Expanding the universe of Power, 50 Cent and Starz announced three more spin-off series; Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force, which will join the previously revealed Power Book II: Ghost and bring the franchise to a total of four upcoming spin-offs. These spin-offs will be executive produced by Courtney A. Kemp and 50 Cent.
Starz President and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. What he thought the development of these spin-offs meant for both the franchise and the network. “In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into actual production and development at the same time. 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.”
The spin-off “Raising Kanan” is a prequel story that is set in the ’90s. The show explores the early years of Power character Kanan Stark, played by 50 Cent himself. The fourth book, “Influence,” will follow Larenz Tate’s character, Rashad Tate, as he pursues Power. The fifth spin-off, “Force,” will follow Joseph Sikora’s Tommy Egan as he leaves New York in pursuit of a new business venture. These series join the original spin-off, “Ghost,” made of an all-star cast including Mary J. Blige, Method Man, and many members of the original show and pick up where the flagship ends.
With the massive success that Power has become, it’s understandable that the show would receive the opportunity for spin-offs.
