Sunday night’s episode of Power had everyone talking, as usual — but this time around, the conversations surrounding the episode were a little less approving than the weeks prior.
Even 50 Cent, an executive producer on the show, spoke out about the episode and slammed Starz not giving them an extended episode, which caused the episode to lose some story elements. The rapper said he feels “a little different about Power” and threatened to leave the show, which is one of the network’s highest-rated series and is currently in its fourth season.
Showrunner and director Courtney Kemp wasn’t happy either and spoke out to Entertainment Weekly, “Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode. I asked them for 12 episodes for season four and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode.”
Fans of the show even took to social media to rant about episode six of the hit show:
This isn’t 50’s first time (and most likely won’t be his last) threatening to leave his own show. Just last year, Fif dragged the Hollywood Foreign Press for not nominating Power for an Emmy Award.
Do you think 50 would actually leave one of the highest rated shows on television? Catch Power every Sunday on Starz.
