Courtney Kemp, the creator of hit show Power, confirmed not one, not two, not three, but FOUR spinoffs currently under development.
“There’s so many of them. I’m busy working on them right now. We’re shooting one of them right now,” Kemp confessed to AfterBuzz TV’s Power After Show. “There’s Power Book 2, Power Book 3, Power Book 4, Power Book 5.”
Previously, only two spinoffs were known.
While we don’t know much about the spinoffs, it’s been announced that Power Book 2: Ghost will feature Mary J. Blige.
“This is probably the most exciting thing that’s going to happen to me this year,” Blige said in an interview with Variety. “I’ve been a fan of ‘Power’ since the very beginning and I want to thank Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent for starting this conversation with me.”
We’ve also learned that one of the spinoffs will be more like a prequel and another a sequel to the main show. The other two are yet a mystery.
However, in a bit of a vague comment, Kemp cautioned that simply because a character shows up in another “book” doesn’t mean they’re going to survive the Power finale.
“I’m not telling you anything cause I’m not gonna say which characters there are,” Kemp said. “because then you would think that they survive, and at least one of them is about someone who doesn’t.”
Power premiered on Starz and is currently in its sixth season. Even now after such a long run, the show is Starz most-watched (about ten million viewers per episode) and highest rated.
After an explosive cliffhanger, Power has paused for the season and will return with its final five episodes on Sunday, January 5th at 8 p.m. EST.
Though, from the sounds of it, the finale in January is just the beginning of what will turn into an entire universe of Power. We’ll have to see what 2020 brings for our favorite powerful cast of characters.
