Mary J. Blige‘s acting career is about to go to the next level, as it was just announced that the iconic singer has landed a major role in one of the previously announced ‘Power‘ spin off’s coming to Starz.

As you may recall, earlier this year 50 Cent and the cast of ‘Power’ announced that it’s upcoming sixth season would be it’s final one–but gave fans a glimmer of hope by revealing that there were a few spin off’s coming from the series.

Well on Friday (July 26) the first one was officially announced and it will star MJB.

The first of what showrunner Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson promise will be many spin-offs has already been greenlit, and it’s starring none other than Mary J. Blige.

“We have alluded previously to various spin-offs, prequels, and other expansions of the Power universe,” Kemp said at the 2019 Television Critics Association summer press tour on Friday in Los Angeles. “Today we are pleased to announce that we are in pre-production on the first of what we know will be a collection of series inspired by the dynamic world of Power. Power Book II: Ghost will continue the journey of some of Power’s most controversial characters.”

Power Book II: Ghost (no, not about that Ghost) will feature Oscar-nominated and Grammy-winning Blige at the center of the series, but details on who she will be playing are being kept under wraps for now. Blige joined the cast and showrunners of Power onstage during the panel, where all the stars proceeded to play musical chairs for their chance to sit next to Blige and hold her hand or give her a hug in a sweet and hilarious moment. And Jackson geeked out so hard at getting Blige for the spin-off that he literally got up off his chair to pace around onstage.

It was also announced that Power‘s sixth and final season will air in two parts. Part 1 will be 10 episodes, premiering Sunday, Aug. 25; part 2 will be the final five episodes, debuting in January.

Are you here for the next generation of ‘Power’?
