Joining series like Game of Thrones that are ending in 2019, Power will conclude its run this year after its sixth season airs. The network confirmed the news on Thursday.
“Season six brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the Power story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin. Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the Power universe,” Starz programming president Carmi Zlotnik said. Power has been the most-watched series for the premium cabler since its launch.
“We will follow some of your beloved Power characters beyond the scope of the initial series. But we will play with your expectations of which characters, where, and the master timeline of it all, creating a Power universe as unpredictable as the original,” said series creator Courtney Kemp.
“The last five seasons of Power have been an incredible ride for me and all of our supportive fans. We are far from over and I am excited to bring you more from the Power brand. I am proud that I was able to put a lasting stamp on this chapter with my directorial debut in an episode that features one of the wildest scenes ever on the show,” said 50 Cent.
We first reported that Power spinoffs were in development at the network when Kemp re-upped her overall deal at Starz.
No word on what the spinoffs will be about and which characters will carry over to them.
