Starz Announces New POWER Spinoffs


Starz is making Power into its own TV franchise with four spinoffs.

Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force are the new shows being developed.

Ghost was announced last year and will pick up where the original series leaves off. It will star Mary J. Blige, Method Man, and several members of the original Power cast. Raising Kanan is a prequel set in the ‘90s during the early years of Power character Kanan Stark. Influence will follow Rashad Tate in his pursuit of political power. Force centers on Tommy Egan after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good. Larenz Tate will reprise his role as Rashad Tate in Influence, while Joseph Sikora will return as Tommy for Force.

All four shows hail from Lionsgate Television. Original series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp executive produces through her company End of Episode, along with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television. Other executive producers are Mark Canton through Atmosphere Entertainment MM, End of Episode’s Chris Salek, and Danielle DeJesus, Shana Stein and Bart Wenrich.
