Power Book II: Ghost returns to grace our screens in just about a month from now and we really can’t wait. Now, whether you’re an original fan who like myself, literally can’t wait for the next chapter, or one who would prefer to entirely skip Power Book II: Ghost, I promise you won’t miss a thing. Catch up with the storyline here.
The official trailer for Power Book II: Ghost has just been released and the series will premiere on Sept. 6. Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions worldwide, there’s a high probability that you just might get the chance see the first episode air.
Power Book II: Ghost will initially drop at 9 p.m. EST on Sept. 6 for the first episode, after which they’ll switch to an 8 p.m. time slot subsequently, starting from September 13. Season 1 is made up of 10 episodes and will air worldwide as well as the U.S.
In the trailer, Tariq is seen, looking to hire Davis MacLean as his mom’s criminal defense attorney. Not quite sure of what he’s getting himself involved in, MacLean takes on the case for $500,000.
As you’d expect, Tariq gets the money the only way he knows how: drug dealing. He seems hell-bent on living the life his father tried endlessly to leave behind.
In the cast, Naturi Naughton continues as Tasha, Mary J. Blige as Monet, and Woody McClain as part of a crime family.
Power’ creator Courtney Kemp says series will introduce ‘host of new characters’, fingers crossed.
Both 50 Cent, executive producer and Kemp issued statements through a Starz press release to express their excitement about the first spinoff. Fans will have the opportunity to rejoin Tariq and Tasha 72 hours after the events of the Power series finale.
Kemp further stated:
“Along with reconnecting with some old favorites, we are excited for the audience to meet a host of new characters, including powerful allies like Method Man’s Davis MacLean and potential foes like Mary J. Blige’s Monet Tejada.”
According to the series’ logline, it won’t be easy for Tariq St. Patrick to juggle all of his obligations. If Tariq is to balance all of his obligations which includes his school grades, drug operation, his love life, and family, there is only one way. The only way for him to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.
Saxe is also back on the scene as the prosecutor in Tasha’s case and Monet is the head of the Tejada crime clan.
There’s also a ‘Power’ marathon happening
Just in case you forgot all the grimy details from season 6, Starz revealed a Power marathon is going down. On Sept. 5, the network will begin to air the first 10 episodes of the final season.
On Sunday, Sept. 6, they plan to drop a replay of episode 10 and then follow up with the last five, sealing things up with Tariq shooting his father. Get ready to tune in for all new action when Power Book II: Ghost arrives with Tariq in the driver’s seat.
