Executive producer 50 Cent has decided that his Starz drama “Power” will in fact, not end after its upcoming sixth season.
50 wrote on Tuesday about the end of “Power” on his Instagram account: “I Changed my mind POWER is not going to be over after season 6. This s— is to good.”
The final season will premiere Sunday, August 25, and features Jackson — whose character Kanan died last season — making his directorial debut. Anthony Hemingway, who directed the series’ first two episodes back in 2014, will helm the series finale. But it won’t be the last from the “Power” universe for the pay cable network.
“Power” creator Courtney Kemp last year signed an overall deal with Starz’s parent company Lionsgate that would include spinoffs of the drama. Starz itself signed its own overall deal with 50 Cent that included a three-series commitment and would keep as an executive producer for any future “Power” series.
“Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the ‘Power’ universe,” Starz’s president of programming Carmi Zlotnik said at the time Starz announced the series’ end date. s: wrap
