There is good news today for Power fans! The popular show produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Power, now has a total of 4 spinoff shows in the works. The spinoff, Power Book II: Ghost, has been added to the list of shows from the Starz television series. Mary J. Blige teamed up with 50 Cent and announced late last year that she will star in the new show. Method Man is also expected to appear in Book II.
The other 3 shows, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force will uncover additional layers of popular characters on the show. Raising Kanan will dive into the story of Kanan Stark, played by 50 Cent. Influence will explore political leader Rashad Tate, played by actor Larenz Tate and Force will focus more on character Tommy Egan’s story. Naturi Naughton (Tasha) and Michael Rainy Jr. (Tariq) will also appear in Book II. In the new show, Tariq attends college, but not much has been revealed about Mary J. Blige’s or Method Man’s characters.
Power ran for 6 full seasons on Starz beginning in 2014. It is one of the highest-rated television shows on cable television. Jeffery Hirsch, President, and CEO of Starz said, “In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time.” Power’s final episode aired February 9, 2020. Power Book II: Ghost will premier this summer and continue the saga of the big rich town.
