"Power" is coming to a close after Season 6.
Earlier today, 50 Cent took to his social channels to remind everybody that Power is the best thing on television. With all the hype surrounding Game Of Thrones, the star also told everybody that the upcoming season of the show would be better than GoT. Considering how different both programs are, it seemed a little odd to compare them. It's like comparing apples to oranges... However, now that we've learned that Power will be finishing off their longstanding drama this season, the juxtaposition makes a little bit more sense.
As reported by Variety, the series created by Courtney A. Kemp will be ending this year after its sixth season airs on Starz. The season is set to premiere on August 25 with 50 Cent making his directorial debut in the third episode. Kemp issued the following statement:
"We will follow some of your beloved ‘Power’ characters beyond the scope of the initial series. 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."

With the success of the show becoming evident over the last few years, a decision may have been made to create a few spin-offs to dive deeper into specific characters and their storylines. Teasing that further was the director of programming at Starz, Carmi Zlotnik, who said, "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. 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."
50 Cent adds that the show is far from over, noting that this is truly just the beginning for himself, Kemp and Power.
