In addition to Mary J. Blige and Method Man and Shane Johnson also star in “Power Book II: Ghost,” while Larenz Tate leads “Power Book IV: Influence” and Joseph Sikora, who played Tommy Egan on the “Power” series, is leading the L.A.-based “Power Book V: Force.”
Omar Epps will also feature in the prequel “Raising Kanan.” According to Deadline, the actor “comes to the series based on the backstory of the now deceased character played by Curtis “50 Cent’ Jackson,” the outlet writes.
Raising Kanan is a prequel story that is set in the 1990s and follows the life of 50 Cent’s character, Kanan Stark. Influence will follow Rashad Tate’s (Larenz Tate) quest to be as powerful as possible. As for Force, the series will focus on Tommy Egan’s struggle to cut ties with his street life and move away from New York City. All of these series will be produced by creator Courtney A. Kemp’s End of Episode company.
“In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time,” Starz’s president and CEO, Jeffrey Hirsch, said when talking about the spinoff series. “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.”
50 Cent will serve as executive producer of the spinoffs.
“Power Book II: Ghost” will air on Starz in the US in September. Scroll up and watch the teaser trailer via the YouTube clip above.
