Power started its run on Starz in 2014, and chronicles the life of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), who deals drugs under the nickname "Ghost". St. Patrick wants to get out of crime and do something legitimate, and sets out to become a nightclub owner.

Power has been an ensemble show from the beginning, with James' family featured prominently. His marrige to Tasha (Naturi Naughton) has been falling apart, and he's trying to be a good dad to his son, Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.).

James finds himself trying to balance the lucrative life that dealing drugs can bring him against the yearning for a legitimate gig, made all the harder by butting heads with his rival, Kanan (50 Cent).

The series debuted to audience acclaim, and quickly became one of the highest rated shows in the Starz history. Critics were pretty mixed on the first season of Power, but reaction to the second season forward has been pretty favorable.

The Madison Square Garden debut of Power's sixth season will take place on August 20th, while the regular season will kick off on Starz on August 25th.
