Just weeks after 50 Cent’s smash hit series, “Power” came to a dramatic season-end, Deadline reports that recurring star, #LarenzTate, has been promoted to a series regular for Season five.
For the real ‘Power’ fanatics, the move comes at no surprise, as Tate’s shady city councilman character showed his manipulative ways in the tail end of season four. Therefore, it was only right for show runner Courtney Kemp to allow his character to unfold in the forthcoming season.
For those who have yet to catch up, Tate plays Councilman Rashad Tate, a city councilman from Jamaica Queens. Although he helps James “Ghost” St. Patrick, played by Omari Hardwick, rebuild his image after being acquitted of murder; his underlying intentions have yet to be revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, his actions have proved him to be shadier than expected, as he convinces Ghost to use his daughter’s untimely death as a photo op.
In that, it will be interesting to see where Tate’s character goes in the new season, which will premiere in 2018.
