“I’ve known so many Tashas, I’ve known so many Ghosts. I’ve dated so many Ghosts,” Blige said Friday (July 26.) “I’m a huge fan for life, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.”
Kemp added that the spin-off will not just focus on Ghost, played by Omari Hardwick, despite the show’s title. Kemp said the show will “continue the journey of some of Power‘s most controversial characters,” not revealing who else’s story we can expect to be told.

The R&B vet is currently starring on Netflix’s Umbrella Academy, which has been renewed for a second season, and VH1’s third season of Scream. The Grammy award winner also signed a television deal with Lionsgate where she will create content and produce series through her new production company, Blue Butterfly Productions.
“They are incredible collaborators and have been natural partners from when we first started talking,” the New York native said in a statement. “I can’t wait to bring all of our projects to life.”
