Power season six is taking a short hiatus. The show hit screens on Starz in August with a season premiere which concluded the cliffhanger. The latest series has seen lots of characters getting killed off and many more to follow. Season six is the final instalment and to up the ante further, the run will be split into two with the first 10 instalments hitting screens in 2019 and the remainder coming in 2020.
When will Power season 6, episode 9 be released?
Fans of Power are going to face an agonising wait ahead after Starz confirmed the next episode would be airing in two weeks.
A post appeared on the show’s official Twitter account which read: “Get in on all the Season 6 hype. Catch up on Season 6 before an all-new #PowerTV returns October 27 on the @STARZ App.”
Along with the tweet, there was a short promo for Scorched Earth which hinted more lives could be on the line in the next instalment.
Underneath the post, some fans expressed their disappointment with one user called KMY posting: “No new episode on Sunday ?? Better make the next episode two hours.”

The Power account replied to the fans, promising: “It will be worth the wait.”
Another user called @Meje1_ also said: “No new episode on 20th?”
Again, the Power account responded: “No. Make sure you catch up on all of season 6 before 10/27. We are bringing another episode.”
But a third disgruntled fan called @autoassign said: “Boy everyone caught up ain’t no one missing an episode, why you makin us wait [sic].”

This means Power season six, episode nine won’t be airing on Starz in America until Sunday, October 27.
British fans are likely to be equally perplexed with the forthcoming instalment called Scorched Earth not dropping on Netflix UK until Monday, October 28.
While it’s unclear why Power has taken a break for a week, it could be to do with the way US shows air their programmes.
In America, shows tend to take short week-long hiatuses midway through a run and it’s common for programmes to take breaks especially if there are many episodes in the run.

According to ScreenerTV: “If there were no hiatuses, your season would begin in late September and end at the end of January, and then you’d have to wait eight months to discover how that cliffhanger turns out.”
So it seems, this explanation means there will be shorter wait for fans between the midseason finale and when the series returns the following year.
However, some fans were worried the show had been cancelled after the show wasn’t on thids.
Starz has released a short synopsis for the episode which reads: “As Ghost (played by Omari Hardwick) and Tommy (Joseph Sikora) move forward with their plan to kill Jason Micic (Mike Dupud), Tommy enacts a plan of his own.
“Dre (Olurotimi Akinosho) uses a cleverly devised ruse to force Tommy’s organization to rebel against him.
“Tommy gets his comeuppance when he is faced with battling for his life against the kin of one of his past victims.”
There are two more episodes left of Power season six this year for fans to enjoy as the show comes back in the New Year to wrap up the epic New York mafia series once and for all.
LaKeisha star La La Anthony has dropped a cryptic clue hinting at her return despite the character’s death.
Actresss Lela Loren has spoke about why she left the series as Angela Valdes after the character was killed off.
Power season 6 will return to Netflix UK on Monday, October 28 from 8am
