Unfortunately, no. Season 7 of Power is not happening as it was canceled.
Conceived and produced by Courtney A. Kemp in partnership with Curtis Jackson AKA 50 Cent, Power is an American crime drama TV series that was released on the Starz network on June 7, 2014, and thus ended the series on February 9, 2020.
When the show debuted, it earned favorable responses and became the network’s most highly rated TV series and most-watched show on Cable TV. Before the release of the fifth season, the network commissioned the series for a sixth season run which was published on August 25, 2019.
Why Season 7 of Power Won’t be Released
Power series concluded after running for six seasons. The series was initially planned to run for seven seasons and pursue HBO’s critically lauded drama “The Sopranos.” However, Power came to an end after the sixth and final season.
In an interview with TV Fanatic in 2021, Curtis Jackson AKA 50 Cent was asked about the series completion to which he responded how he was “mirroring the success” of HBO’s “The Sopranos.”
Jackson said: “That’s what I could use to gauge how long you should go when it’s going great.”
He continued: “And then we actually went to the seven-season timeframe, but we did six and a half, and then technically Ghost started seven days after Power with all the results of what happened in Power. So, we technically are filming season nine of Power.”
Showrunner Courtney A. Kemp in chat with Ad Week also revealed that she “had run out of story.” She continued: “I didn’t want to continue to make a bad show. I got inspired by the Marvel Universe. As someone who watched the X-Men cartoon as a kid, I just love the idea of creating the universe and how they did it, which was—and obviously I copied this—taking specific characters and looking at them in new ways.”
The reason behind the Show’s Cancellation
The reason might be because Power was rejected by many networks.
Though Showrunner Kemp has been working on the notion for the show for a while, numerous networks dismissed ‘Power’ before it was eventually secured on Starz.
“When we pitched Power around town, a lot of places said no because a show with Black leads at that time was very much not what people wanted to buy,” Kemp explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “Now people have had the opportunity to see that they can make good money on those shows. I’ve said it before, but the color that matters in Hollywood is green. And I think people look to me to provide a certain demographic of viewers. I’m very committed to BIPOC, LGBTQIA, and women. Those are the areas where I’m committed to telling stories and amplifying voices — which isn’t to say that if you’re a straight white man, you can’t have a great story. But I’m pretty sure you’ll get that on [the air]. That door will open to you. Whereas if you are a queer woman of color, maybe people aren’t listening as much. They’re starting to listen more.”
So there you go Power has officially ended after the sixth season.
You can now watch all six seasons of Power on Amazon Prime Video.
