Power may be getting ready to air its final five episodes in January, but fans of the series will see more from the Power universe once it ends. There are several spinoff series in the works for after the series airs its final episode. In fact, the first series is in production now. Power Book II: Ghost stars Mary J. Blige.
“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.”
If Hirsch has his way, there will be a series from the Power universe airing all year round, and that will keep people watching his network. Apparently, people have subscribed to Starz just to watch Power, and that has been noticed by the network.
Hirsch said the following:
“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.”
According to ratings, Power averages 1.236 million viewers per episode. However, Hirsch revealed that each episode of the series is watched by 11 million viewers.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Power? Would you tune in to watch the new spinoffs from the series once they are released?
