play, the Microsoft Store, or Amazon Prime. Right now, Starz is offering a free 7-day trial for newcomers.

Amazon

As mentioned above, you can watch it with your Amazon Prime account using the Starz app. As an alternative, you can buy Starz as an Amazon Prime channel. After a free trial period for new subscribers, the monthly fee for Starz is $8.99.

If you don’t have Prime, you can purchase seasons one through five to stream at a price range of $8.99 to $12.99 a pop.

Hulu

The first five seasons are available to watch on Hulu with the Starz add-on. At this time, new Hulu users can access content for free for one month, but the Starz add-on will cost $8.99 per month after the trial period.

YouTube

Individual episodes of Power can be purchased for $1.99 on the site or you can buy entire seasons for $12.99 each. At this time, YouTube’s offerings only go up to season four, so you’d have to go elsewhere to watch season five.   

Netflix

Power is not streaming on Netflix in America, but Netflix users in the UK can watch every season of Power right now and will be able to see all-new season six episodes beginning on August 26. The streaming platform will make new episodes available each Monday thereafter.

To all Power fans on social media, now’s the time to throw up the “Only 10 Days To Go” meme on your feeds and get ready for the countdown. Power officially returns to Starz on Sunday, August 25.
