'Power' announces three spinoff series
Fans of the hugely popular crime drama Power will be delighted to hear that the show is getting three additional spin-offs, according to Digital Spy.
Fresh on the heels of the announcement of the first Power spinoff, titled Power Book II: Ghost, which will follow on from the main series - there will be three more series for fans to look forward to.
Take a look at the trailer for the very first season of Power:
Power Book III: Raising Kanan will be a prequel set in the '90s and will center around the early years of Kanan Stark, the character first played by executive producer Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent).
Next up is Power Book IV: Influence, a spin-off that will follow Larenz Tate's character, Rashad Tate, and his ruthless pursuit of power and influence.
And last but not least, Power Book V: Force will focus on Ghost's business partner Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) who, according to Digital Spy, "cuts ties and puts New York in his rear-view mirror for good".
Power showrunner Courtney Kemp, who is set to executive produce Power Book II: Ghost, has stated her intentions of ensuring female representation is improved upon in the first two spin-offs.
"[The first two spin-offs] have really strong female characters in a way that I am trying to push even further than what we had in the original Power," Kemp explained to Entertainment Weekly.
"Mary [J. Blige]'s character is like super strong and interesting, and the same is true of the lead characters in the next spin-off after that," she continued. "I think women, especially women of color, but all women, are going to find really great inspiration while watching as we move forward."
The main series had its series finale this past Sunday. According to the Sun, the first of the four spinoffs will be released sometime this summer.
