The Power Universe is expanding once again with a new prequel show.

Starz has announced Origins, an origin story, which will focus on the characters Ghost and Tommy.

"You asked, I answered. Young Ghost and Tommy coming your way. Power Origins now in development," Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson posted on Twitter/X today (March 13).

It isn't the first prequel in the Power Universe, though, as Power Book III: Raising Kanan wrapped up its third season last month and has a fourth on the way. Ghost is also the focus of sequel series Power Book II: Ghost, which also has a fourth season in the works.

Another sequel, Power Book IV: Force, has aired two seasons and has been renewed for a third.

"As we approach the 10-year anniversary of Power it is incredible to witness the enormous connection our fans have with the Power universe,” Starz' President of Programming, Kathryn Busby, said.

"We can't wait to see how Origins will further evolve this dynamic franchise while bringing fresh, gripping, and expansive storytelling to our audience."

Another attempt at a spin-off, Power Book V: Influence, was in development but cancelled before making it to screens.

The future of the Power Universe in the UK is all a bit up in the air at the moment, as streaming service Lionsgate+ (which premiered the various shows) has been wound down last month. The third season of Power Book III: Raising Kanan premiered last year in the US, and still isn't available to stream here as a result of that.

Given the popularity of the Power Universe, hopefully it won't be too long before it finds a new home here in the UK.
