Starz announced Power Book II: Ghost has been renewed for Season 3.
Power Book II: Ghost is the first of a slew of planned spinoffs of Power, the Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s Starz series that ran on Starz from 2017 to 2017.
Power Book II: Ghost picks up soon after the events of Power, as Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey, Jr.) grapples with a new world order. His father James “Ghost” St. Patrick is dead, and his mother, Tasha (Naturi Naughton), is facing charges for his murder, even though Tariq pulled the trigger. Season 2 sees Tariq continuing to run from his past. Forced into the choice to take the life of his professor, Jabari Reynolds (Justin McManus), he finds himself drifting further from the family he’s been fighting to protect.
Courtney Kemp, who recently signed an overall deal at Netflix, is stepping down as showrunner. Kemp will stay on as Executive Producer for the third season, while former Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney has been tapped as the new showrunner, and executive produces alongside Kemp via her production company End of Episode, 50 Cent through G-Unit Film.
“The continued success and cultural resonance of the Power universe is unprecedented, and fans are clearly still hungry for more Power Book II: Ghost,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz. “We’re excited for the third season of the star-studded series to get into production early next year just ahead of the debut ‘Power Book IV: Force,’ the fourth installment in the rapidly expanding franchise.”
Production is set to begin in early 2022.
