Posted by

The story of 50 Cent’s Power isn’t ending with its series finale on Sunday (February 9). Starz has greenlit three additional spinoffs of the hit show, expanding the franchise to a total of five series.

Power’s first offshoot, Power Book II: Ghost, was announced last year. The upcoming drama will now be joined by Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force.

“In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time,” Starz’s president CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”

50 and Power creator Courtney A. Kemp will executive produce all of the spinoffs. Mary J. Blige and Method Man have been cast in Power Book II: Ghost, which 50 says could debut as early as June 2020.

No official premiere dates for any of the spinoffs have been announced. The original Power’s final episode is already available to watch on-demand but will broadcast on Starz at 8 p.m. Eastern on Sunday night.
