Courtney Kemp just got her hands on some more Power. After five seasons of taking over Sunday nights, the show creator just signed on to develop more series for Starz through her company, End of Episode, Deadline reports, including spin-offs of the popular criminal drama she developed alongside of 50 Cent. “I’m incredibly proud of the success we’ve had with Power, and I’m excited about expanding our banner and diversifying the types of stories we’re telling,” said Kemp in a statement.

The world of Power highlights the intersectionality of New York’s underbelly by venturing into Columbian drug cartels, the Italian mafia, Serbian street gangs, corrupt community organizers, and Queens street corners. Kemp could take spin-off projects in any or all of those directions.
