Why Power Book V Was Canceled, Explained
POSTED BY WLAS February 19th, 2024 0 COMMENTS

Power Book V: Influence was canceled by Starz due to the network’s shift towards producing more female-driven content, despite the popularity of the Power franchise.

The cancellation may also be attributed to the conclusion of Rashad Tate’s character arc in Power Book II: Ghost, making Power Book V unnecessary.

Fans are left wondering about the future of the Power franchise, with rumors of a potential London-set spin-off, although no official announcements have been made.

In August 2022, fans of the popular Starz crime drama Power were shocked to learn that the network had suddenly canceled Power Book V: Influence. The announcement was made by the newly appointed president of original programming, Kathryn Busby, who informed Variety that the fifth Power series will not be moving forward. At the time, Busby suggested the network was focusing on more female-driven content, leaving Power Book V: Influence with little room on the Starz production slate despite the popularity and critical acclaim of the franchise.

By late 2023, it was suggested that Power Book V: Influence was possibly canceled due to a prominent plotline involving Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) featured in Power Book II: Ghost. Depicted throughout the Power franchise, Rashad Tate is a corrupt and influential politician with designs on becoming the powerful governor of New York City. Tate’s dramatic arc was expected to continue in Power Book V: Influence, but now that the fourth spin-off has been canceled, rumors of a new London-set Power spin-off have come about. With all the confusion swirling around, it’s time to clear up the facts and discover why Power Book V: Influence has been canceled by Starz and what it means for the future of the franchise.
