50 Cent took to Instagram on Monday to blast the Starz network for how it’s treating ‘Power.’
Not only does 50 star in the series, but he’s also the show’s executive producer. As it stands now, 50 has threatened to leave the show — which is one of Starz’s highest-rated.

Sunday’s episode, which saw the deaths of two major characters played by Anika Noni Rose and J.R. Ramirez, was originally planned to be a two-parter to include some additional storylines. However, according to showrunner Courtney Kemp, Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode order, resulting in just one packed episode. Kemp said that as a result, the episode lost some story elements.
“Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode,” Kemp told Entertainment Weekly. “I asked them for 12 episodes for season 4 and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode.”
