The sixth and final season of Power will consist of 15 episodes instead of the usual 10, and it will be broken up into two parts.

The announcement came Friday during the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, the premium cable network said in a press release.

The first half of the season will premiere on Aug. 25 and consist of 10 episodes. The last five episodes will air in January 2020.

There will also be an aftershow following each episode, Starz programming boss Carmi Ziotnik said. It will be titled Power Confidential and feature interviews with the cast, executive producers and special guests.

Starz has previously said Season 6 will pick up with James “Ghost” St. Patrick seeking vengeance. His former drug partner and brother in arms must pay for the ultimate betrayal. Rocked to his core by the perfidiousness and cruelties of those he once called his family, Ghost devotes himself to one notion: Success is the best revenge, with all intentions of getting both.

The final season will mark the directorial debut of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who serves as an executive producer through his production company G-Unit Film and Television and appeared in the first five seasons as Kanan.

Emmy Award-winning director Anthony Hemingway (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story and Underground) will helm the finale.

The drama stars Omari Hardwick, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora, Michael Rainey Jr., Rotimi and  La La Anthony. Power is the #1 rated show on Starz.
