50 Cent has confirmed that he is working on a prequel to popular crime drama Power.

“Heyyyyyyy there #powertv fans..... spinoffs coming atcha... and other series I’m really excited to bring to you.... And no I’m not telling you who survives Season 6!” she wrote on Instagram.

According to Deadline, Courtney Kemp has signed a huge “one-of-a-kind” deal with Lionsgate that will see the Power franchise expand.

The deal reportedly accounts for more than three years, so fans can expect lots more Power on their TV screens in coming years.

Meanwhile, 50 Cent is also in the news after wading his way into Nicki Minaj’s feud with fashion brand Steve Madden.

The New York rapper appears to have sided with Minaj in the feud, which emerged from her earlier disagreement with Cardi B.
