*Brandon Victor Dixon will get more face time when Starz’s hit drama “Power” returns for its fifth season in summer 2018.
The show follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a drug kingpin living a double life who in Season 4 sought to find redemption.
Dixon, who recurred in seven episodes in Season 4 as the St. Patricks’ attorney Terry Silver, will be promoted to series regular status for Season 5, reports Deadline. While representing the St. Patricks, Silver is also carrying on a relationship with Ghost’s estranged wife, Tasha, played by Naturi Naughton.
Dixon is a two-time Tony nominee for his performances in Shuffle Along and The Color Purple. He’s also coming off a year-long stint starring as Aaron Burr in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton.
The actor, co-founder of WalkRunFly Productions, will also be seen on NBCUniversal International Studios’ upcoming series “Gone.”
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.
