In anticipation of the upcoming season five return of STARZ Original series "Power," Starz is giving viewers an exciting preview of what's to come with an early look at footage from the brand new season. First, relive the big moments of season four that found Ghost behind bars for the first time, new drug wars and bosses on the rise, hot volatile romances and a shocking death that still has everyone reeling. Binge all ten episodes of the fourth season starting at 12:10PM ET/PT and watch it all culminate to the broadcast of an exclusive first-look at a scene from the season five premiere episode at 10PM ET/PT on Sunday, January 7th only on STARZ.

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. took to social media this week to help in the fight to keep "Power" on Optimum.

G-Unit's Tony Yayo recently promised to end his Optimum subscription if "Power" did not return.
Optimum I'm dropping y'all service if y'all take off @starz.power .

Earlier this week, 50 Cent and "Power" co-stars Omari Hardwick and Joseph Sikora reacted to the Optimum fallout.
Which means you won't be seeing POWER in New York if you have Optimum as a cable carrier call and complain. #denofthieves #denofthieves Jan 19

5: I'm telling y'all...they dropped us. Ace Boom: No comment O: wtf? Kanan/Tommy/Ghost: Thas that dumb shit. -ironically i post this while walking to the locker room to wish my guys luck in the game. I think about the beautiful thing about my former world of sports vs. my present. The ball truly don't lie. You either make the play or you don't. You either perform at a high level or you wallow in mediocrity. You either become one of the great teams of all times while becoming a unique player or you are never spoken about. We as a team within this industry of television...have become one of the more special ones to ever suit up. & yet in still....certain folk refuse to not only give us our due, they have stupidly chosen to not even allow us to perform anymore for you the millions of beast coast fans. -Fans: Tell @Optimum to bring back POWER! Don't miss the next season! Call 844-71-STARZ and tell them no! #KeepSTARZ
