Power executive producer 50 Cent has revealed that the American drama-series spin-off shows are being "delayed" on Instagram.
50 Cent was not happy to announce that production on two of his Power spinoff series has been put on hold.
The American-Drama series spin-offs; Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan's production has been halted due to the rapidly spreading Coronavirus pandemic.

As one of the drama series creators and executive producers, 50 Cent was saddened by the decision and took to Instagram to express it.
On Sunday (Mar 16) 50 Cent posted a screenshot of the Deadline article which revealed production "pulled the plug" on the Power spin-off's due to Coronavirus.
Fif captioned the screenshot, writing "I had to do it we were the last production still working," he wrote. "F*ck."
While it hasn't officially been confirmed that Power were actually the very last ones to pull the plug on production, the series the Power are taking precaution of many other TV and Film companies.
The decision was put into action on Friday (Mar 13th) with no available recommencement date at this time.
