“I am thrilled that Gary Lennon’s contribution to Power has finally been recognized,” series creator Kemp told Deadline today. “Gary is a brilliant storyteller, a fantastic director, and one of my favorite people I’ve ever worked with. I’m excited to collaborate with him on this next season of Power and hope to work with him on multiple projects for years to come.”

Lennon will also return to the director’s chair on the Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren and Joseph Sikora-led NYC tale in Season 6. The Justified alum helmed the ninth episode of the current fifth season.

Power was renewed for a sixth season back in March. Kemp has been the only showrunner on the series since its 2014 debut.
