Fans of Starz series Power were desperate to find out out how Ghost’s (played by Omari Hardwick) story would come to an end. It was not known if Ghost would survive his shooting or be killed in a tragic twist. However, as fans were so keen to find out how it will all end, the series was plagued by leaks and spoilers online.

As a result, the final season pulled in much fewer viewers on average than another series since it first aired.
Power’s first season aired in 2014 and pulled in an average of 650,000 viewers per episode.
Once word spread of the series created by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, figures grew.
The third season of the series brought in an incredible 1.94 million viewers on average per episode.

However, this started to fall when season five aired and Angela Valdes (Lela Loren) was shot and killed by Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora).
This continued into the final season with some of the final episode pulling in the lowest viewing figures.
Just 1.22 million tuned in on average per episode for the last series, which ended with Ghost’s death.
This isn’t too surprising as due to leaks, many fans knew the ending before it was broadcast.
Fans were also disappointed by the ending, which revealed Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) and his mother Tasha St Patrick (Naturi Naughton) had plotted to bring down Ghost.
The low ratings don’t bode well for the series as it was announced soon after the season six finale that there would be five spin-off series.
The first, Power Book II: Ghost, would focus on Tariq and his life after his father’s death.
Other spin-offs would focus on Kanan Stark, Tommy Egan and Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate).

Unfortunately, the series has been hit with another setback as Power Book II has been delayed due to coronavirus.
Showrunner Courtney Kemp addressed the shutdown of production on Instagram, writing: “Dear #powertv fans, we have ceased production for at least a week in order to protect our cast and crew.
“We will keep you posted as circumstances change. Both @ghoststarz and #powerbook3raisingkanan are down so we can assess the situation and keep people safe and healthy.
“If you have any questions about the shut down ask them in comments below and I’ll do my best to answer.”

It came before it was reported by Deadline a member of the crew had tested positive for Covid-19.
Deadline reported: “Currently in a NYC hospital receiving care, the individual went into self-quarantine on March 13.”
Accounting to a “well-placed source”, the crew member were reportedly stable.
It’s now uncertain when the series will return to screens and if it will have fans on the edge of their seats once more.
Power seasons 1-6 are available to stream on Netflix now.
