How to watch POWER SHOW in order

When Starz's Power launched in 2014, it revolutionized the game. The TV drama, starring Omari Hardwick as James "Ghost" St. Patrick, portrayed a New York City businessman with a second operation as a drug dealer. It aired for six seasons until 2020, when it was cancelled. However, the universe has grown to include a number of Power spinoffs as well as other projects. Learn how to watch the Power shows in order and where to view them. 

What are the spinoffs of 'Power'? 

As Power came to a close, it was revealed that the tale would be expanded into a series of spinoffs. The following are the details: Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Force, and Power Book V: Influence are the first five books in the Power Series. 

Tariq St. Patrick, James' son, is the focus of Ghost. Tariq is a college student at the elite Stansfield University, where he's in an accelerated degree program, played by Michael Rainey Jr. But, in order to support his lifestyle, he has begun to distribute narcotics, a path that, as viewers are aware, generally leads to either jail or death. 

Raising Kanan is a prequel series focusing on Kanan Stark, 50 Cent's Power character. Mekai Curtis plays the younger Kanan in this show, who is only 15 years old when he gets embroiled in major criminal behavior. He rises to become one of the city's most prominent characters alongside his drug kingpin mother Raquel Thomas (Patina Miller) and her two brothers Lou-Lou (Malcolm Mays) and Marvin (London Brown). 

After the events of the original series, Force follows Ghost's best buddy and business partner Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora). He says goodbye to New York for good in favor of Chicago, where he's starting his own company. Tommy is scary and street smart, and he has all he needs to succeed, but as the new guy in town, he struggles. 

Finally, there's Influence, a Rashad Tate offshoot. Because it is still under pre-production, little is known about it. However, according to Courtney Kemp, creator and showrunner of Influence, it will follow the character as he attempts to gain greater political power. 

How to watch 'Power' programs in the correct order

If you're going to watch the Power programs, start with Power and then move on to Ghost and Raising Kanan's initial seasons. Do Ghost Season 2 and Force Season 1 after that. (At the time of publication, Force Season 1 was the most recent Starz show to premiere.) 

Given that Raising Kanan is a prequel, you could technically watch it at any time. However, we believe that seeing the original series first enhances the viewing experience because it provides more context for some of the events on Raising Kanan. 

Similarly, while Ghost and Force take place around the same time, there are events in Ghost that make sense later in Force, and vice versa. We recommend watching them in the order listed above to prevent missing anything. 

Prepare for the second season of Raising Kanan, which will air on Starz on August 14th. Although the network hasn't specified, it's widely assumed that if Influence doesn't air, it'll be Ghost Season 3, then Force Season 2, and finally back to Raising Kanan. As you continue to watch the shows, keep that pattern in mind. 

Where can I watch the shows? 

All you need now is a subscription to Starz. Unfortunately, there are no free trials available for the program, although membership options start at $8.99 per month. Some of the shows are also available on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, but you'll have to look them up individually to see where else you can watch them. 

It's unclear how long each spinoff will air, but based on what we've heard, the idea is for them to last five or six seasons, exactly like the original. So, once you've caught up on everything, be ready for a whole lot more awesomeness.
