The show, which drew 2.5 million viewers, doubled the number of viewers of the show’s first episode in June.
Power, which features Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton and 50 Cent, drew an average of 4 million viewers per episode for its first season once Starz on Demand and Starz Play were added, the network said.
Power’s viewership is 71% African-American.
Beginning August 12 at 10 pm EST, Starz is slated to re-air the full first season of Power on Encore Black.
“I’m really proud of this project,” 50 Cent said in June. “I’ve been pretty much hands-on and involved with the entire process and I feel like my baby’s born. Omari was the perfect person for it. The stars lined up for me when started going through the casting process. He was the #1 person on the list for us to pick for the show.”
Also in June, it was announced that Power was been picked up for a 10-episode second season.
