Power begets Power?
We already know Power Season 6 wont be the end of the story, with spinoff series, Power Book II: Ghost scheduled to land in 2020, but even more spinoffs could follow.
Speaking to Decider, Starz chief Jeffrey Hirsch said he’s hoping to sanction five more Power spinoffs, including a prequel series, which would run every three months:
“We’ve got great characters that could stand alone in their own shows, and we’ve got some history that I think viewers would like to understand. I’d like to have a show every quarter running 10 episodes. We have plans for the Power universe to be four or five different stories.”
“There’s a group of people who click in to watch Power and click out when it’s over. When we send them an email about the next season, they come back. It’s like college kids in the cable business that come in September and leave in May. If we had another Power series waiting when Power ends, we wouldn’t see that churn.”
Are you looking forward to Power Book II: Ghost? Would you watch more Power spinoffs?
