'Power' to End After Season 6; Spinoffs Are in the Works
"Power" is officially ending, but executive producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson says not to trip.
The rapper-slash-actor announced via Instagram Thursday that the show's upcoming sixth season will be its last. He didn't just have bad news for fans, though. Jackson also shared that there are multiple spinoff series in the works.
"Augs25 starts Season 6 is the final season of POWER," he wrote. "I have 4 spin off shows coming so don't trip."
Starz Programming President Carmi Zlotnik expanded on the news, saying in a statement that Season 6 will close "what we know is just the first chapter of the 'Power' story." He added that Jackson and showrunner Courtney Kemp "have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters" and they're going to "continue to explore and expand the 'Power' universe." So far, neither Zlotnik nor Jackson has revealed any directions the spinoffs might take, but at least one is far enough along that writers have been hired, per Deadline's intel.
For now, we have one more season of the show, and it will be longer than usual, with 15 episodes. Season 6's stars include Omari Hardwick, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora, Rotimi, Alani “La La” Anthony, Jerry Ferrara, Shane Johnson, Michael Rainey Jr., Larenz Tate, Evan Handler, Michael J. Ferguson, Monique Gabriela Curnen, and Mike Dopud.
"Power" Season 6 premieres Aug. 25 on Starz.
