50 Cent Says 'Power' Will Not End After Season 6: "I Changed My Mind"

Fans were shook after Starz announced that its popular series, Power, would end after its sixth season.  Nearly two months after the initial announcement, however, 50 Cent suggested the hit series is far from over. In fact, in a post on Instagram on Tuesday (June 25), Fif said more seasons are on the way.

"I Changed my mind. POWER is not going to be over after season 6," 50 captioned a post of himself. "This sh*t is too good."

Although 50 as acted as an executive producer on the series, his statement likely comes as a shock to the cast as well as its co-creator, Courtney A. Kemp.  Carmi Zlotnik, Starz's president of programming, also released a statement in May 2019, confirming the show's end.

"Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the 'Power' story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin," Zlotnik said in a statement. "Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the 'Power' universe."

All things considered, this is probably just another one of 50 Cent's trolling stunts. Nonetheless, it doesn't hurt to dream.

Cynthia Erivo Follows The North Star To Freedom In The Trailer For 'Harriet'

Former slave turned abolitionist and hero, Harriet Tubman is getting her cinematic just do in the forthcoming Focus Features film appropriately titled Harriet.

Cynthia Ervio weathered a few storms when it was announced she was cast to play Tubman. The 32-year-old Tony award-winning actress is from the United Kingdom and some naysayers felt that a black American actress should've been cast in the role.

The backlash surrounding Ervio fell to the waist side and has since been silenced after the trailer for Harriet was released Tuesday (July 23).

Alongside Janelle Monae and Leslie Odom Jr, the two-minute clip opens with Ervio running just before sunset, through the night and using the north star as her guide.

"I don't know if you know how extraordinary this is, but you have made it 100 miles to freedom all by yourself."

Once she gets north, she changes her name and decides to go back to save more. "If I'm free my family should be too," Harriet says. "I made up my mind. I'm going back."

Determined and strong-willed, Harriet Tubman journeys back to save as many men and women as she can often coming close to danger and death. "I will give every last drop of blood in my veins until this monster called slavery is dead."

Watch the trailer for Harriet below.
