Gabriela Curnen (Blanca Rodriguez) has also been promoted to series regular. The actress plays an incorruptible NYPD cop who has been going after Angela Valdes (Lela Loren).

“Power” season 6 is set to premiere in 2019. The producers are yet to announce a release date. The plot of expected to focus on the rivalry between Ghost and Tommy, as the two friends have turned into enemies.
