The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is headed to your TV screens! As fans continue to countdown to the sixth season of the hit Starz series Power, they will be happy to know that there are a collection of spinoffs in the works…and the first one is set to star the one and only Mary J. Blige.
According to @THR, during the recent Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour Power creator Courtney Kemp announced that “Power Book II: Ghost” is currently in pre-production. The spinoff series will “continue the journey of some of Power‘s most controversial characters,” Kemp said, though it won’t necessarily focus on the character of James “Ghost” St. Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick,) despite the show’s title.
Mary made an appearance at the TCA panel, joined by the cast of Power, including executive producer 50 Cent. She revealed that she is a huge fan of the show, prompting the cast to let her know that they love MJB just as much.
Speaking about the upcoming series, Mary had this to say:
“I’ve known so many Tashas, I’ve known so many Ghosts. I’ve dated so many Ghosts. I’m a huge fan for life, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.”
While fans wait for the spinoff, season six of Power returns on August 25th on Starz.
Roommates, are your excited to see Mary J. Blige tackle the Power universe?
