The Power universe is adding a new entry.

On Wednesday, March 13, Starz announced plans to move forward with a prequel series titled Origins, focusing on the origin story of popular franchise characters James “Ghost” St. Patrick and Tommy Egan.

Currently in development, the new series is the fourth spinoff of crime drama, Power, after Power Book II: Ghost; Power Book III: Raising Kanan; and Power Book IV: Force.

“As we approach the 10-year anniversary of Power it is incredible to witness the enormous connection our fans have with the Power universe,” Kathryn Busby, president of programming for Starz, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see how Origins will further evolve this dynamic franchise while bringing fresh, gripping, and expansive storytelling to our audience.”
