The series finale of Power airs on Sunday, Feb. 9 but the universe is only getting bigger.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, there will be more spinoff series added to what's being called the "Power Universe." In July 2019, it was announced that Power Book II: Ghost will hit Starz sometime soon. The show will co-star Mary J. Blige and follow the chain of events that happens 48 hours after the series finale of Power. Now it's been announced that three additional spinoffs are in production: Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence, and Power Book V: Force.

"In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time," Starz's president and CEO, Jeffrey Hirsch, said when talking about the spinoff series. "These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of Power's most controversial characters while featuring a growing ensemble of complex, distinct characters along with the high-octane drama that set Power in a class of its own."
