The intimate gathering, hosted by Daytime Emmy Award-winner Tamron Hall, was attended by series stars three-time NAACP Image Award winner Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Michael Rainey Jr., Larenz Tate, Lovell Adams-Gray, Gianni Paolo, LaToya Tonodeo, Alix Lapri, Berto Colon, Caroline Chikezie, Paton Ashbrook and Shane Johnson. Also present were showrunner Brett Mahoney, executive producer Mark Canton, producer Dorothy Canton and President of Original Programming at STARZ, Kathryn Busby.
Busby’s introduction teased the Power Book II: Ghost season 3, “You will see that this year the show is juicier, bloodier and sexier than ever before and that we’ve got the same betrayals, alliances and ‘Power’ dynamics you’ve come to love and respect.” In praising this next chapter, Hall said, “Season three is always a huge accomplishment, but when you become a cultural phenomenon, that is a next level that few shows can claim, but this show, this cast can honestly say that you are transformative, important, relevant, game changing.” Hall continued, “I think we should toast to this phenomenal cast who have brought something to TV with STARZ that people truly can’t stop talking about.”
This season is filled with new twists and turns as Tariq, Brayden, Monet, and the Tejadas have to level up or get taken down. Fresh off the murder of Zeke, everyone is grieving, but they won’t get much time as a new set of problems and questions arise.
The festivities began with specialty cocktails and passed appetizers, followed by a decadent sit-down dinner where guests connected over lively and engaging discussions about the highly anticipated new season. Kathryn Busby began the exceptional evening by welcoming attendees, followed by a toast from Tamron Hall.
