'Power Book II: Ghost' To End With Season 4

Fans of the Power franchise have lost Ghost once more, but this time it is the entire series.

Starz has canceled Power Book II: Ghost, with the fourth season being the final. It will be divided into two halves, with premieres on June 7 and September 6. Watch the teaser video above.

Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch announced the change this week, stating that he intends to reduce content expenses by generating more new shows rather than supporting series as they get more expensive.

Using the Power franchise as an example, he stated: "You look at the [Power] map and say, 'OK, if I take one of those characters out and spin one of them out, 

I can bring that on to replace the Power program at half the cost.' Now I'm putting a lot of money towards the bottom line. 

And I'm not losing money in terms of acquisition costs or subscriber viewership because we know what those demos want.

We know how to arrange those. So that's really the foundation of getting to that 20% [profit] — starting anew with new content to fuel the business.

Everything is unfolding just as he predicted. On Wednesday, Starz announced plans for a new prequel series starring everyone's favorite Power couple, Ghost and Tommy.
