Power Origins Announced: Ghost and Tommy Returning to TV – Powercast Thoughts

It was just yesterday The Koalition reported Starz signed Power Book IV: Force’s Showrunner Gary Lennon to a new deal that will see him continue at the helm of the Starz series while also developing further extensions of the Power-verse. Now we know what those “further extensions of the Power-verse” entails.

Announced today, the premium cable outlet is developing a drama titled Origins, which would follow younger versions of Ghost and Tommy, characters played by Omari Hardwick and Joseph Sikora in Power (Sikora also stars in the spinoff Power Book IV: Force). The project would be the fourth spinoff of Power, which premiered in 2014, following Book II: Ghost, Book III: Raising Kanan and Force. Origins would replace Power Book V: Influence which was cancelled in 2022.

As seen in the video above, The Koalition staff came together to discuss this news, and theorize on other possible spin-offs in the Power-Verse. According to Deadline reported in 2022 plans for a London-based Power spinoff, but Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming at Starz, wouldn’t comment on. “I am not at liberty to answer anything in that vein except to say what we love about Power is the potential to spinoff and to spinoff successfully which we have done,” she said. “Which in theory, we would love to do again. I love that you’re hearing it.”

“As we approach the 10-year anniversary of Power it is incredible to witness the enormous connection our fans have with the Power universe,” said Kathryn Busby, president of programming at Starz. “We can’t wait to see how Origins will further evolve this dynamic franchise while bringing fresh, gripping, and expansive storytelling to our audience.”

Raising Kanan creator and showrunner Sascha Penn will executive produce, along with Power creator Courtney A. Kemp (via her End of Episode company), Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (via G-Unit Film and Television) and Mark Canton. Lionsgate Television produces the Power shows.

The flagship Power series ran for six seasons on Starz, and the three spinoffs are all ongoing. Ghost’s fourth season is set to premiere later this year, Raising Kanan is filming its fourth season, and Force recently began production on its third.
