Power has been a heavy topic of conversation since the premiere of Season 6 on August 25. There was the “Big Rich Town” blowback, Trey Songz threatening to “slap” someone for criticizing his contributions to the song’s update and, of course, 50 Cent telling everyone to “chill out” as a result.
But the STARZ series’ co-creator wants everyone to remember Power doesn’t really end with Season 6. There’s a whole new spin-off called Power Book II: Ghost, which picks up shortly after the Season 6 finale.
“POWER BOOK II starts 48 hours after the finale, so stop saying this is the last season,” he wrote via Instagram on Friday (August 30). “THE PARTY IS NOT OVER.”
In July, Fiddy announced R&B powerhouse Mary J. Blige would take part in Power Book II: Ghost .
“I had to bring something big to POWER,” 50 captioned a photo of himself with Blige. “I went and got the best @therealmaryjblige to star in ‘POWER book ll’ the show must go on.”
Power executive producers Courtney Kemp and Fiddy explained the premise of the newly-hatched show during the TCA mega-panel on July 26.
“Today we are pleased to announce that we are in pre-production on the first of what we know will be a collection of series inspired by the dynamic world of Power,” Kemp said. “Power Book II: Ghost will continue the journey of some of Power’s most controversial characters.”
The Hip Hop mogul revealed Season 6 wouldn’t be the last fans see of Power in June.
“Changed my mind,” he wrote. “POWER is not going to be over after season 6. This shit is to good.”
