Following the season six finale of the hit series Power from Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Starz teased four new spin-offs that follow the popular characters at different places in time in their development. Power will join a very short list in the history of television to get four spin-offs.
The upcoming shows Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence, and Power Book V: Force are all set to enter development at the same time as fans get ready for a rush of new material. The first to be released, “Ghost ” will star Mary J. Blige as a cutthroat business woman and Wu-Tang’s Method Man as her lawyer. Raising Kanan will tell the story of how a young 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) got into the drug game. Influence will follow the ascension of Tate (Larenz Tate) as he rises to the position of governor. And Force will bring Ghost’s partner Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) to the forefront as we witness the events leading up to his move to Los Angeles.
“These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of Power’s most controversial characters while featuring a growing ensemble of complex, distinct characters along with the high-octane drama that set Power in a class of its own,” Starz executive Jeffery Hirsch told Deadline. “In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time.
The announcement of the spin-offs seem to be what 50 Cent has been alluding to with his several recent tweets with the hashtag #powerneverends.
