“I need to know everything you know about Tariq St. Patrick,” declares Mary J. Blige’s drug queenpin Monet Stewart Tejada in the latest teaser for the forthcoming Power Book II: Ghost.
Having dropped earlier today on the Starz App, the Power spinoffs has Oscar-nominated Blige, Tariq himself Michael Rainey Jr, along with lot of familiar faces and some newbies.
Delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic but now debuting in September, the Courtney Kemp created show kicks off almost right after the events of the Power series finale.
Tariq (who should have had his ass beat in season 1, episode 2 of Power) is now balancing life in a prestigious university and getting street level in the family business of the drug trade to get his mother Tasha (Naturi Naughton) out of the clink. Remember Tasha took the fall for Tariq after he killed his father James/Ghost (Omari Hardwick) at the end of Power’s sixth and final season.
Ghost also stars Cliff ‘Method Man’ Smith as cocky defense lawyer Davis MacLean and Power alum Shane Johnson as federal prosecutor Cooper Saxe.
Besides Ghost, fellow Power spinoffs in the works for Starz include Power Book III: Raising Kanan and the Empire State politics of Power Book IV: Influence. There is also Power Book V: Force, which sees Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) in the City of Angels.
