Everyone is impatiently waiting for the season debut of the final season of Power. Courtney Kemp teased fans by speaking upon its conclusion, promising a shocking ending that would challenge viewers.
“I don’t think it’s been this hard to write a script since I wrote my first script for The Bernie Mac Show when I first got into the business. I want people to like it, but also know that you can’t please everyone, especially with a series finale. This is not one of those situations where people are going to walk away from it going, ‘Oh, I knew this was going to happen all along!’
Fueled by vengeance, Ghost (Omari Hardwick) will enter these final 15 episodes wanting to both even the score with his childhood pal and former dealing partner Tommy (Joseph Sikora) – who shot FBI attorney/ Ghost’s lover Angela (Lela Loren) in the season 5 finale – and keep one step ahead of the feds, who are hellbent on making him pay for past deeds.
I have a way to end this that’s going to challenge the audience and be a different thing for TV. For people who don’t even watch the show, they may want to watch. It’s scary, but it’s fun. It’s something we’ve never done before.”
Kemp isn’t done yet. She currently has a couple of Power spin-offs under her belt that she’s preparing for. She described her new moves as the next “several new chapters.” She isn’t able to speak too much of it but she’s excited to be able to follow up with another banger flick.
“I can’t tell you any of the characters. But things are happening very quickly and we expect the audience to have something to watch in the same Power time slot next year.”
The final season titled The Final Betrayal premieres on Starz, August 25 at 8 P.M.
