50 Cent Ends Feud With Starz, Confirms 5th Season Of 'Power' and Inks New Deal With Network

50 Cent has announced that not only will "Power" return for Season 5, but the actor also revealed he has three new shows in the works with the Starz network. 

Fiddy, who stars and serves as an executive producer in "Power," revealed the shows are tentatively named "BMF," "Tomorrow Today" and "I Got Away."

50 Cent did not give details on the upcoming shows air date or his possible roles, but he did state that "Power" may be airing sooner than expected. 

Fiddy suggested that the new deal with Starz means some big money. He shared a post on Instagram with the caption, "LOL yo this [expletive] is unbelievable, I have 3 new shows coming on STARZ. BMF, Tomorrow Today, and I GOT AWAY. TICK, TICK πŸ’£BOOM. #50centralbet."

The rapper also shared a picture with the caption, "I just got off the phone with Chris Albrecht, head of Starz. New deal, more Power coming your way, next season there will be less of a wait. Thanks for supporting me. I can't believe how much money they just gave me. That [expletive] [expletive] with my nerves, my hand is shaking. LOL TURN THAT [expletive] BACK ON NOW."

The new lucrative deal with Starz is rather surprising after he butted heads with the network previously.

If I can't do it, it can't be done. Now I say I got a idea and it's green lit 🚦you gotta love it. #50centralbet

In July, 50 Cent vented on social media about his frustrations with the network and the show. At that time, he threatened to pull "Power" from "Starz" after an episode that was written to be a two-parter was whittled down into one. Fiddy took to Instagram to blast Starz and threaten to leave the show.

He posted a photo collage of his character with a message to the network. Fiddy wrote, "I woke up feeling a little different about POWER this morning. If the biggest show on your network doesn't mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ? I'm taking my talents to south beach [expletive] this."

In addition, Fiddy leaked several episodes of the fourth season of "Power" online. The network believed they had an internal leak, only to find out 50 was behind the leak.

50 decided to come clean after the ratings of the show jumped up 10 percent. 

Fiddy took to Instagram to write, "POWER ratings up another 10 percent for episode 408. They glad I leaked the [expletive] now. #SavageLife. Now watch what I do on BET.”

Fiddy is going to be quite busy. The rapper-turned-actor will also be hosting a late night variety show on BET called "50 Central", which premieres on September 27th.
