Power, the story of James St. Patrick’s struggle from drug kingpin to a legitimate businessman, has held Starz’ audience captive since 2014. With season 6 on the horizon, you’ll want to make sure you’re ready to watch. Whether that means jumping into the new season, needing to binge through the last few, or even just dipping your toe into the series without spending a ton, we’ve got you covered.

As the sixth and final season starts, it’s looking like all of Ghost’s enemies are closing in on him, including the police, rival drug kingpins, and even members of his own family. Even his fiercely loyal right-hand man, Tommy Egan has betrayed him, in a tragic season 5 closer. Will Ghost pick up the pieces and finally make his dreams of going legitimate reality or will his empire crumble like the many Ozymandiases before him? Whatever happens, it’s almost assured that not everyone in this struggle is going to make it out alive.
