50 Cent confirms “Power” will end after the next season
The music and entertainment mogul is promising a spinoff.
While countless fans across the nation remain glued to the television in anticipation of the last remaining episodes of “Game of Thrones,” 50 Cent is proudly taking advantage of the trending fantasy series to remind others what else they can look forward to this summer.
After noting that “Game of Thrones” “ain’t got S–T ON ME,” the music and entertainment mogul teased the upcoming season of his show, “Power.”
The series, which airs exclusively on Starz, is set to return on Aug. 25. However, as revealed on Thursday (May 9), “Power” will not be renewed for a seventh season.
The rapper, who stars in and executive produces the show, made the announcement on Instagram. He also promised that he has “4 spin off shows coming so don’t trip.”
In addition to the series coming to a close, the next season will also feature 50’s directorial debut, as well as the return of Emmy Award-winning director Anthony Hemingway, who directed the show’s first two episodes back in 2014.
“The last 5 seasons of ‘Power’ have been an incredible ride for me and all of our supportive fans,” Fif shared in a statement on Thursday. “We are far from over and I am excited to bring you more from the ‘Power’ brand. I am proud that I was able to put a lasting stamp on this chapter with my directorial debut in an episode that features one of the wildest scenes ever on the show.”
La La Anthony, who also stars in the show as character Lakeisha Grant, further 50’s sentiments, teasing that the next season is “not the end of the story” on Instagram.
While the spinoffs have not yet been formally announced, the president of programming for Starz, Carmi Zlotnik, confirmed that the network will continue working to expand the “Power” franchise.
“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the ‘Power’ story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin,” Zlotnik said in a statement. “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.”
