The “Power” team is hyped about bringing some serious star power to the franchise. This weekend, various cast members went to social media to hype up R&B icon Mary J. Blige joining the “Power Book II: Ghost” spin-off series.
Over the past few hours, everyone from executive producer 50 Cent to show creator Courtney Kemp have weighed-in on Blige’s addition.
On Friday, Kemp broke the massive spin-off news to media outlets and teased details about what’s to come.
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.” (Variety)
Back in May, everyone in “Power” from on-screen star Omari “Ghost” Hardwick to Naturi Naughton weighed-in on the series wrapping up with season six.
Show executive producer 50 Cent went to Instagram the same week to reveal he had plans for four spin-off seasons following the upcoming “Power” season six run.
