Starz will continue the next chapter of Power in Power Book II: Ghost.
The spinoff will see Michael Rainey Jr. return as Tariq and Naturi Naughton as Tasha, Shane Johnson returning as Cooper Saxe and welcoming Mary J. Blige, Gani Paolo, Daniel Bellomy, Paige Hurd, Cliff “Method Man” Smith and Melanie Liburd.
The series picks up shortly after the original series as Tariq St. Patrick finds himself on his own for the first time in his life as his father is dead and his mother, Tasha, is facing charges for the murder Tariq committed, all while attending an Ivy League to earn his inheritance. Tariq finds himself splitting his time between school and hustling to pay for his mother’s defense attorney Davis McLean, turning to the drug game and becoming intertwined with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada.
Courtney A. Kemp takes the helm as showrunner, creator, and executive producer alongside Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Mark Canton.
Power Book II: Ghost will premiere on Starz in September 2020.
