It was revealed in May that the hit Starz
series’ sixth season was going be its last. However, series creator and co-showrunner Courtney A. Kemp
had teased that new shows set in the “Power” universe were in the works and at the show’s Television Critics Association summer press tour she went a step further by announcing that the “first of several” prequel series will be titled “Power Book 2: Ghost,” and will feature Mary J. Blige
The series will “continue the journey” of some of the show’s “most controversial characters,” Kemp revealed. Blige then joined Kemp and the cast on stage in a surprise appearance.
“This is probably the most exciting thing that’s going to happen to me this year,” said Blige. “I’ve been a fan of ‘Power’ since the very beginning and I want to thank Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent
for starting this conversation with me.
