Earlier this morning, STARZ sent out a press release announcing the renewal of Power Book III: Raising Kanan for a fourth season. Showrunner and Executive Producer Sascha Penn is set to return and production starts later this week in New York City. Below is the official statement courtesy of STARZ president of Original Programming Kathryn Busby:
“We’re thrilled to continue Kanan Stark’s story, and for fans to see how the events of his formative adolescent years continue to mold him into the cold-hearted villain they were first introduced to in ‘Power.’ We are quite sure that after viewers see the battle lines being drawn between Raq and Kanan on this epic upcoming third season that they will demand more”.
Set in the early 1990’s, the third series in the “Power” Universe tells the origin story of fan favorite character, “Kanan Stark,” and his entry into the criminal world through his mother, who ruthlessly runs the family’s drug empire. It stars MeKai Curtis in the titular role of “Kanan,” Tony® Award winner Patina Miller as his mother, Raquel “Raq” Thomas, Omar Epps as “Detective Malcolm Howard,” London Brown as “Marvin Thomas,” Malcolm Mays as “Lou-Lou Thomas,” Hailey Kilgore as “Jukebox,” Joey Bada$$ as “Unique,” Shanley Caswell as “Detective Burke,” Antonio Ortiz as “Famous” and Grantham Coleman as “Ronnie.”
This exciting news comes just a few days before the season 3 premiere of Power Book III: Raising Kanan on December 1st. We will be covering each weekly episode when our Powercast show returns later this week so stay tuned. in the meantime, you can check out our recaps of the season 2 finale of Power Book III: Raising Kanan in the video linked below:
