Power Book II: Ghost: A look at the dramatic finale
Kanan Stark’s story is set to continue with his own prequel series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan. However, with another instalment of Book II coming to Starz, Courtney Kemp has teased the series could feature some more surprise crossovers in the coming years.
Creator and head writer Courtney Kemp has given a small taster of what’s to come in the next season of Power Book II: Ghost.
The popular Starz series returned this year with a brand new spin-off, Ghost, which saw Tariq St. Patrick (played by Michael Rainey Jr.) take the reins.
Speaking to Deadline, the showrunner confirmed the upcoming slate of follow-up series could feature a number of guest appearances from the original series.
Power Book II’s thrilling season finale kicked off the New Year last Sunday, and featured the highly anticipated return of Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora).

With Book III also in the works, Kemp indicated fans may not have seen the last of Kanan Stark (Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson) who died after being set up by Tasha (Naturi Naughton).
When asked about Kanan’s return, Kemp said: “I would love to see all different versions of that, to be honest with you.
“But I want to make sure that Raising Kanan itself has an opportunity to be its own series and not make that compete with Ghost.”
Although Jackson won’t be reprising his role, newcomer Mekai Curtis will be putting his own spin on Kanan’s teenage years growing up in 90s New York.
Following the death of Tariq’s father, Ghost (Omari Hardwick), Kemp has made it clear that killed characters won’t be making surprise returns.
However, that doesn’t rule out either Mekai Curtis or 50 Cent making themselves known outside of Book III for a pivotal flashback scene.
Moreover, with 50 Cent staying on as producer, Book III could flash forward to Kanan’s adulthood, opening the door for the rapper to reprise his role one last time.
Although Kemp didn’t confirm any plans, she revealed she was definitely open to the idea of Kanan’s involvement as the series goes on.

She continued: “But yes, it would be great to have 50 in as much as we can and make sure that there’s room for Raising Kanan to really succeed.”
Long term viewers are already ecstatic at the promise of Power Book III, which promises to deliver a unique spin on the Power universe.
While no footage has been revealed, a teaser trailer previewed new looks at the cast and a funky hip-hop soundtrack.
Teasing the new series, Kemp said: “It’s a very different show in terms of pacing and feel.”
“It does feel like Power, you definitely feel the Power of that in that show, the capital ‘P’ Power.
“But it also has its own small ‘p’ power in the story that it’s telling and in its time and you want to make sure that the audience feels that as well.”
Loosely based on 50 Cent’s early life selling drugs on the streets of New York, fans are excited at the prospect of letting the rapper put his own stamp on the Power series.
Power Book II is available to watch on Starz and Starzplay.
