With the launch of the expanded "Power" Universe, all of the new "Power" series will be available exclusively across Starz' global footprint on its international platform STARZPLAY, giving subscribers worldwide access to episodes day and date with the U.S. for the first time.

"In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time," said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of Starz. "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."

In addition to the previously announced "POWER BOOK II: GHOST," which will pick up where the original series leaves off, starring world-renowned recording artist and Oscar(R) nominee Mary J. Blige, Method Man and several members of the original "Power" cast, a prequel and two spinoff sequels have been greenlit. All four series will be produced by Lionsgate Television.

"POWER BOOK III: RAISING KANAN" - the prequel story that takes viewers back to the '90s and the early years of iconic "Power" character Kanan Stark.

"POWER BOOK IV: INFLUENCE" which follows Rashad Tate (played by Larenz Tate) in his ruthless pursuit of political power.

"POWER BOOK V: FORCE" in which fans will ride along with Tommy Egan (played by Joseph Sikora) after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good.

The "Power" series are executive produced by series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp through her company End of Episode, and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television.
