With the much anticipated premiere of the final season of Power, Omari Hardwick and Lela Loren joined Sway’s Universe, sharing their thoughts on the series conclusion. Speaking on the impact of the show, Omari understands some viewer’s attachment to the storyline and their sorrow of it all coming to an end – saying that all these years have “allowed the fans to be a part of the process, locking in on Sundays to a very different fantasy.”
Hardwick and Loren both agree that although bittersweet, it’s time to go onto the next step in their careers. With rumors circulating that this isn’t Powers last season, the cast members go on to explain that season 6 has fifteen episodes, opposed to their usual ten, and the remaining five episodes are to be premiered in January – ultimately wrapping up the series. As to whether the characters will have spin-off series, that’s not completely off the table. Having such a positive experience with 50 Cent as their Executive Producer, Loren and Hardwick highly esteem the freedom of creativity 50 encourages.
This creative freedom bestowed upon the cast is apparent when Lela, who is also a writer and poet, pulls out a magnetic piece she wrote for her character, Angela “Angie” Valdes. The poem was generated as a rebuttal exercise in response to Hardwick’s initial poem for his infamous character, Ghost. Both coincide that their poems have eerily predicted the culmination of their characters. To see Loren graciously hit us with her verses, check out the interview below. The final season of Power premieres August 25, 8 p.m. ET on Starz.
