*Fans of the Starz series “Power” are about to see a lot more of Larenz Tate.
After recurring in four episodes during the recently-wrapped fourth season, the “House of Lies” alum has been promoted to series regular for Season 5, according to Deadline.
“Power” follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a drug kingpin living a double life who in season 4 sought to find redemption.
Tate was introduced as city councilman Rashad Tate, who represents Jamaica Queens and crosses paths with Ghost.
Courtney A. Kemp serves as the creator, showrunner and executive producer of Power. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon serve as executive producers.
Tate’s resume includes the role of Bart “Black Shawn” Johnston on FX’s “Rescue Me” and the male lead in ABC drama pilot “Salamander.” On the big screen, Tate most recently appeared in “Girls Trip.”
Season 5 of “Power” premieres in 2018.
