It has just been announced that “Power” will end after the upcoming sixth season, which was confirmed by Starz. The new season will also start on August 25.
In a newly released statement, the network’s President of Programming Carmi Zlotnik said some of the characters will live on in the “Power” spinoffs, mentioned by show creator Courtney Kemp awhile back. But he didn’t mention which characters those would be.
“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the Powerstory. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin,” said Zlotnik. “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.”
“We will follow some of your beloved ‘Power’ characters beyond the scope of the initial series,” added Kemp. “But we will play with your expectations of which characters, where, and the master timeline of it all, creating a ‘Power’ universe as unpredictable as the original.”
50 also shared news of the show ending and told people not to panic.
“Augs25 starts Season 6 is the final season of POWER,” he wrote. “I have 4 spin off shows coming so don’t trip. Starz.”
But people are tripping, and some said they’re shocked, while others said they feel abandoned.
“Uh….I think you misspelled June. WTF you mean August? 🤬”
“I don’t like this news 😩🤦🏽♀️🤔😢 you can’t just cut us off like that @50cent,” one of his fans wrote under his post.
“I have been so disappointed with tv this week, and was looking forward to July,” another person commented. “You just killed my vibe making me wait longer and it’s the final season… omg Ghost and Tommy better be the connect and nobody better die!!”
Others, meanwhile, kept their disappointment for the show ending short and to the point.
“U just irritated the f–k outta me,” someone wrote.
The sixth season of “Power” will have 15 episodes, with 50 directing episode 6.3.
“The last 5 seasons of ‘Power’ have been an incredible ride for me and all of our supportive fans,” said Fif in a statement. “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.”
