Starz is presently developing Four 'Power' Spin-Offs, each of which has its own favourite characters ...

Spin-offs are a long-time favourite among television, like in-house sequels in the film industry. Every major network does itbut announcing four new offshoots at once? Now that's a baller step.

Starz released a trailer promoting its several forthcoming projects relating to the hit crime drama, the first of which will begin airing this summer, and here's a breakdown of the #PowerNeverEnds universe.

What are the 'Power' spin-off programs, and when do they debut?

The plot is titled Power Book II: Ghost, and will debut in a few months, and it follows many familiar faces, including Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.), Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton), Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson), and Tameika Robinson (Quincy Tyler Bernstine).

Tariq is the one who murdered his father, Ghost, but his mother Tasha is currently behind bars for the murder, as fans realised in the OG drama's last moments (SPOILER ALERT!).

Tariq's new life as a freshman in college will be discussed in Power Book II, in which his desire to erase his father's legacy comes up against mounting pressure to save his family." Method Man and Mary J. Blige also play mystery roles in the show.

The rest of the three spin-offs are either secret or have yet to be set, though we do know that each program revolves around a person already established in the world of Power.

The first prequel in the series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, will explore the early years of Kanan Stark (50 Cent), aka the 90s. It's unclear in what capacity the rapper will appear on the series, but we don't believe he'll be on cinema at some point.

Power Book IV: Influence will focus on politician Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) and his impending need for control, while Power Book V: Force will focus on Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) and his return to L.A.

"In television history, only a select few shows have influenced four consecutive series extensions, which have been launched into active production and development at the same time," Starz's new president and CEO, Jeffrey Hirsch, stated in a statement.

"These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of Power's most controversy characters while incorporating a vanishing set of complex, distinct characters as well as the high-octane drama that puts Power in a class of its own."

The creator of 'Power' sprang from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the spotlight.

Courtney A. Kemp, a writer and producer, studied Kevin Feige's beloved superhero style when designing the four spin-offs. "We are creating it after Marvel, where different characters come in and out of other people's performances," she told Entertainment Weekly.

"So there's crossovers, and some of your favorite characters will come back, even if they don't get their own spin-off, they'll show up in places," Kemp noted. "We're trying to really do it for the fans, to give the most of what they want."
