The drama series Power ran for six seasons and ended in 2020. You can stream all six seasons on Starz and watch as drug kingpin James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), dubbed with the alias "Ghost," attempts to leave behind his life of crime and reinvent himself as a nightclub owner. Curtis Jackson, also known as 50 Cent, played a huge role in Power, both co-producing the show and portraying the character Kanan Stark.

After Power ended, Starz announced four other spin-offs: Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Force, and Power Book V: Influence. Power Book IV: Force and Power Book V: Influence have not yet been released, but you can watch Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan right now on Starz.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan is the prequel to the Power series and tells the origin story of Kanan Stark. Mekai Curtis takes on the task of portraying a younger version of 50 Cent's character, and just like Power, the prequel is loosely inspired by 50 Cent's life. Power Book II: Ghost is the sequel to Power, and follows James St. Patrick's son Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) as he attempts to balance his life as a college student with the troubles of his family life. All of season 1 is available for streaming, and season 2 is set to premiere exclusively on Starz Nov. 21.
