50 Cent introduces four new Power spin-offs: Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power IV: Influence, Power Book V: Force.

What We Know:

  • According to Deadline, last summer, Power executives unveiled that the Power Universe would expand with more Power spin-offs; the up-comping Power Universe spin-offs are starring more prominent celebrities.
  • Secondly, Power Book II: Ghost, stars Mary J. Blige; the singer will play the role of Monet, a strewed businesswoman. Additionally, Method Man will play the role of David Maclean, an ethically charged lawyer. Power Book III: Raising Kanan, apparently followed the story of a young 50 Cent, and his coming of age–coming into the drug game. Power Book IV: Influence, takes on a more political pathway; furthermore, the story follows governor-to-be Rashad Tate, who is played by Lorenz Tate. Power Book V: Force, centers solely on fan-favorite Tommy Egan and his rapid change from NYC to the City of Angels, LA.
  • Also, Deadline reported, on Sunday, Jeffrey Hirsch, Starz executive 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.”
