Three More 'Power' Spinoffs Set At Starz

With the series finale of Power Sunday night on Starz, the network confirmed three more spinoffs of the hit drama series.

The three series join Power Book II: Ghost, which will star Mary J. Blige and Method Man. They are: 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," said Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz. "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."

Power Book III: Raising Kanan is described as "the prequel story that takes viewers back to the '90s and the early years of iconic Power character Kanan Stark. Power Book IV: Influence which follows Rashad Tate (played by Larenz Tate) in his ruthless pursuit of political power. Power Book V: Force follows Tommy Egan (played by Joseph Sikora) after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good.

Power Book II: Ghost premiers later this year. The timeline for the other three shows hasn't been announced yet.

All of the series is executive produced by series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp through her End of Episode production company and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television. Lionsgate TV produces the show for Starz.
