Giving More ‘Power’ to People!: Prequel Series, Two More Spinoffs Set at Starz

*”Power,” as we know it on Starz, is now history, but that doesn’t mean the end of super popular cable series. The network has announced another three “Power” related shows.

As we reported earlier, “Power Book II: Ghost” had already been commissioned. Now it’s being joined by three other spinoffs, including “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Influence,” and “Power Book V: Force.”

Here’s more via Variety:

“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.”

“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.

“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.”

In related news, Starz also announced that all of the “Power” series will be available on its international platform STARZPLAY, which will give subscribers worldwide access day and date with those in the U.S.
